Free show! IU + CFCU Summer Concert – Saint Mela + Junkyard Theory

In partnership with Downtown Ithaca and CFCU Community Credit Union, Ithaca Underground presents:

Saint Mela
http://saintmela.com/

Saint Mela is a D.I.Y. indie-pop three-piece based in NYC. Created in 2014 by Steven Dewey (production, keys) and Wolf Weston (lead vocals, lyrics), Saint Mela’s experimental live set and style-bending sound has drawn comparisons to artists across genres. Saint Mela cultivates a raw and striking live performance that swings an audience through every emotion possible, only made stronger with the addition and energy of drummer Jason MacDermott. Well-known for utilizing sets to test things out on an audience, (be it new music, images, or spoken word), they always offer a viewer something different and exciting. With a penchant for innovative found-sounds, inventive melodies and harmonies, and a wide range of influences between the three core members, Saint Mela aims to keep listeners dancing, feeling, and engaged while working on their debut release for 2018.

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.
