Volume One Love

Volume One's Current Issue
Volume One is Eau Claire's wonderfully readable and informative arts and entertainment magazine. It has become an indispensable resource for thousands of Chippewa Valley residents because of the helpful info in the events calendar. It compiles almost every happening in the region and organizes it into calendar form.This means, if you have a copy of Volume One handy, or even if you have their website bookmarked, you can pick a date, turn to that day's page and see what's happening 'round these here parts. From art exhibits to concerts to community events to important civic meetings, it's all there. But, Volume One also has great articles, regular columnists and impressive local visual art on the cover of every single issue. Not to get all anthropomorphize-y or anything, but I think of Volume One as part hip little brother (with an 80G iPod full of amazing music), part Eau Claire cheerleader, and part Paris Review. Oh, and there's definitely a crunchy candy shell that asks earnest questions of how we can make life here better. I love that.

Last Saturday at The Market, an intrepid Volume One reporter braved the heat and checked us out. Look for the article in the next issue, coming out this week - it's FREE at area grocery stores or many local businesses like Acoustic, Harmony Cafe and Erberts & Gerbert's. Our community is blessed to have this wonderful resource. Thanks, Volume One! xoxo
