Johnny’s latest album “Execute American Folklore” has just been released to critical acclaim. “There’s intense and there’s Johnny Dowd. He’s Nick Cave with a hangover. Hank’s lonesome whistle spat through Waits’s grinder, with Beefheart on the side.” – Peter Watts, Time Out. You will not get a better chance to experience authentic, courageous, contemporary American music here on our doorstep. We guarantee an unforgettable evening of gothic, junkyard Americana.
Johnny’s first national exposure in the UK came in 2003 in the beautiful, illuminating and highly recommended BBC Arena documentary ‘Searching for the Wrong-Eyed Jesus’, a musical and sociological road trip through the ‘poor white’ southern states. It’s free to view on iPlayer
A really big thank you to you all for enabling us to bring exciting world-class talent to our doorstep.

Over the past few years gardening and nutrition programs have begun to take off at our local schools. This event will help two of the local schools, Beverly J. Martin Elementary in Ithaca and Newfield Central Schools support continuing nutrition education, BJMs trailblazing Fresh Fruits and Vegetable Snack Program and a snack program pilot at Newfield. In addition, funds will support gardens and weekly in-school gardening activities at both schools. Not only do these programs benefit students, but they also have a big impact on the community as exemplified by the 350 lbs. of fresh organic produce grown at Newfield School and donated to the local food pantry!

“There are two possible options for how the gig went:
One – it was fun.
Two – it wasn’t fun.”

Waiting to go on at the 3S Art Space. Ain’t they cute?
Actually taken during sound check, but you get the idea:
Mekons rocking the Space:
“The Mekons are a band that can make you laugh, then they can tear your head off, so at the end of the night, you’ll be a laughing corpse.
