Skipster But Not Hipster

Saturday night, Brooklyn buzz band Beach Fossils played a gig at Wildfire Lounge on the Commons with support from Upstate New York locals Hotel Reverie. This succesful show was the product of skipster, a new music website and booking agency helmed by Ithaca College senior Scott Pollack and recent grad Michael Spreter. Beach Fossils marked the second official show for the duo, following a performance by singer/songwriter Marissa Nadler and Ithacan Emily Arin. Pollack sat down with The Sun to discuss the website’s role in Ithaca, the local music community and skipster’s myth of hipster-ness.
