Although the thick cloud cover that's hung over Indy most of June might have you a bit confused, we're in the thick of summer concert season and, weather be damned, it's glorious. Every week there are more massive shows than any human could reasonably keep up with, let alone attend, at once — although if we ever manage to clone people, that's definitely something me and my clones would get up to — but breathe a sigh of relief, because we've got your planner covered this holiday weekend. We've outlined the ten biggest shows (including two multiday festivals) in Indy in the next few days. Why'd we pick these shows? Read on to find out. Maybe you're thinking, sure, by some bending of time and space plus a deep dive into your savings account, you can get to almost all of those shows. Sorry to disappoint: there's actually 102 more shows happening this week (that we've listed on page 32-34 in Soundcheck in your print edition. Check them out in the calendar here). Hey, it's not a bad problem for a city to have!
