PMC Does Rachmaninoff’s All-Night Vigil

PMC Does Rachmaninoff’s All-Night Vigil
TumblrEmailOther Share Options

“All Night” has a beautiful history in music. For example: “You Shook Me All Night Long.” Rachmaninoff’s “All-Night Vigil” (op. 37) is a lot like that. It’s an intense choral work, an hour long, in fifteen movements, sung without instruments. It’s based largely on Russian Orthodox chants, just like the AC/DC classic. And just like […]

Boston Court Fundraiser!

Boston Court Fundraiser!

Boston Court is, by now, in our minds, a beloved Pasadena Institution. They do good, important work. And they know how to throw a party. They’re throwing one this Saturday, for instance: Backstage Bacchanalia @ Boston Court. It’s in their parking lot, which is spacious and pretty nice as far as parking lots go, and […]

Drawing Marathon; It’s a Monster

Drawing Marathon; It’s a Monster

One day. Four one-hour shifts. Twenty-five artists. It’s the Monster Drawing Rally. Held at the Armory and established by Outpost for Contemporary Art, you can enjoy a cold one provided by the local Craftsman Brewing Company, loosen your limbs dancing to a live DJ, and satiate your appetite with purchases from the many food trucks […]

Helen of Pasadena Comes to Altadena

Lian Dolan is a cool lady. She wrote a book, Helen of Pasadena, that is very funny and has sold really well. So well, in fact, that one might even call it a bestseller. Lian has made many appearances in support of Helen throughout Pasadena. Now it’s Altadena’s turn: the Friends of the Altadena Library have […]

The PMCA is Ten Years Old!

The PMCA is Ten Years Old!

That’s older than some people I know (never mind whether or not ten-year-olds are people yet). To celebrate their anniversary, and to kick off their summer exhibitions, they’re having a party this Saturday from 7 – 9 p.m. First things first: there’ll be a (cash) bar. Few things compare to drinking in a museum. More […]

The Byrds and Beyond at the Coffee Gallery Backstage

The Byrds and Beyond at the Coffee Gallery Backstage

John York played with The Byrds. And The Mamas and the Papas. And Dr. John. And a bunch of other great musicians. Because that’s what you do when you yourself are a great musician: you play with others like yourself. He’ll be playing the Coffee Gallery this Friday, along with Billy Darnell and Chad Watson, […]

Co-Creator of The Daily Show at Vroman’s

Co-Creator of The Daily Show at Vroman’s

Have you ever heard of Lizz Winstead? Neither had I, until poking around the upcoming Vroman’s events and seeing that Mizz Winstead will be there this Thursday promoting her new essay collection, Lizz Free or Die, and that she’s a co-creator of The Daily Show. Poke around a little more and it turns out she was […]

Nature in Asian Art at the Norton Simon

Nature in Asian Art at the Norton Simon

As long as there has been art, people have been drawing nature. It’s pretty, you know. The way different cultures over time have represented nature is the stuff of a million theses. And while you wouldn’t think one could cover something as broad as “the role of nature in Asian art” in an hour, that’s […]

LitFest Pasadena this Saturday!

LitFest Pasadena this Saturday!

You’re going, right? You can read all about it here. We’ve been covering this one pretty extensively. We’re very involved. We think it’ll be good. You’ll enjoy it. You should go. Four Pulitzer winners, a grip of great panels and exhibitors, fun for kids, food trucks, authors, books, life. The only thing missing is puppets. See […]

The Children, A World Premiere at Boston Court

The Children, A World Premiere at Boston Court

You guys know Medea, right? Not personally, but as a mythical figure and a Euripedes play? She kills her kids to spite her husband? That one. Okay, so imagine that a character from the play rescues the kids from their mother and accidentally time travels with them to modern-day Maine in the middle of a hurricane? That’s The Children, […]
