Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

Oct. 10: Getting tickets to the Second Coming (of Bill Clinton)

It was a jumbled mess (I am told) getting tickets to Bill Clinton's book signing at the 82nd street Barnes & Noble earlier this year. This year it ought to move smoother as Butler University distributes tickets for Clinton's speech Nov. 6. If you are a member of the Butler faculty or student body, you should have your golden tickets. If you are not, you have one chance. Says the University:

Butler University today announced the policy for obtaining tickets to the upcoming speech by Honored Sesquicentennial Speaker former President William J. Clinton at Hinkle Fieldhouse. Tickets for former President Clinton’s Nov. 6 speech will be made available to the general public at 10 a.m. Oct. 10. Tickets will be distributed at the Clowes Memorial Hall box office. University officials said two tickets would be available per person. The tickets are free. Lines will begin forming at 8 a.m. at the east side entrance to Clowes Hall. Lines formed before 8 a.m. will not be honored. Absolutely no overnight camping will be allowed.
I am not sure what the university will do to overnight campers, but I would not recommend testing the matter. Campus police probably have stocks of teargas left over from the Sixties (and kept in a back room just in case Butler ever wins an NCAA championship, which seems to be cause for students to try to burn down their schools). Play it safe, show up at 8:00 Monday with a good book and make friends with other political junkies queuing up with you.

I work at bn on 82nd street. There was no problem giving out tickets. We had 500 (or so) to give out. The first 500 people in line got em. They whole day went smooth, yeah, it was crazy, but that's to be expected. Matter of fact over 700 books were signed that day.
