Cathy has loved soirees since the age of 3, when her mother bought her a pair of patent leather Mary Janes and called them “party shoes.” When she’s not covering social events, she can be found sifting through the sale racks at local boutiques or checking out a local rock band.

If the holiday season brings out your irreverent side, this is a mustsee. Each year, the funny folks at the Phoenix put together a new multisketch show, complete with dancing and music. So, if you’re the sort who might fantasize about hurling a clovestudded ham across a room at someone in a Santa sweater, keep the peace and go to the show.

Festivals

Shrine Exhibition

When: Oct. 5-Nov. 25. Where: Indianapolis Art Center, 820 E. 67th St. Tickets & info: Free; www.indplsartcenter.org. Annually, around Day of the Dead celebrations, the Indianapolis Art Center asks people to create shrines about pretty much anything their makers want to remember or honor. The result is an exhibition of dozens of folk art shrines, created by artists with and without formal training. The IAC’s other Day of the Dead events have shifted to the Indiana State Museum and the Eiteljorg.

St. Joan of Arc French Market Festival

When: Noon to 10 p.m. Sept. 8. Where: St. Joan of Arc Church, 4217 Central Ave. Tickets & info: Free; www.sjoa.org. Oui, the music at this festival is good; plus there’s a children’s play area and some cute vendors. But the real draw is the eats and the fact that you can wash them down with a bottle of bubbly. Food and beverage tickets ($1 each) buy such delights as escargot en croute ($5), a plate of bread, cheese, fruit and pate ($7) or oysters Rockefeller ($4). So, let the champagne flow ($20) and call a cab!

Music Tonic Ball 11

When: 7 p.m. Nov. 16. Where: White Rabbit Cabaret, Radio Radio and the Fountain Square Theatre. Tickets & info: $25, www.tonicindy.com. The annual home-grown rock ’n’ roll fundraiser is one of my favorite events. I love to rock, especially with Indianapolis’ uber-talented local musicians. This year, bands will cover Stevie Wonder, U2 and The Kinks, and everyone — even youngsters — can participate. It’s a great way to kick off the holiday season, and it benefits Second Helpings, a nonprofit community kitchen and food pantry.

If it’s a French Market, there must be wine. PROVIDED BY THE SOSAGROUP

THINGS TO DO EDITOR

Born and raised in Indy, Taffy has devoted most of his life to one form of art or another, and he wants to spend the rest of it telling stories about art and the people who make it. There’s a wild, woolly city happening out there, and he wants to spread the word.

Theater Scary Mary: A Poppins Parody

When: Various times Nov. 2-4, 9-11, 16-17. Where: The Q, 5515 E. Washington St. Tickets & info: Ticket prices TBA; www.qartistry.org, or (317) 677-5317. We don’t know much about Scary Mary yet, but Q Artistry earned its bonafides with “Cabaret Poe” and followed it up with a steady stream of funny, quirky productions. There’s no reason to expect that this show will deviate from Q Artistry’s charted course.

Festivals

Fall Equinox: Hungry Ghosts

When: 7:30 p.m. Sept. 20. Where: 100 Acres, Indianapolis Museum of Art, 4000 Michigan Road. Tickets & info: Free; www.ima museum.org, or (317) 923-1331. Inspired by Chinese and Japanese ghost festival traditions, Seattlebased composer Nat Evans and members of the Butler University Jordan College of Fine Arts Composers Orchestra will perform a sound installation while floating on 100 Acres Lake. Floating lanterns will serve as beacons for ancestral spirits.

Visual Art Food Con III When: 6 to 9 p.m. Oct. 5. Where: Harrison Center for the Arts, 1505 N. Delaware St. Tickets & info: Free; (317) 3963886, or www.harrisoncenter.org. If last year’s event was any indication of where this event is headed, then Food Con III will be a must-attend for locals who care about the cultivation, preparation, and consumption of nourishing food. Expect food-inspired art, exhibits by food producers and prepared foods from local vendors.

This “Food with Roots” sculpture is by Michelle Walkey-Thornburg.

Talks & Readings Henry Rollins: Capitalism

When: 8 p.m. Oct. 5. Where: Egyptian Room at Old National Centre, 502 N. New Jersey St. Tickets & info: $32.50; www.live nation.com, or (800) 745-3000. Punk icon, B-movie actor and gadfly Henry Rollins is taking his spoken-word act on the road again. This time he’s visiting all 50 state capitals, wrapping things up in Washington, D.C. on Nov. 5, the eve of the general election. The former Black Flag and Rollins Band front man can be schticky, but his curiosity and inability to sit still provide a stream of funny and provocative insights.

ROBERT SCHEER / THE STAR

Scott Avett and family bring their sounds to White River State Park.

Festivals

Music

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

Alex Ebert is the lead singer for Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros.

Talks & Readings Landmark Lyrics: Speaking Through Structures from the Past

When: 7 p.m. Nov. 15. Where: Indiana Landmarks Center, 1201 Central Ave. Tickets & info: Free; (317) 6394534. Abandoned brick kilns shaped like beehives in Medora. A chrome Streamline Moderne 1954 diner in Plainfield. A repurposed round barn in Fulton County (self-proclaimed round barn capital of the world). I’m keen to hear how Indiana landmarks like these are turned into poetic vernacular by JL Kato, Tom Orr, Alessandra Lynch, Shari Wagner, Mitchell Douglas and about 15 other poets. They’ll read their compositions in a multimedia performance at another Hoosier landmark: the restored 1891 Central Avenue Methodist church, now home to Indiana Landmarks, the state’s preservation watchdog.

Visual art “Anna T.: Balloons”

When: 7 to 10 p.m. Sept. 7 (opening reception). Where: SpaceCamp MicroGallery, Murphy Arts Building, 1043 Virginia Ave. Tickets & info: Free; (317) 426-1321 or www.spacecampgallery.com. Discovering this tiny exhibition space was like finding the prize in a Crackerjack box. Now imagine the room filled with an art installation of helium-filled balloons — touching encouraged. That’s what SpaceCamp has in store when its curators bring Anna T.’s show to Indy. Based in Berlin, Anna T. is a young artist in new media who incorporates elements of pop culture in her photography, videos and installations. It’s her first solo art show in the U.S. In “Balloons,” she questions the preoccupation and assumptions about gender definitions and identity. Easiest way to find the gallery is to enter from the Virginia Avenue door next to La Margarita restaurant and go upstairs.

CORY SCHWARTZ / GETTY IMAGES

When: 7:30 p.m. Sept. 23. Where: Egyptian Room at Old National Centre, 502 N. New Jersey St. Tickets & info: $22.50-$25; (317) 231-0000. I know why I’m attracted to Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros: They’re a throwback to the look and sound of my “formative years,” a time shaped by the Summer of Love, Woodstock, Jimi and Janis and the original Broadway musical “Hair.” With charismatic lead singer Alex Ebert twirling and hooting and clapping in rhythm, this gypsy caravan of a rock band is making a rare Indianapolis appearance. Everyone will be on their feet, dancing and swaying to the flow of peace, love and harmony.

When: 6 to 9 or 10 p.m. Sept. 7. Where: More than 30 participating galleries and studios near Downtown and Fountain Square. Tickets & info: Free; www.idada.org. First Friday is a year-round, monthly festival of art appreciation, but I look forward to September when the evenings are cooler. An intriguing event at the Harrison Center for the Arts is the “We Are City,” an initiative to support ideas for better city living. In the gym, 25 local organizations, such as Big Car and IndyHub, will share information on ways to be involved. In the City Gallery, artist boards will show what the commissioned art will look like when Eskenazi Hospital opens in December 2013. Next, I’ll head to Gallery 924 on Pennsylvania Street, for Michal Lile’s “Transitions & Possibilities.” One installation uses blue painters’ tape to create an out-of-gallery experience that will ultimately lead to the next-door Living Room Lounge. Then I’ll hit Wug Laku’s Studio & Garage to check out his digital imagery of the patterns of the natural world in a show called “Repeat.”

Theater

The House That Jack Built

When: Various times Oct. 30-Nov. 25. Where: Indiana Repertory Theater Upperstage, 140 W. Washington St. Tickets & info: $25 to $60; (317) 6355252 or irtlive.com. Last year, IRT-playwright-in-residence James Still gave us a portrait of author/chef James Beard. In October, it’s “The House That Jack Built,” about a Thanksgiving family gathering. “As a writer I wanted to dig into long, loving relationships and how they can be complicated by both comfort and liability . . . how hard it can be to make changes in your life when people are depending on you to stay exactly the way they want or need you to be,” Still said. Directed by Janet Allen, “The House That Jack Built” is a world premiere.

Born in Dublin and now living in London, Clare Murphy specializes in the strange folktales of her homeland. Shape-shifting creatures, episodes of betrayal and battle, the origin of fairies and the agonies and triumphs of heroes are part of the Irish heritage she celebrates in her physical, spellbinding act.

You may have a vague idea that figurative art is not permitted in Islamic cultures. The prohibition applies to mosques, but not generally to societies dominated by Islam. That’s just one misconception that could be cleared up as you PROVIDED BY IMA enjoy this show, which contains manuscripts, scrolls, textiles, ceramics and wood carvings, among other works from around the Muslim world.

When: 8 p.m. Nov. 2 and 3. Where: Hilbert Circle Theatre, 45 Monument Circle. Tickets & info: $20$75; www.indianapolis symphony.org or (317) 639-4300. John Nelson was always inspiring when he stood on the podium of the Circle Theatre (the name didn’t begin with “Hilbert” at the time) and conducted a big work for chorus and orchestra. The spiritually oriented music director, the orchestra’s fourth since its founding in 1930, was at the helm for 10 seasons until now-conductor laureate Raymond Leppard succeeded him in 1987. With the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir and soloists, Nelson returns to lead the massed forces in Brahms’ “German Requiem,” one of the masterworks in the repertoire so dear to Nelson’s heart. The performances will no doubt stir many hearts.

The New York Times described its 2011 premiere as “bare-bones and pure, full of the kind of rhythmic innovation that trips down one path, splinters off in different directions and then sweeps back home.” “SoLe Sanctuary” is a serious, spiritually centered presentation of tap dance as an art form by its top modern practitioner.

When: Sept. 14-16. Where: YES Cinema, 328 Jackson St., Columbus. Tickets & info: $30 to $65 passes; www.bmoviecelebration.com. The weekend dedicated to the so-bad-it’sgood, and so-bad-it’s-unbelievable realm of fringe films moves from Franklin to Columbus this year. But you can still bond with other B-movie enthusiasts and filmmakers over tales of killer lobster-clawed carnival freaks, alien spiders on acid, and plenty of mutants and zombies. Several movies will have their world premieres. Franklin resident Bill Dever founded the festival six years ago for reasons beyond camp and kitsch. “There’s a social construct behind all the goofy dinosaurs or the monsters that come out of the sea,” he told The Star last year. “They’re really trying to give a social message.”

I have suspected that some of my neighbors (current ones excluded) were involved in shady dealings, but I’ve never suspected that they were aliens. Perhaps I’ve been naı¨ve. In Jim Holt’s production, a middle-aged married couple is invited to dinner by the mysterious new people next door. Turns out, these newcomers have been sent to Earth to study humans’ food, sex, moral and mental habits. Full disclosure: I have never been to a TOTS production. But the provocative, witty posters in their window frequently stop me in my tracks on Massachusetts Avenue.
