Barbara Morrison at the Levitt

Barbara Morrison at the Levitt

Last year, the Levitt Pavilion’s free summer concert series was called “Free Music Under the Stars.” This year, it just seems to be called “Free Summer Concert Series,” which is a perfectly fine name, if a bit utilitarian. What’s in a name, though, as long as there is music? And there will be music: fifty [...]

Festival of the Arts at Theatre Americana

Festival of the Arts at Theatre Americana

Last year, Theatre Americana returned to Altadena after a ten year absence. With their New Deal origins, they’re a community theater in the best sense: by the people, for the people, happily ever after, amen. Their next event is this Saturday, a “Festival of the Arts” featuring lots of music, singing, dancing, lyric theater, regular [...]

The 2011 Pasadena Chalk Festival

The 2011 Pasadena Chalk Festival

The merry band of funky do-gooders known as the Light Bringer Project put on all manner of arts events throughout the year, but none—with the possible exception of the Doo Dah Parade—are as big and wonderful as the Pasadena Chalk Festival, which every year brings six hundred (600!) artists to the Paseo Colorado to cover [...]

At Vroman’s: Making It; or, How to Not Be a Consumer

At Vroman’s: Making It; or, How to Not Be a Consumer

Urban homesteading, despite the recent trademark kerfuffle, is a broad movement with practitioners all over the world. Among those practitioners are Kelly Coyne and Erik Knutzen, Silver Lake residents and authors of The Urban Homestead, a handy guide to growing stuff for city dwellers. They’ve followed this well-received volume up with Making It: Radical Home [...]

Music! Birthday! Pasadena! Fireworks!

Music! Birthday! Pasadena! Fireworks!

Unless you are well connected in the centenarian community, it is unlikely that you know anybody as old as the city of Pasadena, which is turning 125 this year. Among the many celebratory events is the Pasadena POPS’ first summer concert of the season, the Fireworks POPS Spectacular, which will have fireworks set to music, [...]

Roy Zimmerman at the Coffee Gallery

Roy Zimmerman at the Coffee Gallery

Roy Zimmerman is a singer, songwriter, and political satirist. The tagline on his website is “Funny Songs about Ignorance, War and Greed,” which is a pretty good tagline aside from that missing Oxford comma. He’s popular on the YouTube, where his videos have accumulated a few million page views (then again, so has this). He’s [...]

The San Marino Motor Classic

San Marino, one might reasonably assume, has more than its fair share of beautiful classic cars. Per capita. So does Pasadena, if the recent Old Town Ferrari Show is any indication (not that all Ferraris are classics, but you know what we mean). Even if you’re not what is known in the culture as a [...]

Young Artists Night One Year Anniversary

Young Artists Night One Year Anniversary

We’ve plugged a few of these things since what was apparently the first Young Artists Night, way back in June of 2010. YANs are a program of the Young Musicians Project, which exists to help young musicians figure out how to be young musicians. For their one year anniversary, they are busting out the all-stars: [...]

Pasadena Master Chorale: Season Finale

Pasadena Master Chorale: Season Finale

It’s hard to believe the PMC has only had three seasons—they seem like a much older institution—but three seasons is all, the most recent of which comes to a verdant conclusion this weekend with “The Green Concert,” a program of pieces that pay tribute to the Earth and attend to our experience of the natural [...]

Lisa See at Vroman’s

Lisa See at Vroman’s

What is there to say about Lisa See that hasn’t already been said? A great deal, probably, like the fact that she’s got a new book out, and will be reading from it and signing it at Vroman’s this Thursday. The book is Dreams of Joy, a sequel to Shanghai Girls, the 2009 novel which [...]
