Kid’s Night at Levitt Pavilion: Puppets!

One night a week of Levitt Pavilion’s free summer concert series is devoted to the little ones who walk amongst us. No, not midgets, but children. We’ll be spotlighting these weekly offerings in this space all summer long, so keep your eyes peeled—you never know where the next Raffi might come from. Kicking things off […]

Make Music, Pasadena!

Make Music, Pasadena!

World Music Day, or the Fête de la Musique as it is called in its country of origin, is this Monday. On it, musicians all over France will take to the streets and play, jam, rock, shred and otherwise produce the noises that we have come to classify as music. The Fête has spread to […]

The ’60s Revisited at Farnsworth Park

The ’60s have never really gone away. Evidence: Theatre Americana’s third show of 2010, The 60s Revisited: A Musical Concert Under the Stars, a nostalgic memory down trip lane.

Chalk Happy

Chalk Happy

What do you get when you put 600 artists on their hands and knees for two days? Why, you get  the Pasadena Chalk Festival: 175 chalk murals all over Paseo Colorado, a mall in need of a little color if there ever was one. In addition to the pro and semi-pro art making, kids will […]

This Weekend at redwhite+bluezz

This Weekend at redwhite+bluezz

redwhite+bluezz, in addition to being somewhat difficult to type properly, is building something of a following—both as a jazz club with a regularly excellent lineup, and as a good restaurant with an interesting and reasonable wine list. You’ll find the full weekend schedule below, but the highlights look to be Ken Song on Friday and […]

PMCA Opening: California Art Club

PMCA Opening: California Art Club

The PMCA has a lot going for it: good location, a great space and fresh programming. The Ulysses Guide to the Los Angeles River, in the back gallery until July 3rd, is really something.

Nazis, Jewels, and the Fourth Reich…

Nazis, Jewels, and the Fourth Reich…

… coming soon to a Vroman’s near you! Yes indeed—documentary filmmaker and historical author Sidney Kirkpatrick will be discussing and signing his latest (deep breath): Hitler’s Holy Relics: A True Story of Nazi Plunder and the Race to Recover the Crown Jewels of the Holy Roman Empire. Whew. At minimum, the book is an account of […]

Dionne Warwick Benefit Concert for Levitt Pavilion

Dionne Warwick Benefit Concert for Levitt Pavilion

Every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday night, from June 23rd to August 29th, there is free live music at Levitt Pavilion in Pasadena’s Memorial Park. That’s a lot of music.
