Talking Ithaca Underground with Bubba Crumrine


Ithaca’s thriving music scene is driven in large part by Ithaca Underground, a nonprofit organization. Bubba Crumrine is the person at the group’s helm, and The Sun got the opportunity to speak with him about it. The Sun: What did the all-ages and DIY scenes in Ithaca look like before Ithaca Underground? Bubba Crumrine: Ithaca Underground came to be in 2007, when there was a bit of a lull in the DIY and overall music scene. There were cool bands (Fairway, Elston Gunn, The Berettas) but there wasn’t a centralized movement.
