Bailey Ploughe wears a floral bucket hat and carries a camera around the bar, you might see him in a tie-dye shirt or even behind the stage. A Cameron Crowe attitude, at first glance, you might think this guy is just another EDM fan. But then you'll notice the strobe light in his eyes.

"Music has always been a passion for me, and I've always wanted to be involved in the music scene."

Photographer, videographer, DJ, promoter, producer, event coordinator, and even mattress store manager; Bailey has a lot to add to his resume. He owns Big Picture Photography as well as New Hippies Entertainment. And even with all of this, Bailey still has many goals and dreams left to fill.

"One of my life goals is to become a touring concert photographer with a big name EDM artist. So I started coordinating and promoting shows a couple of years ago so I could start building a portfolio of concert photography."

From booking and promoting shows, Bailey cut his teeth in the music industry. Bailey began hosting shows and parties with his friends, which were local DJs and musicians. This allowed Bailey to practice his show photography skills while also making a name for himself in the music scene and offering exposure to the artists.

"At this point in life it has turned into something bigger than helping me as a photographer, I am now pursing careers in promoting and as a musician."


What does Bailey Ploughe have planned next in the scene? Blursdays.

The weekly Thursday EDM event, Blursdays, will take place at Blu Lounge on Meridian Street in downtwon Indianapolis. New Hippies Entertainment teams up with Butler U EDM club to create this night of underground music. You can expect to hear house, dubstep, trap, and even drum and bass. The first week will have free entry and will include local DJs; Not Alex, Adi Mag, Ejion, BAI, and Luso.


Bailey's love for music drives his career but also gives him a chance to support others and encourage others in the creative industry.

"I want to help the local art community, I've started doing 'Creative of the Week' post on my New Hippies Entertainment Facebook page. I'll do an interview on any type of creative and then post 2-5 different posts about that creative throughout the week."

He is also in the works of planning an event to raise money for local high school art departments.

With entrepreneurs like Bailey Ploughe, the Indianapolis EDM scene continues to grow.

"I personally think that we have amazing talent in Indiana. We also have two amazing promotional companies in Indianapolis that bring big names out! Shout out to Indy Mojo and KID Presents!'

The first Blursday will be Thursday, March 29, at Blu Lounge in Indianapolis. Music starts at 9 p.m.

10 TV Shows You Need To Watch On Hulu

Hulu is slept on

I have recently moved to watch shows and movies on Hulu and Netflix. Hulu has a lot of great shows and movies to offer that aren't on Netflix. While Netflix is still great, Hulu is definitely starting to grow on me. Here are some shows that I have watched or have started watching on Hulu that I think are pretty great!

1. 11.22.63

If you love James Franco and Stephen King, you'll love this show. The first episode is a bit long, but all the other episodes are only 45 minutes. The plot line is pretty interesting. I also like that it doesn't tell you everything, it shows it to you and you piece things together.

2. The Act

The fact that this show is based on a true story is just insane. The acting is really great, especially if you watch actual videos of Gypsy, Joey King does a great job.

3. Castle Rock

Another Stephen King masterpiece. This show is riveting and really makes you think about what the truth is in the context of the story, and brings in some ethical questions.

4. Future Man

I've only recently started this but it's pretty interesting and funny.

5. The O.C.

The O.C. (TV Series 2003–2007) - IMDb

This show was great. Sometimes it was a bit annoying, but it is a classic show from the early 2000s. You really become invested in all the characters and your opinion may change on some characters because they grow and develop throughout the show.

6. The Handmaid's Tale

If you've read the book, you should definitely watch the show.

7. Obsession: Dark Desires

I just love true crime stories and this really dives deep into crime stories and the darkest parts of humanity.

8. Intervention

This show can be really sad or frustrating, but I think it's good for people to see the reality of addiction.

9. Smallville

Smallville (2001-2011)

www.imdb.com

I also started this one very recently and I've always wanted to watch it. It can be cheesy but it's pretty entertaining.

10. Brooklyn Nine-Nine

This is a great show if you want to laugh. I love all of the characters and everything they bring to the table.
