Record store provides space for all-age venue

By Alexis Malapitan

There’s a new local music venue and people should get excited about it.

Green Tangerine Records recently started hosting concerts at its warehouse, 300 W. Lincoln Highway in Cortland. Bands and local performers including his Inspired, Crystal Gravy, Anemic Panda and Groove Canal have been fortunate enough to perform there.

“So far the response from both attendees and performers alike have been tremendous, but there is always room for improvement,” said Terri Ainger, one of the Green Tangerine Records owners.

Green Tangerine Records’ goal is to provide an all-age venue where local artists can perform, Ainger said. Attendees are encouraged to give suggested donations at every show, but no one is turned around for failure to contribute, Ainger said.

“We’ve created a vibe that people enjoy.” said Josh Klippel, the venue’s promoter. “We’re illing a niche by providing free entertainment for all ages. It’s a great environment to both listen to and meet local artists.”

Green Tangerine Records also sells vinyl records. he owners aim to expand the venue to include additional seating, rehearsal space, a green room and a second stage by August, Ainger said.

“In the meantime, we’ll continue booking bands and do our part in promoting local sound.” Ainger said.
