It’s the last week of the Old Pasadena Film Festival, which is a shame, because few things are as pleasurable as sitting outside on a warm summer evening, watching a movie. And there are some good ones this week: Napoleon Dynamite on Thursday, What’s Up, Doc? and Vicky Cristina Barcelona on Friday, and a Streetcar Named Desire and Psycho on Saturday.

This Week at the Levitt: Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds

It’s Levitt time: six weeks of free concerts, Wednesday through Sunday, in good old Memorial Park. As we do every year, we’ll be spotlighting one show a week for the duration.

MUSE/IQUE Summer Series Opener with Arturo Sandoval

MUSE/IQUE Summer Series Opener with Arturo Sandoval

Rachael Worby’s new project, MUSE/IQUE, is about a year old now. MUSE/IQUE, in case you missed it, is an orchestra, a community-oriented orchestra playing both highbrow classics and otherbrow standards in non-traditional locations (i.e., not the concert hall). Worby, its mastermind (or “artistic director” if you prefer), was the music director of the Pasadena Pops […]

John Vorhaus at Vroman’s

John Vorhaus at Vroman’s

I don’t know John Vorhaus, or how he pronounces his last name, but I think we can be forgiven for thinking it looks and probably sounds more than a little like “Voorhees,” as in Jason Voorhees, the, ah, moral center of the Friday the 13th movies. Ordinarily we’d allow this similarity to pass unmentioned, but there’s a […]

Degas Tour at the Norton Simon

Degas Tour at the Norton Simon

If you’ve ever been to the Norton Simon, it’s hard not to notice the abundance of Degas. The place is lousy with them. They’re everywhere, a race of tiny inky dancers. If you’ve ever wondered about those dancers, the principles underlying their fluid grace, you might want to stop by the Norton Simon this Friday […]
