Le Reading with Les Figues at the PMCA

Le Reading with Les Figues at the PMCA

Rojelio Cabral, Comfortably Numb A, 2008, acrylic and aerosol on paper, 6.5’ x 11.5’, now showing at the PMCA. Les Figues Press is Los Angeles’s most prominent avant-garde publishing outfit. They put out plenty of cool books by cool people. They also do stuff with artists (as opposed to writers, though this is a distinction [...]

At the Huntington: Annoying: The Book

At the Huntington: Annoying: The Book

NPR’s Joe Palca gets annoyed easily. He was so annoyed by Washington, DC in early 2009 that he decided to spend the summer at the Huntington, as the science writer in residence (he is a past president of the National Association of Science Writers). Then he wrote a book about it. It’s called Annoying: The [...]

Young Opera at Boston Court

Young Opera at Boston Court

Unless you are a devotee of the subculture, there aren’t many opportunities to hear live opera singers outside of the concert hall. There’s an opera-singing magician who shows up to Indelible Ink sometimes, but besides him, the only time I’ve heard opera is, well, at the opera. There’s no “Behind the Music” for the opera [...]

MOTA Madness

MOTA Madness

This Sunday we’re welcoming back the popular Museums of the Arroyo Day, where five museums located along the Arroyo Seco in Los Angeles and Pasadena open their doors free of charge. MOTA Day, as it is known in some circles, showcases five history-based museums that preserve and perpetuate the diverse mix of art, architecture and [...]

Feel the Rhythm with “Gershwin Alone”

Feel the Rhythm with “Gershwin Alone”

I wasn’t so sure what to think as I walked up to the Pasadena Playhouse the other night to see George Gershwin Alone, the one-man show created by pianist, actor ad composer Hershey Felder and focused entirely on the works of George Gershiwn. I do love theatre and music (and, most of all, musical theatre), [...]

Musica Angelica’s Baroque String of Pearls

Musica Angelica’s Baroque String of Pearls

“Bach Concerti” happens to be Italian for “Baroque String of Pearls”—at least when rendered idiomatically. A more literal reading might be: Musica Angelica’s upcoming performance of Bach’s Brandenburg Concerti Nos. 3, 5, and 6; Double Concerto for Violin and Oboe; and Suite No. 2 for Flute and Orchestra. (You wouldn’t necessarily think so, but Italian [...]

Rachmaninoff’s Second with the Pasadena Symphony

Rachmaninoff’s Second with the Pasadena Symphony

Rachmaninoff’s Second Symphony, if you haven’t heard it, sounds like this. Liszt’s Second Piano Concerto, like this. And that’s just on YouTube. For whatever mysterious reason, art experienced firsthand—not through recordings and reproductions—has the capacity to affect us in ways that copies do not. Something about the physical proximity of the artifact—you might call it [...]

Heavenly Curves at the Norton Simon

Heavenly Curves at the Norton Simon

Well, “Accentuated Forms” is the actual name of the Norton Simon’s ongoing discussion series focused on “representations of the female form” from East to West and then to now, but this week’s session is perhaps more aptly described by the title of this post. The topic of conversation, guided by a museum and limited to [...]

Connie Rohman at the Fremont Gallery

Connie Rohman at the Fremont Gallery

There are fifteen women showing from all over the world at the Fremont Gallery’s upcoming exhibition, “Fifteen Graces,” but we’re partial to the work of Mount Washington’s own Connie Rohman, a fiber artist who uses traditional methods and materials (hand-dyed fabrics, quilts, etc) to explore abstract shape, line, and color. She’s very talented. The exhibition [...]

How To Disappear Completely and Never Be Found

How To Disappear Completely and Never Be Found

Boston Court maintains its commitment to exciting, contemporary theater with the Southern California premiere of How To Disappear Completely and Never Be Found, Fin Kennedy’s tale of a young executive who, his life coming unspooled, decides to “disappear.” He seeks advice from a seafront fortune teller, hallucinates a pathologist who tells him he’s already dead, [...]
