What You'll Get

$10 for a Food-Truck Festival Visit for Four (Up to $32 Value)
On Friday, October 5, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., the Old National Centre parking lot kicks into high gear with more than 20 food trucks slinging dishes accompanied by musical stylings from Delta Rae and Swear and Shake.
First Friday Food Truck Festival Presented by Leinenkugel's
The First Friday Food Truck Festival rolls into autumn atop the wheels of more than 20 munch-mobiles, which converge for four hours of food, fun, and getting funky. Truck-slung cuisine currently includes the po' boys and pudding of Chef Dan's Southern Comfort and the exotic, locally made shell-stuffers of Tacos Without Borders. Shun ovens for the barbecue-pit crisp of Byrne’s Grilled Pizza or take the A.V. Club’s word that Mac Genie is “not your mama’s mac and cheese … [it’s] gourmet without being shi-shi.” The list of participating trucks is continually updated, and more may join ranks before the event begins.
While bouncing between little bites of heaven, revelers try their hand at cornhole and sip brews from Leinenkugel or wine from Oliver Winery. October’s harvest of musical acts, meanwhile, provides a hearty country dinner for the ears. The siblings of Dunham, North Carolina’s Delta Rae smother listeners in a rich gravy of musical influences and ethereal Southern gospel harmonies. Mixing bluegrass, blues, and pop with Southern gothic storytelling, the sextet is on a hot streak, scoring a deal from Sire Records and playing on Conan and NPR’s Mountain Stage. Playing tracks from its latest album, Carry the Fire, the group recreates an old-time gospel revival in hand-clapping, foot-stomping hits such as “Bottom of the River.” Then, New York quartet Swear and Shake gives audiences a second helping of sugary harmonies, heartfelt lyrics, and gregarious banjos in the vein of Bon Iver or Mumford & Sons.

About Old National Centre
Old National Centre was originally built in 1909 as the Murat Shrine, which housed Indianapolis’s growing population of Freemasons. The building has since been restored and has become an eye-catching display of diverse architectural influences. Outside of the venue, spindly towers topped with light-blue domes rise above the street, beckoning passersby to enter the theater and enjoy a show. The classic, opulent Grand Lobby opens up to a wealth of concert venues, exhibition halls, and ballrooms that astound visitors with Middle Eastern and Victorian designs.
