AmazonSmile

Indy Contra has joined the AmazonSmile program. If you shop using AmazonSmile, Indy Contra will receive 00.5% of what you spend on eligible purchases. We’re able to participate in this program because we’re a 501(c)3 charity.

You may find AmazonSmile a convenient way to donate small amounts without even noticing it; we also appreciate direct donations, which are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law (and with the end of the tax year coming, many charities will remind you that donations may help you too, come April 15.)

However you chose to help, via AmazonSmile, your own charitable donations, by volunteering, or bringing cookies, are all valuable contributions to building and maintaining a music and dance community!

It’s google’s fault!

Our web software knows why our calendar disappeared, “Google took version 2 of the GCal API offline, which breaks all calendar feed displays.”

They’re working on it. For now, our “When” page has details on who’s scheduled to call or play each week.

Tuesday, November 25 will feature Adam Nichols calling to music by Convolution with Mario Joven and Adam Riviere.
