Christopher Burgan Trio at the Coffee Gallery

Christopher Burgan Trio at the Coffee Gallery

Chris Burgan should be a familiar face by now to Coffee Gallery regulars.  He’s got his trio, which plays a wide variety of musical styles (and with more than three instruments!). And since 1998, he’s been the lead guitarist of We Five, who were nominated for a Grammy in 1965. Jerry Burgan is the only [...]

The Summoning of Every Parson’s Nose (with Food!)

The Summoning of Every Parson’s Nose (with Food!)

The mission of the wonderfully named Parson’s Nose Productions is to introduce “classic theater to family audiences,” through original one-hour adaptations of dramatic masterpieces. These staged readings are designed to be both smart enough for grownups and boisterous enough for kids, though this week’s play is maybe a little heavy for the single digit set. [...]

North by Northeast

North by Northeast

Ah, November in Northeast Los Angeles: mosaic-hued black walnut trees, emboldened coyotes, the Arroyo Arts Collective 18th Annual Discovery Tour.

NELA: where decay meets death meets drawing (and more).

This year’s pre-Thanksgiving art extravaganza has been dubbed “North by Northeast,” perhaps to firmly establish the geographic identity of the art-centric area that, after 100+ years of unflagging, creative activity, has suddenly been discovered by international publications such as The New York Times and the Financial Times of London.

It’s good to be an overnight success.

Blood & Dumplings: A Crime Bus Tour

Blood & Dumplings: A Crime Bus Tour

Once upon a time, as a college student, I put together a walking tour for a New York guidebook that covered many of the city’s famous deaths. It is in a similar spirit, I’ll venture, that the odd gentlemen of Esotouric have put together a bus tour of some of the San Gabriel Valley’s more [...]

Cookbook Exchange at the Altadena Urban Farmers Market

Cookbook Exchange at the Altadena Urban Farmers Market

It turns out Altadena, to the surprise of almost no-one, is full of backyard farmers—especially backyard chicken farmers. Last month, these industrious suburban homesteaders gathered at the Zane Grey Estate to sell their produce at an “underground” (because held on private land) farmers’ market. We didn’t write about it then because we didn’t want to [...]

A Phoenix Risen: Uptown Downtown at the Pasadena Playhouse

A Phoenix Risen: Uptown Downtown at the Pasadena Playhouse

The Playhouse was always going to survive—you can’t have a Playhouse District without a Playhouse, right? Right: the grand reopening was a month ago, with Ed Asner in FDR. Their second show is another one-performer piece: Uptown Downtown, in which the Tony-winning Leslie Uggams musically recounts her winding road to success, from Sing Along with [...]

Lian Dolan at Vroman’s

Lian Dolan at Vroman’s

Helen of Pasadena came out last week. Have you bought it yet? No? Waiting for the right moment? How about this Sunday, when author Lian Dolan will be appearing at Vroman’s to discuss, sign, and otherwise be fabulous. Even if you have a copy already, come by and get it signed by Pasadena’s very own [...]

Coming Soon to the PMCA

Coming Soon to the PMCA

The Pasadena Museum of California Art is a great little museum. Their exhibits are consistently interesting and their event programming is not shabby, either. Now that the summer exhibits, including the Design Biennial, are closed, it’s time for a fresh slate of California art. In the main gallery until March will be the porcelains and [...]

Surrogate Mothers, Outsourcing, Laughter

Surrogate Mothers, Outsourcing, Laughter

KPCC has a lot of good (in person, non-radio) programming, which we don’t mention as often as probably we should. In the name of guilt, then, we recommend this Sunday’s live staged reading of There or Here, a play by Jennifer Maisel in which a couple, as the title of this post oh so subtly [...]

Celtic Caltech: Eileen Ivers plays the fiddle

Celtic Caltech: Eileen Ivers plays the fiddle

My father, despite being of Ashkenazi descent, is convinced he is Irish at heart. Why? The music (it really gets to him). Bagpipes are best, but fiddle is a close second. He was understandably overjoyed, then, to hear that Eileen Ivers will be playing Caltech this Friday. She’s the queen of the fiddle, the winner [...]
