Ithaca Underground 10th Anniversary Celebrations & Fundraiser!

Ithaca Underground celebrates ten years of nurturing a radically inclusive, safe space for music & art outside the mainstream.

Over the last decade, Ithaca Underground has grown from a hobby for DIY concerts to an ever-expanding, caring community of the talented, the inspired, and the weird.

In addition to hundreds of live, all-ages music events, IU continues to provide learning and growth opportunities for volunteer artists, designers, photographers, videographers, grant writers, sound engineers, and marketeers.

Our 10th Anniversary celebration kicks off, with your chance to meet the Ithaca Underground board in a relaxed atmosphere, to learn more about the volunteer opportunities and safe space that we provide to our local community. Thanks to The Watershed co-owner and long time IU-supporter Ashley Cake for the space to meet and mingle.

We continue our 10th Anniversary celebration with a visual retrospective of Ithaca Underground. Join us to look back through student documentaries, performance videos, photographs and stories from our panel to catch a glimpse of how we’ve grown into the second most active independent booking organization in Ithaca. $5 Admission.

We close our the weekend with our annual February fundraiser at the Haunt to fund another year worth of events, volunteer training, equipment, and supporting local musicians. Ithaca Beer will provide our Rolemodel IPA, exclusive to the event. A Beach Parade Spritzer, N/A mocktail will also be available just for the night. Get your tickets now.

Big thanks to our partners at McNeil Music of Ithaca, Ithaca Beer Co., Cinemapolis, & Ithaca Fantastik.

The band spent a large chunk of 2015 building a strong name for themselves within the alternative music scene. Releasing their debut EP ‘LTKLTL’ they were praised highly by The Independent, Prog Magazine, Music Week, Musical Mathematics, Echoes and Dust while Kerrang hailed them as ‘delirious instrumental maestros’. Kerrang Radio’s Alex Baker also played tracks from the release on his Fresh Blood show.

Early gigs saw the band share the stage with the likes of Maybeshewill and Lite but Dialects soon headed out on tour to promote the release of their EP first with Luxembourg’s Mutiny on the Bounty which was then impressively followed by the band being invited out to tour the UK with Icelandic giants Solstafir. Dialects returned with their new single ‘it’s not a ghost… it’s gravity’ on 23rd October and swiftly followed this up with a co-headline tour with Waking Aida.

Having now completed their 4th tour in less than a year, the band have recently completed recording their debut album and look forward to showcasing at Canadian Music Week, as well as a slot at Arctangent Festival later in the year.

Jangly psych-garage rock n roll bliss. Songs written and sung by Ithaca native Eamonn McCarthy backed up by members of Lust and Obody..

Post-9/11 mood rocktronica from Ithaca, NY. We play songs that will confuse mothers and fathers. You will like us but you won’t know why.
Water Bears was formed as a solo project in 2013 to play ambient noise music on bass guitar. Today Water Bears is a quartet playing psychedelic, doom rock (still with a heavy dose of noise) with the hopes of drowning in the vibrations created thereby. Full-band Demo and solo release in the works for Spring, 2016.
