I am Tessa Hughes, a first year journalism student at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. I fell in love with journalism in high school while working for their newspaper The Gaucho Gazette. While there, I discovered my passion for writing about social issues and music. Going to concerts is a big part of my life and that is where I found inspiration to write about the Fremont Theater. Moving to SLO, I was worried about the lack of availibilty to live shows, until I discovered this theater. Its vintage appearance intruiged me and upon further research its history, its impact on the community, and the bands they book further excited me. That is why I chose the venue as the subject for this blog, so I could share what I have learned about this local landmark.
