Privatizing the League of Women Voters

Privatizing the League of Women Voters

The title of this post is misleading in all sorts of way, but hopefully sensational enough to get you to read the post, which is about an important issue: privatization. A controversial subject, to put it mildly. We’ll refrain from expressing an opinion here, other than to suggest that you might want to check out […]

South Pas Art Crawl

South Pas Art Crawl

Crawling has become a popular activity for grownups as well as infants. If you are interested in trying out grownup crawling, but aren’t too keen on its most common expression—the pub crawl—then this Saturday’s South Pasadena Art Crawl may be for you. In addition to a supportive environment in which to get around on hand […]

Support the Coffee Gallery!

Support the Coffee Gallery!

If you pay much attention to local bureaucratic outrages, you’ve probably heard rumblings about the Coffee Gallery Backstage’s problems with the county, which have worked themselves out, sort of: the county isn’t going to shut them down, but because the CGB is in a mixed-use area, they need a conditional use permit, which means they […]

The Edited Trio in Pasadena

The Edited Trio in Pasadena

The Edited Trio are in the middle of a seven-country tour to promote their new CD, “Infinite Distance.” They’re an eclectic bunch with an eclectic background that resists summary—you can read about them here. Most importantly, they’re good. They’ll be playing Firefly in South Pas this Wednesday, and then a private show this Friday. RSVP […]

The Traveling World War I Exhibition

The Traveling World War I Exhibition

Do you have Groundhog Day plans? No? We do: stopping by the Traveling World War I Exhibition, which, best we can tell, is housed in a big rig that will be parked just above City Hall, on Thurgood Marshall Street. Pasadena is stop #33 on a 75-city tour, which is a lot of cities. The […]

LitFest Pasadena Fundraiser #2

LitFest Pasadena Fundraiser #2

We covered LitFest Pasadena’s first fundraiser way back in October. Round two is set for this Sunday, and should be a decidedly less racy affair: school kids singing and acting (including a bit from Hamlet, rumor has it) instead of poetry and naked people. It’s happening at the Mountain View Mausoleum, a stunning locale. We could […]

Fred Korematsu Day

Fred Korematsu Day

Fred Korematsu was born on January 30th about 90 years ago. In 1942, aged 23, he refused to go to an internment camp. His case went all the way to the Supreme Court, which ruled that yes, he did have to go to the camps. His conviction stayed on the books until 1983, when it […]

Pacific Serenades Kicks Off Its 26th Season

Pacific Serenades Kicks Off Its 26th Season

…this Sunday at the Neighborhood Unitarian Universalist Church, which is a good place to kick things off. In the program are Beethoven’s String Quartet in D Major (Op. 18, No. 3), Ravel’s Sonata for Violin and Cello, and a new piece by Laura Karpman called “Different Lanes for string quartet and iPad.” The program is […]

A Tribute to Julia Morgan, Architect

A Tribute to Julia Morgan, Architect

Not everyone gets to have their profession follow their name, set off by that cool comma, and have it both look and sound good. Julia Morgan, Architect is such a person (Sam Spade, Private Eye is another, and he’s not even real). Julia Morgan, Architect was California’s first licensed woman architect. She built Hearst Castle […]

Connie Rice at Vroman’s

Connie Rice at Vroman’s

If you’re a young whippersnapper like me, maybe the first you heard of Connie Rice was on KCRW earlier this week, talking about suing the LAPD into reform and meeting child assassins in housing projects. If you’re not a whippersnapper, and you’ve paid attention to the recent history of law enforcement and civil rights in […]
