Spring is rockin'!

It's music season at the Chico News & Review! With the Chico Area Music

Festival & Awards Show coming up (April 20, 7pm, at the Sierra Nevada Big

Room), we bring you our annual Local Music Issue. In addition to

highlighting a couple of intriguing local acts—experimental hip-hop crew,

Pervert, and serious AND fun "mom-rock' four-piece, Susurrus—we check in

on area musicians who were burned out by the Camp Fire, including local

bluesman Maurice "Big Mo" Huffman.

In other news, Chico moved a step closer to a permanent low-barrier

shelter, as Safe Space and the Jesus Center presented their plans for an

Orange Street facility to the City Council. And, the measles epidemic hits

local adults, a six Butte County residents (only one a child) have been

diagnosed with the virus.

As always, thanks for reading!
