ITHACA, N.Y. –– The Cosmic Joke Collective Presents Ithaca Free Clinic Benefit Show: The Beatles Tribute.

The show will feature members of Noon Fifteen, Thru Spectrums, The Uncommons, Vee Da Bee, Hollow Choir, and more.

The fourth annual Ithaca Free Clinic benefit will take place on Saturday, Nov. 23 at the Haunt, 701 Willow Ave, Ithaca. Doors open at 7 p.m., with music and raffle prizes, and the main show begins at 8 p.m. All proceeds from the evening’s event will benefit the Ithaca Free Clinic.

The theme of the night marks a special event in music history.

“In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the release of the Beatles’ Abbey Road, the entire album will be performed, along with other popular Beatles tunes,” said Mac Myers, producer of this year’s show.

This year’s sponsors for the event include CFCU Community Credit Union, Illume Projects, and The Ithaca Voice.

Executive Director of the Ithaca Free Clinic Norbert McCloskey said, “we are so thankful to have this support of our local music and business communities. The Ithaca Free Clinic has provided free integrated medical assistance to nearly 1000 uninsured and under-insured members of our community to date this year. With the number of uninsured Americans continuing to climb, we believe more than ever, the Ithaca Free Clinic will be needed to care for the uninsured and underserved members of our community.”

The Ithaca Free Clinic opened its doors in 2006, and is operated by the Ithaca Health Alliance, a 501(c)3 organization. According to their website, “our mission is to facilitate access to health care for all with a focus on the needs of the uninsured and underinsured. We believe health care is a human right.”

Tickets are $10 purchased in advance and $15 at the door.

Tickets can be purchased online at:

The Haunt’s website, the DSP website or at the Ithaca Free Clinic site.
