Oct 10: Sound & Music Swap at the Ithaca Sound Maze

Sound & Music Swap at the Ithaca Sound Maze
Sunday, October 10, 1-4pm
Ithaca Sound Maze
Calkins Road, Ithaca, NY, Map

Our 12th Community Swap Meet is a very special sound and music themed event at the Ithaca Sound Maze. Sharing never sounded so good!

Bring instruments and gear (amps, cables, etc.) as well as CDs, tapes and anything music or sound related. You should also bring a tarp or table to put your stuff on. There will be an area for bartering and another for give away stuff. You can post haves and wants to the Wall of this event or to the Share Tompkins email list (see below).

While you’re at the swap, you can explore the a-MAIZE-ing 😉 Ithaca Sound Maze, a corn maze packed with interactive sound installations made mostly out of found and recycled materials that you can discover and play. It’s usually $5 to visit the maze, but the organizers are offering a special $3 entrance fee during our event.

Live music by Jamie and McKenzie! Plus everyone will get a free copy of the fall issue of Yes! Magazine in which Share Tompkins is featured!

Please plan on taking stuff that isn’t scooped up back home with you. While our volunteers will arrange for left-overs to be donated, it makes our lives much easier if there aren’t a lot of items to haul.

The group Developing Pictures will bring left-over musical instruments to orphaned children in Haiti and they will also be accepting donations of tents and other disaster relief supplies.

DIRECTIONS: From downtown Ithaca, take Route 13/96/34 South (Elmira Road) 3 miles to Calkins Road and turn right. Or you can take the bus – take TCAT #67 to Calkins Road.

Carpooling is encouraged – let us know if you need help finding a ride!

PLEASE NOTE: Event will be cancelled and rescheduled if it is raining.
