Kimber Lanning might be the quintessential On the Grid guest. She’s spent most of her life in the Valley and from a young age she started contributing to the character of our metropolitan area. At 15, her first job was Zia Records, and at 19, she opened local independent record store Stinkweeds, later opened venue/art gallery Modified Arts and then formed nonprofit Local First. And she is our guest for the 18th episode of On the Grid. Come with us on her journey from music to economic development. You’d be surprised to learn how flawlessly connected these things are. Oh, and we have an announcement about the rescued Wurth House.
