First Fest

In the little space between Christmas and New Year’s Eve, Jude and I are putting together a fun new project. We are calling it First Fest and it is the first edition of what we hope will become an annual Ithaca tradition.

The idea is to create an evening of music, art, theater, dance and local food and drink. One thing we have learned from our work with the Eden Alternative and Green House models of care is that big ideas often start small. This year “First Fest” consists entirely of a show we are putting on at a local venue called “Corks and More.” There will be four bands Hot Koko (that’s us), Comfort Ave., The Habits and Mosaic Foundation.

See the poster for the show HERE

Doors open at 8 pm and the music will start soon after. If you are in the Ithaca area this New Year’s Eve considering coming out to First Fest. Jude and I think it will be fun. It might also be the start of a new Ithaca tradition.
