Cosmic Joke Collective goes to ‘The Other Side’

May 10, 2019

On Saturday, May 11, the Cosmic Joke Collective – Ithaca’s monthly creative salon – will host "The Other Side" at Lot 10.

Strange Heavy's McKenzie Lauren Jones will perform a solo set at the Cosmic Joke Collective Saturday night at Lot 10.

This round will feature sets from one-man band Cozmic Theo, Heather Sandford and Josh Dolan of the 86ers, Strange Heavy’s McKenzie Lauren Jones, Honey Cave’s Lora Pendleton, and raucous old-time trio Pine Box.

There’s a $5 for the 7 p.m. show, which is hosted by Mickie Quinn. For details, visit


This show will wrap up the fifth season of the Cosmic Joke Collective and the last night that Lot 10 will be open under the ownership of Matty Riis and Justin McGuire. Lot 10 will change hands on May 13 and be closed for renovations until the beginning of July.

Said Quinn: "I moved back to Ithaca in August of 2015 with an idea of shaping the type of life I wanted to have and the kind of projects I wanted to produce. After meeting Matty and Justin, they booked the Cosmic Joke Collective for early October that year. Because of the success of that first show and an immediate trust in working together, I was able to flourish in cultivating creative performers and bringing them together with different performance events – and also some pretty fun dance parties that have raised thousands of dollars for charities and organizations around Ithaca (and Texas and Puerto Rico hurricane victims)

"On Saturday, I'm dedicating this show to Matty and Justin and Lot 10 – we've had a great run. Soon we'll find out what waits for us on the other side of the renovation!"
