Just wanted to take a minute to express how sad we are to have lost another local spot. Castaways - Ithaca's Home for Live Music has shut down for good. We had some of our best shows here and we're always treated very well by everyone. I really enjoyed the old rustic feel of the place, and the fact that Castaways and the staff didn't strictly cater to any specific genre of music. It was a place that hosted music of all types. A place to see good out-of-town artists, and of course, a hot spot for locals. So, to all the staff at Castaway's, a big THANK YOU for all you've done to support local music. So sorry to hear this news, and wish you all the best.
