FAA just got awarded the Duff McDuff Green Jr. Grant by the Community Foundation of the Rappahannock River Region (CFRRR) to hire an outreach director for Studio 15! And... we've hired the WONDERFUL Kana Zink! You may know her as the bassist from deafening shoegaze act Raw Feels, but she is also an accomplished music therapist with a Bachelors degree in Music Therapy from Berklee College of Music. As the Studio 15 Outreach Coordinator, she'll be reaching out to other local nonprofits, schools, and anyone interested to help spread the good word of digital arts and media education! So, rest assured that classes and events at Studio 15 are on the way soon! The official press release is here.

In the mean time, we have a bunch of cool events coming up including a show featuring Miniboone (from New York) and the Anatomy of Frank (from Charlottesville), as well as a HUGE show with CYMBALS EAT GUITARS (ahhhh!!!!) A TON of other shows are also in the works over at our Youth Advisory Council; so....

KEEP YOUR EYES PEELED!!
