The Second Annual Comix Rock: Art and Music Showcase is our art opening/burlesque show with local artists, live music and much much more. It will again be held at Local’s Only Art & Music Pub in Indianapolis.
IWG will be organizing the event with Indianapolis’ Creme De Les Femmes burlesque troop.
Here is the schedule of events:
All Night Long – Comic Art Show and Auction
7 – 9:30pm – Dr. Sketchy’s Anti Art School with the Creme De Les Femme Burlesque Troop
10 -10:30pm – Shammers and Left Hand
10:50 – 11:20pm – God Made Robots
11:45pm – ? – Five Year Mission
The theme of this year’s event is Star Trek. The Indy Webcomics Group will we publishing a 10 page mini-comic for the event featuring a starship crew fighting some space pirates. The Creme De Les Femmes girls will be in costume as the starship crew and space pirates.
The Creme De Les Femmes will host and direct a Dr. Sketchy’s Anti Art School event during the Comix Rock show. For more info on the Dr. Sketchy’s scene nationwide go here. This is where the audience participates by drawing (like art class, remember?) the Burlesque girls as they pose in costume. The girls will judge the audiences drawings and choose their favorites and award prizes accordingly.
Throughout the night there will be three local rock bands providing the music. We are damn excited to have Indy’s own Star Trek TOS tribute band Five Year Mission as the headliner along with Shammers and Left Hand and God Made Robots to complete the lineup.
Starting the night of the event July 9th and continuing for the rest of July, Local’s Only’s walls will be covered with artwork by members of the Indy Webcomics Group. 4-5 pieces each most of which will be for sale by the artist.
Also during the event: IWG will be hosting a one-night only art auction featuring more one-of-a-kind art created by members of the Indy Webcomics Group.

I was asked a few questions about our art show, our new comic anthology and webcomics in general by good friend Gary Weir. You can read the article here.
Thanks for the heads up Gary!
A REMINDER: Don’t miss our show on Friday the 23rd. Welcome to Indiana: A Comic Anthology goes on sale, see artwork on display by 13 different local comic artists and participate in a live drawing event with models from the Creme De Les Femmes Burlesque Troupe, dressed up as super heroines. Then music starting at 10pm, The Dirty Thirty, Beta Male and Destination: Earth!
$6 at the door.
It’s hard to sum up our art show happening April 23rd at Local’s Only Art and Music Pub. There’s so much going on at this event. We of the Indy Webcomics Group are releasing our anthology, a collection of comic art and short stories entitled: Welcome to Indiana. The show also launches our display of comics and art which will stay up at Local’s Only through the end of May.
Lady Lenore Evermore and The Creme De Les Femmes Burlesque troupe will be hosting a Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School event, anyone can participate in. The Femmes models will be dressed in super hero garb, and prizes will be given out, donated by Hero House Comics.
The show will be $6 at the door. Free goody bags will be given to attendees courtesy of Hero House Comics.
This kind of event is a first for us but most likely not a last. There’s something in the mindset of local artists and local musicians that both groups share in common. They occupy overlapping circles of creative energy and interests. The combination of the two, with live art models and costumes and prizes is a no-brainer.
