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 [...]

Laughter Yoga

Laughter Yoga

We’re not entirely sure what Laughter Yoga is, except that it’s an international social moment with local chapters—Laughter Clubs—all over the place, and that you can do it standing, sitting, with a mat, without a mat, and wearing anything you damn well please. If the video on this page is any indication, it seems to [...]

Hindu-Buddhist Sculpture Lecture at the Norton Simon

Hindu-Buddhist Sculpture Lecture at the Norton Simon

The title almost says it all here. It leaves out the rather important fact that space is limited—no more than twenty-five people at a time can share in the esoteric knowledge being disseminated by the Norton Simon’s crack team of curators (sign up at the Information Desk at least 15 minutes before the start time [...]

Conjunto Los Pochos at the Coffee Gallery

Conjunto Los Pochos at the Coffee Gallery

When I was six or seven years old, Santa Claus brought my father an accordion for Christmas. He took it up in earnest, practicing long into the night. After he gave up trying to get better (which was quickly), he continued playing for a while, primarily out of a desire to irritate his family. Don’t [...]
