The State Theater in Ithaca, New York is a hot spot for the local music community. In any given year, the non-profit theater hosts 75-90 performances that consist of touring artists. However, when COVID-19 hit, the venue’s source of income became obsolete, and managers at the venue worried about keeping the place afloat.

Throughout the last few months, Localify team members have been hard at work to make the app better, smoother and more cohesive than ever. That hard work paid off. Today, we hit the ground running as we officially relaunch Localify, continuing to help users all across the continent connect with local musicians and events in their area.

On any given night in Ithaca, New York, live music is never too far away. Whether it be an acoustic set at the Bernie Milton Pavilion, a touring band at the historic State Theater, local groups jamming at Porchfest or the town’s annual Grassroots Music Festival, there is no shortage of local music events to explore.

Throughout the last few years, Jake Luppen has come up as one of the biggest artists in the Twin Cities music scene. You probably know him as the frontrunner for indie-rock group Hippo Campus, but he has also worked on projects including ‘Baby Boys,’ an artist/production trio, and ‘Lupin,’ his 2020 solo album.

As we prepare to re-launch Localify, we look forward to once again connecting people all over the continent with live shows based on their Spotify listening trends. The app, in itself, provides a direct connection between community members and the local artists that feed their local music scenes.

This was my first experience with local music. The first one I remember, anyway. As I grew up, my community continued to shape and expand the way I thought about local music and taught me the meaningful impact it can have on a community.

Financially supporting local artists, musicians, venues, and retailers is a crucial way people can give back to their communities. It not only benefits local artists and venues but consumers themselves and the community as a whole.
