Benfit Concert for SE Indy Neighborhood Gathering

The Community Building Committee hosting a benefit concert to help fund the next Neighborhood Gathering tonight (Friday, Nov. 13th) at Radio Radio. It is a 21 and over venue.

All proceeds from this show will go directly to provide food, child-care and other services for next fall's Neighborhood Gathering.

Entrance to the show at Radio Radio on Nov. 13th will be $5. Doors at 8 PM, music at 9 PM. Jon and Denise Martin, DJ, Playboy Psychonauts.

The Playboy Psychonauts play psychedelic fez-fueled lounge music. The trio unearths lost classics and original compositions and matches them with familiar favorites to keep everybody moving. Or contentedly sipping on your drink. Whichever one works for you.

Jon and Denise Martin are an acoustic Americana style duo, and not nearly as bad as that sounds. Jon was a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist in Sindacato from 1997 till just recently, and recruited his wife, Denise to sing and play with him. While working on their own material, they play a few Sindacato favorites as well as several choice covers.

The Community Building Committee is an organization composed of interested Southeast Indy residents, Neighborhood Associations, and Institutional Partners like Southeast Community Services (SECS) and Southeast Neighborhood Development (SEND) CDC. The goal of this organization is to gather and disseminate information about and to Southeast Indianapolis. The Community Building Committee hosts an annual event called the Neighborhood Gathering to gather input for a Quality of Life Plan for SE Indy. This event gathers over 200 interested residents to review what has happened in the last year and any revisions to the plan to work on in the upcoming year. The event is being held Nov. 5th this year.
