8-1-2019 Yelp's Indy Fringe Preview Event

As a Yelp Elite, Cara gets to go to some really cool and fun private events. This one was a preview of several of the acts performing at this year's Indy Fringe Festival in downtown Indianapolis. It's a non-juried event, so you get all kinds of acts, some really good, and some that just don't resonate. But, it's a good venue for up-and-coming and experimental artists.

While the Yelpers filed into the event, we were treated to the beautiful, soulful sounds of Allison Victoria Music. She had an
incredible voice and presence, despite claiming to have mostly lost her voice that day. Her father was on the saxophone.

There were nice Grilled Cheese samples from a local restaurant, Rooster's Kitchen.

There were also free smoothie samples from Tropical Smoothie Cafe in Carmel, Indiana.

Cara had the Blueberry Bliss smoothie with blueberries, strawberries and banana, and it was good.

A song preview from Make Me A Match.

Christian and Catalina, the husband and wife team performing mind reading tricks from their act, Mind Tripping Show.

A scene from Game of Crows: Winter's Coming, a parody of Game of Thrones.

Taylor Martin doing a bit from his show called Tasty Bits.

Improv from Stroopwafel.

Beyond Ballet - Cara failed to get an action photo of their lovely, improvisational dance.

A scene from Orgasmo Adulto Escapes From The Zoo.

The Amazing Barry, with a helper he picked from the audience, doing his "yoga card trick" from his show, A Fine Collection
of Magic.

This was Cara's favorite act. He actually picked out the card from between his feet while doing a headstand.

Michael Swinford doing an honest and depressing monologue about coming out from the show,
The Only Worse Thing You Could Have Told Me.

A scene from Another Mulligan, a show about times you want "do-overs" in life.

"Joan of Arc" singing a funny rendition of "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes" from Mad Women's Late Nite Cabaret.

Cool art inside the Indy Fringe theater.
