Project/Object was founded in the mid-1990s by guitarist AndrĂ© Cholmondeley and is the longest running alumni-based Frank Zappa tribute in the world. Their legendary worldwide tours have helped pave the way for a variety of contemporary Zappa tributes, and have hosted more Zappa alumni onstage than anyone other than Zappa himself. 

We were lucky enough to get the chance to speak to Denny Walley, one of Zappa's closest and oldest friends, who will join Project/Object on stage at The Hollow, along with Ike Willis, on Thursday, October 15th. Get the scoop!

Kristin Lajeunesse, author of Will Travel For Vegan FoodYou may recall nearly 4 years ago when we first brought you the story of a young Capital Region lady who was about to embark on a vegan food tour around the country.

With very little cash and a lot of faith in people's generosity, Kristin Lajeunesse of Hoosick Falls had a mission to visit all 50 states and sample and review every 100% vegan eatery each had to offer, including restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops and food trucks.

As her dream led her on an 18-month journey, she documented her reviews on her personal blog, Will Travel For Vegan Food.

Some people praised her, some criticized her, and some just couldn't wait to learn more about her trip and discoveries!
