Issue: February 02, 2017

Hey everyone,

Welcome to this week's issue of the RN&R. Trump's first week in office has been full of craziness, and News Editor Dennis Myers put together a story about how local people and organizations are responding to Trump's refugee ban.

On the cover this week is a story from Editor Brad Bynum about the Holland Project, Reno's teen-oriented music and art venue, which turns 10 this year. The story includes a ton of insight from people who've been involved in the organization over the course of the last decade, including some who've been with it since the very beginning.

Over in the arts section, we've got two stories from Arts editor Kris Vagner. For Art of the State this week, she covered a showing of Las Vegas Gig Depio's work in the Nevada Arts Council's front office. You can check it out through March 17 at 716 N. Carson St., Carson City. And the Arts & Culture story this week is about independent film series and festivals that make February a good time for locals to enjoy the great indoors.

In Musicbeat you can read about Fossils, a new local band whose sound is a chameleon blend of rock 'n' roll styles. And don't forget to catch up on the latest columns from regular contributors like Sheila Leslie, Brendan Trainor and Bruce Van Dyke.

Pick up a paper copy to see content that's not available online, like our weekly cartoons and the Streetalk column. This week, I asked five people to tell me what music they were into as teens. And there are, of course, a million cool things you can do with old newspaper. For example, if you stuff it in your shoes overnight, it will remove the smell from them.
