WHO WE ARE
Fanclub is a Cornell-based club that bolsters the Ithaca music scene with intimate, high-energy shows that showcase bands of all sounds. In the past we've had a knack for booking bands just before they reach indie music stardom, but mostly we just want to make the kids dance.
And you can too! Join the listserv to find out when we meet, come to meetings with ideas for shows, and start contacting bands AFTER contacting an officer!
to add yourself to the listserv, which sends out information about both meetings and shows send an e-mail to email@example.com with a blank subject and body content join fanclub-l “yourname”
for problems with the listserv or website, contact Jessica. for questions about promotions, contact Lauren. if you are a band looking for a show, please contact Andy.
Fanclub was recently praised by Jenny Eliscu in her guidebook: “Schools that Rock: The Rolling Stone College Guide” because “some college students have been working to boost the town’s rock scene. The Cornell-based Fanclub Collective, for instance, formed in 2001 by Chris Adams and Jessica Wolkoff to encourage the development of a stronger indie rock scene in Ithaca. [… T]he Collective worked to bring more obscure acts, and has succeeded in booking bands including Interpol, the Arcade Fire, the Walkmen, Broken Social Scene, and Ted Leo and the Pharmacists” (p. 137-139). -Eliscu, Jenny. “Schools that Rock: The Rolling Stone College Guide.” New York: Wenner Media, 2005.
