Remember, it’s a hoedown not a music festival. In 2013, a few dedicated patrons including Sierra Nevada College students and alumni Drew Fisher, Rachel Blum and Cody Wilkins created the Lost Sierra Hoedown, a sustainable musical get together with a mission. On Sept. 18-22 at the Johnsville Ski Bowl, the Hoedown returned and the show continued as if the year long hiatus had never happened.
The Hoedown is a temporary utopia where like-minded people go to stomp their feet, cook up Whisperlite delicacies and explore the natural beauty of the Johnsville Ski Bowl. It lasted four days and in all that time the music never stopped. During any hour of the day there was sure to be a group of people playing all varieties of instruments from guitars to spoons. The bass player for Good Luck Thrift Store Outfit even whipped out his mustache for a birthday solo. The mustache solo is an art form that has been perfected by the Good Luck Thrift Store Outfit and must be seen to be believed.
This past summer and current semester Art and Psychology major Justine Nelson and ODAL/Entrepreneurship major Jason Maynez have organized the benefit music festival ARC in the Park.

“It is the longest running student event: for students, by students,” said Junior Sasha Severance.
The 30th annual Bohemia Night showcased the exceptional talents that are hidden within the student body at Sierra Nevada College.
To begin the “Girl Rising” presentation, Senior Kelly Benson, president of the Justice Club warned the audience that she had only seen a clip of the film and she felt that she received a kick to the stomach in the best possible way.
Every tattoo has a story, and campus is chock-full of inked up bodies. You can’t stereotype tattoos people with tattoos anymore, since according to StatisticBrain.com, 36 percent of US citizens from 18 to 25-years-old have at least one tattoo. Tattoos are here to stay.
