    Hey guys, my girl and I are heading to Indiana here this month and we could use some help. We're hitting the Disturbed show on the 24th in Indianapolis and then the Deadboy and the Elephantmen show on the 27th in Fort Wayne. We're trying to fill in the space between those two dates and we're not having much luck with finding things to do.

    I'm curious if anyone can recommend any attractions to check out or bands to see(any style). Any TBer's playing out that weekend by chance?

    So, any indiana folk have any suggestions? Or even cool things in nearby states would work too.

    Oh I miss Indy. :crying:

    Anyways, you looking for good places to go and see? I list a few of my favorites.

    Clubs I like:
    The Slippery Noodle Inn (blues) http://www.slipperynoodle.com/
    The Vogue (mainly rock but other stuff as well) http://www.thevogue.ws/inside.html

    Monument Circle (it has a museum underneath it and you can go up to the top inside)

    The World War Memorial

    The Eiteljorg Museum (Native American) http://www.eiteljorg.org/
    The new Indiana State Museum http://www.in.gov/ism/

    The Indianapolis Motor Speedway or as most know it, the home of the Indy 500. They have a golf course, car museum, and a tour around the facilities. http://www.indy500.com/

    There is really a lot more than just museums and such but it is hard to remember right now. I moved from there in '97 and visit once a year so...if anything else come to mind I'll add it later.

    BTW, Indy is a great city. I'm sure you'll like it.

    Ok, things fell through on the Disturbed show(unless we can get some scalped tickets).....and that sucks.

    So, I'm wondering if any TBers or anyone that TBers would recommend happen to be playing around Fort Wayne or Indianapolis on Friday, Saturday or Sunday.

    Or if anyone knows of anything else cool to do in the area music related or not.

    It's appreciated guys....the vacation isn't looking like it's going to be flying too great....but I'm damn sure gonna try and make the best of it.
