Usually, music notices are a weekend phenomenon here, but we are struck by the worldly variety of music available in one weeknight tonight in Ithaca:
Chicken Fried String Band, 6 pm at Maxie's. The band is a variation on the Evil City String Band, with Richie Stearns on banjo, Steve Selin on fiddle, and Pat Burke on guitar from the ECSB, sitting in with friends. Evil City is getting ready for a big gig in Geneva next week, appearing before a talk by Amy Goodman at the Smith Theater on Friday the 21st.
Traditional Irish Session at the Chapter House. This weekly session is anchored by members of Traonach, a local band and one of the foremost Irish bands in New York. 7 pm.
Reggae Tuesday at Castaways is, as the name implies, a regular gig. Tonight is a special appearance by STRIVE, with members of Thousands of One. 9 pm.
Pachanga Latina at the Haunt tonight features DJ Tico. 9 pm.
