Ithaca Underground’s second annual ONE FEST hits in less than three week. We’ve upped the ante on this all day fest of extreme music, with Dragged Into Sunlight (UK), Primitive Man (CO), Cult Leader (UT) and tons of favorites from the Northeast – plus the all new Noise Deck stage, featuring 10 of New York State’s finest underground DIY experimental & noise acts, blasted through 3,000W of power, on the Haunt deck.
Get pumped for this Exploding In Sound double-feature, with one-off performances from Boston’s Pile & Palehound (as much requested, by you our IU community) and don’t miss what will be one of the best Ithaca shows of 2016.
Information here. Lust, Shore Acres Drive, & Teencat support.
Shore Acres Drive began in 2013, when Charlie Fraioli started uploading his acoustic demos to bandcamp. He was initially timid about performing live, but eventually debuted his stripped down arrangements of indie/punk at the Ithaca Underground stage of Ithaca Festival in 2014. That show got him hooked on performing, and he soon became a regular opener at IU shows. By the end of the year, James Manton (bass/vocals) and Jake Burchard (drums) had joined the group and released their debut EP, Middle of Nowhere.
The trio began writing together while also earning opening spots for bands like Posture & the Grizzly and Cloud Nothings. The band’s sophomore EP, set for an early 2016 release, showcases a major shift in songwriting. Songs ebb and flow from atmospheric instrumental passages to urgent moments of catharsis, all with a touch of pop sensibility.
