Ithaca Weekend, 31 Aug. - 1 Sept.

We are a bit surprised to note that there is not a glut of entertainment this 3-day weekend, when people presumably have more time for fun. Maybe the performers need time off, too.

Friday, 8/31: Richie Stearns and Friends, in the alley at Felicia's Atomic Cafe, "Happy Hour" show, with $2 Yuengling pints and other specials. 5:30 pm.

Johnny Dowd and Fiends (including headliners Tsar), Lost Dog Lounge, 10 pm.

Saturday, 9/1: The Lansing Harbor Festival. This is the first annual, we believe, and it was thwarted by near-tornado like conditions in last Saturday's thunder- and lightning storm. Organizers are betting it won't strike twice. The Burns Sisters perform from 2-4 pm. Other acts include Pete Panek, Tom Knight, and their respective ensembles. For full schedule and details, check

Wingnut and Hank Roberts bring heady, exciting jazz to the Chapter House, 10 pm.

Happy Labor Day -
