What to do this Weekend

What To Do This Weekend 10.4-10.6

Friday, October 4th

Following a successful inaugural gathering, the Post. Festival is back for year two with a grander scope and eyes set on establishing the finest assemblage of niche rock artists to take place on American soil. Following the examples set by like-minded European events, the Post. Festival is as much about community and respect and support as it is about music and culture. It is a celebration both for fans and artists, an opportunity to come together and revel in a scene that has built itself from within to the point of global presence, without the aid of commercial status. Some of the most exceptional and creative musicians work within the realms of “post”-adjacent genres, and it is this festival’s goal to bring as many of them as possible together for one weekend to give them the opportunity to show out and share their work with a wildly dedicated fan base. 2019’s event shines a bright light on some of America’s greatest “post” artists and includes the first of hopefully many more appearances by international acts, with one band making the journey all the way from Chile. Taking place Friday and Saturday, October 4th and 5th at the Irving Theater in Indianapolis, the lineup features O’Brother, The End of the Ocean, Spotlights, HOLY FAWN, RANGES, Lowercase Noises, Hotel Neon, The Life and Times, Pray For Sound, Shy, Low, Au Revoir, Moira, I/O, SOM, Wander, Driving Slow Motion, Girih, Baikonur, Circus Trees and Doktra.

Celebrate the final First Friday of the year with Harvest in the Haute! Enjoy fall weather, a pumpkin truck, vendors from the Terre Haute Farmers Market and more! Grab your pumpkin spice latte, wrap up in a scarf and come downtown! First Friday takes place tomorrow downtown from 5-9pm.

Join the Clabber Girl Bake Shop this Friday, October 4th for their Chef’s Night at Clabber Girl event, featuring Asian Cuisine. Stop in anytime between 6-8pm. No reservation needed. Live Music! Cash Bar Available.

The Rohingya, natives of Rakhine State in Myanmar, have been the frequent target of genocidal violence by multiple regimes in Myanmar. The most recent and ongoing round of violence has displaced over 700,000 Rohingya into neighboring Bangladesh and around the world. Yasmin Ullah will recount her experiences fleeing one of the many attacks on the Rohingya by Myanmar’s government and her journey to becoming an activist for her people, raising awareness for those still facing persecution, and the difficulties surrounding the return to Myanmar.

Yasmin Ullah is a Rohingya social justice activist born in Northern Rakhine state of Myanmar during a time when genocide was brewing in the region. She fled to Thailand in 1995 along with her parents and remained a stateless refugee in Thailand until 2011. She currently serves as the President of the Rohingya Human Rights Network, a non-profit group led by activists across Canada in advocacy and raising public awareness of the Rohingya genocide. Yasmin is also a research coordinator at Free Rohingya Coalition, which is a global network of Rohingya activists and friends of Rohingyas who share common concerns about Myanmar’s ongoing genocide and the need for Rohingya genocide survivors to play an active role in seeking a viable future.

Yasmin is currently completing her undergraduate degree in political science. Additionally, Yasmin is actively involved in creating more accessible mosques and places of spirituality to those with special needs through her work in co-directing HAMDA (Helping All Muslims with Different Abilities).

Admission is free and open to the public. This event is made possible in part by the Florence and Laurence Spungen Family Foundation.

“Be the Change” is CANDLES’ award-winning film and speaker series that features stories of personal courage, resistance, and heroism.
