When: Fri., June 20 and Sat., June 21 2014
We wrote about it extensively last week (and gave them a Cultural Vision Award to top it off), but we’ll say it again — we’re totally jazzed by what new non-profit/long-time institution Musical Family Tree is doing in the Indy music community. They’re celebrating with a duo of shows at a trio of venues this weekend with more Hoosier acts than you can shake an tulip-poplar stick at (tulip poplar being the state tree of Indiana, must keep our colloquialisms Hoosier, of course). They’re kick off on Friday at the Speak Easy with a fundraiser party on Friday, featuring Hen, Ko, Jorma Whittaker and Heavy Hometown and Christian Taylor and Homeschool. Mr. Kinetik will take over the stacks all night, and MFT-affliates BrainTwins have planned some installations for the space. On Saturday, they’ll take over Prospect Street with show at White Rabbit and Radio Radio ($8 in advance and $10 at the door for both venues); sets by ByBye, Sweet Poison Victim, S.M. Wolf, Andy D, Shame Thugs, Ghost Town Collective, Oreo Jones and Raw McCartney are planned.
