You know that video of the deer walking through someone's yard, where it encounters a jungle gym thing and when it climbs through it, sounds exactly like the drum solo from "In The Air Tonight" by Phil Collins?

I feel like Soundcheck is kind of like that.

FRIDAY 10.26
Atmosphere at The Vogue


What do you get when you cross an ant with a slug? Well, if you answered “the hip-hop equivalent of a mutant ant-slug,” you’d be right. Slug and Ant, a.k.a. Atmosphere are back at The Vogue on Friday night, hot off the Oct. 5th release of My Vida Local, their seventh studio album. They’ll be rocking the stage with Dem Atlas, The Lioness and DJ Keezy. Don’t miss it.

Kim Kenny at The Jazz Kitchen

Kim Kenney

Indianapolis native Kim Kenny is a powerhouse vocalist and songwriter. She’s been performing as long as she can remember, starting with singing gospel music at her father’s church. Since then she her gift has taken her to all the way to Showtime at The Apollo Theatre and the Steve Harvey Show. Don’t miss her tribute to Aretha Franklin on Friday at The Jazz Kitchen.

MONDAY 10.29
Lake Street Dive at The Vogue

Lake Street Dive

Monday is your chance to catch Lake Street Dive when they come to blow the roof off The Vogue. The Brooklyn-based band hasn’t ever been able to be pinned down to one genre or style, as evident on their latest release Free Yourself Up. Think pop meets jazz, and then they meet rock and roll and all go off somewhere to dance until the sun comes up.

Slothrust at HI-FI



Get your Halloween on at HI-FI with Slothrust. They just kicked off a two-month tour after The Pact was released on on September 14th and they’re swingin’ through Indy with Mannequin Pussy. Go to the show, dress like a rusty sloth or something. Whatever you do, just promise me you won’t attend the Hobo Johnson concert. That shit is problematic as fuck.
