A Local Bakery, A local Feel

November 07, 2017

In Homage Bakery, the smell of savory croissants, sweet treats, and a homey feel welcomes you in, and offers a calm refuge from the stress of work, school, and daily life. Personally, I have enjoyed hitting up this quaint little cafe for a nice chat with friends, some time to focus on writing, or a quick treat. The bakery, founded in 2011 by chef and baker Nicholle Alumbaugh, has a unique, yet familiar and homey atmosphere that brings in regulars and tourists alike. Student/barista Emily Schmid is the quintessential Renoite, reflecting the laid-back vibe that flows through the air with the scent of fresh fallen snow. Read More

In the Northern Nevada community, many musicians have shown their support towards the DACA program through their music and performance. Vocalist and guitarist Dan Morse of Reno’s indie-rock band, Fine Motor, has worn a piece of paper taped onto his guitar strap that says “Pass the Dream Act,” since 2011. He plans to keep it on until the act is passed and allows immigrants affiliated with DACA to stay in America. Read More

Holland Project Photo Essay

January 01, 1970

I walked into the Holland Project’s music space, immediately greeted by a glistening disco ball spinning overhead and reflecting sharp beams of light in every direction. A psychedelic tapestry served as a backdrop for the main stage already set up with guitars, mic stands, amps, a drum kit, and endless wires slithering along the floor. With my camera cradled in my hands, peeked into the green room tucked in the back corner of the space where I found members of the night’s headlining band, Palehound, lounging until it was their time to shine.

The Studio Review

The overall easygoing vibe of The Studio allows its clients to relax, forget about everyday troubles, and connect with like-minded people. Besides just yoga, The Studio offers a variety of other neat activities that attribute to it being so far out.

Post-tragedy Las Vegas welcomed the sarcastic, blue-eyed singer at the Brooklyn Bowl on his tour. I found myself in general admission, between the bowling alley and the clinking of glass from the bar. The area filled up after a time, with all walks of life battling for a spot closest to the much anticipated singer. Misty’s opening act, Weyes Blood, warmed up the crowd. After her lovely performance, Father John Misty followed. Read More
