Ben Folds in Indianapolis

By on August 12, 2019

Saturday evening was a perfect night for a concert, and the Lawn at White River State Park in Indianapolis hosted yet another incredible show for Indianapolis area folks before its planned renovation starting in three weeks.

Ben Folds and Violent Femmes announced a co-headlining summer tour, and the 14-date U.S. trek launched July 28th in Uncasville, Connecticut and concludes August 16th in Kansas City, Missouri. The supporting act for Indianapolis was the lovely and talented Savannah Conley. Let’s start with her…

Savannah Conley is a singer-songwriter based out of Nashville. Her music has been classified as “organic pop”. It has a quirky, edgy feel to it, but she’s a solid performer, with a voice of an angel. She seems like she isn’t very happy, though. Note to Savannah: Smile at the photographers in the pit. Check out her beautiful performance, here:

Violent Femmes are an American folk punk band from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, initially active from 1980 to 2009. The band has since been active again from 2013. The band consists of singer, guitarist and songwriter Gordon Gano, bassist Brian Ritchie, saxophonist Blaise Garza, and current drummer John Sparrow. Violent Femmes have released ten studio albums and 15 singles during the course of their career. The band found immediate success with the release of their self-titled debut album in early 1983. Note that like Barenaked Ladies, there are no men in the band. Check them out as young men, below:
