Joe Ganim is standing on a table or stage—you can't quite tell which—in the dusky yellow light of an old building. The ceiling above him is tile, studded with low lights.

Tiffany Jones: “To realize that I could experience other people’s cultures through their food … I love experiencing what other people feel to be nostalgic. Doing that through food is doing that in such a fun and gratifying way.” Tagan Engel Photo.
Netta: “So what I notice, especially in the music scene, sometimes everybody leaves Connecticut. And it shouldn’t be like that. I want to bring pride back to being from here. We did this here. This is just for you and I. This is for us.” Lucy Gellman Photos.
