Having a place like Go Wayne County bookmarked on your phone to learn about the latest events happing around you is one thing.
Having a friend who always knows what’s going on, like a local “Oracle of What’s Up” (or OoWU!) is also a really handy thing.
How to Pronounce OoWU!

OoWU!’s are special people who are always out and about in the community and connected with everyone in their niche. Their business is knowing what’s going on. Which makes them treasure troves of what-to-do information when you follow them.

Meet Joe Augustin! AKA Achilles Tenderloin
Chances are you already know Joe from somewhere. That’s because he’s everywhere in the community. Especially when it comes to local live music events (he’s an incredible musician and songwriter) and events like the Richmond Farmer’s Market and other places where he shows off his other artform…
He’s the de facto Oracle of What’s Up! not for just knowing where live music is happening, but he’s usually the coordinator of live local music events. From his own creation, Lyricists Corner, to organizing musical talent to play at Elstro Plaza during farmers markets and summer events, along with music events in local establishments year-round.
Here’s a schedule Joe just shared on his Instagram account about what he’s up to in September:
Fri 8/27: Cedar Coffee (New Paris) Guest hosting acoustic open mic, 7-9pm
Sat 8/28: Bellbrook Art Fest 11-6 (art)
Thu 9/2: Mashcraft Brewing (Indy) Achilles w/ Moriah Haven
Fri 9/3: Beech Grove First Friday (art)
Sun 9/12: AppleFest (New Paris) Achilles set, also art vending
Sun 9/19: Lyricists’ Corner (Richmond)
Sat 9/25: Oktoberfest (Richmond) art vending
Sun 9/26: Chautauqua Art Festival (Madison) Achilles w/ Moriah Haven
(Look at all the new things to do that you learned about just there!)
Joe coordinates all the music for the Richmond Farmers Market on Tuesdays, too!
