Weekend Update! Looking for a fun Indiana weekend getaway? Or are you a local looking for entertainment close by? Check out the endless possibilities for fun and relaxation happening this upcoming weekend in Lafayette-West Lafayette, Indiana.
In Lafayette this Saturday, January 21, come out to listen to the Ana Egge Band at the Lafayette Brewing Co. Ana Egge's songs are low and lonesome, big square-state noir ballads which she plays on a guitar she built with her own two hands and sings like she's telling us her deepest, darkest secrets. She is a gifted guitar player-dubbed "the folk Nina Simone" by no less than Lucinda Williams. Ana Egge's latest album "Bad Blood" perfectly encapsulates her sweet melodies, soft mixture of country and alternative rock and deep haunting lyrics.
West Lafayette, Indiana, offers a weekend of musical entertainment starting with the Panamanian jazz pianist and two-time Grammy winner, Danilo Perez & Friends, performing at Loeb Playhouse at Purdue University. On Saturday, January 21, he will kick off the Purdue Jazz Festival with a global, all-star band that celebrates the music and bountiful inspiration of his mentor, Dizzy Gillespie.
