This week I met with Bianca Ornelas – local muralist and illustrator whose political portraits have attracted a lot of attention in recent months. We met at our mutual favorite dba256 in Pomona, which was gracious enough to let us hang out for a few.
I met up with Jorge and Joseph of Thee Azmatics at dba256 in Pomona (thanks for letting us hang out). We talked music, day jobs and scenesters while The Ramones played on the speakers in tribute to the absent Jacob. Show up next time.
I met up with Vic Alva of Emo Night Pomona to talk about his history with the event, working with artists both iconic and on the rise, as well as Emo Night’s new home at dba256. This is a longer one, so strap in.
