Didn’t know you were on here @onewayness, nice to hear from you!

@healthylives it’s a small upstate city, in a lot of ways what you would expect, but in a lot of ways not what you would expect. We have a really nice community of artists in all disciplines, and in that we have a really nice electronic scene. It’s been great doing these shows because we actually have a lot of local people who are excited to play and bring their friends.

We also have a monthly electronic night, where people play solo sets and there is a big group improvisation. That’s called White Noise Workshop (, and it’s got a totally different vibe from the Alternative Electronic Music shows.


Looks like an awesome place, messaged! :relaxed:

Would you be interested in folks from further afield?:slightly_smiling_face:

Woah very cool! I’m out in NJ. Gonna throw you a message.

I can happily attest to @Andrew_Sblendorio doing a great job on every front. He has a nice post here

which discusses his perspective nicely.

Figure From Ground had a great experience playing at the Other Side in Utica! :+1:

Sure! Send me a message if you’d like to talk.

Hi Andrew. I’ve got some family moving to Utica this year, so I’ll be finding myself in that area more often. Would love to set something up for later this year. I’ll contact you once I have a better idea on timing.

That’s not something you hear every day! Looking forward to it!!

Messaged! Sounds like a good time to me!

I just want to say thank you to everyone who has responded to this thread! We have two great shows now lined up for the spring and I couldn’t be more excited.

@carltesta is going to be playing this Saturday (3/9/19) along with two local artists: Tim Schram and the newly named PhairLite CMB.

Then on 5/25/19, we will be visited by @n-So. He’ll be joined by Buffalo New York’s Joe Myers, as well as Utica based electronic band Murder Dream.

I’ll be posting some pictures of the show this weekend!


I had a fantastic time at The Other Side with @Andrew_Sblendorio Alexis, Tim, and Craig. What a great bunch of folks and an amazing community of interested people. Highly recommended on all fronts. Thanks so much!


Like @carltesta said we had a great time last night! Here’s a few pictures from the wonderful Alexis Aguam:


If anyone is around Utica, NY today, we’re having a great show tonight featuring @n-So, Chuck Miller doing visuals as well as an audio visual set ( | and the Utica based electronic band Murder Dream. I’ll be playing some Jan Garbarek on vinyl…we’re going to have a fun night!

We had another great show last night! Here’s a few pictures courtesy of Alexis Aguam:


And here’s the poster for our next show! We’ve got @mzero coming out to play and I know we’re really looking forward to it:


Had a really great time playing there, couldn’t have asked for a better experience to play one of my first shows, @Andrew_Sblendorio made everything so easy and enjoyable and was super accommodating. Definitely hope to come back!


Ooh. I might have to trek out from Albany just to check this out. I’ve been going to the synth nights in Ithaca when I can manage. Good times, but three hours out of my way.

Cool @CaneMan! We’d love to have you come out. This next show is going to be a lot of fun.

Another great show last night with @mzero! We had a lot of fun. I personally got a lot of fulfillment getting out and doing a solo guitar set. I believe Marc took some video we should be able to share later. Here’s some photos, courtesy of my brother Tom of
