Locals Only Thursday in Old Town
TumblrEmailOther Share Options

Beginning September 1st (tomorrow!) and lasting through the last Thursday of October, the merchants of Old Town (sounds like a folk song—“The Merchants of Old Town”) will be offering special discounts and promotions to “locals,” (defined as anyone who lives or works in Pasadena—bring a driver’s license, electric bill, or business card to prove it).

This Week at the Levitt: Jessica Fichot and Brian McKnight.

This Week at the Levitt: Jessica Fichot and Brian McKnight.

Another summer at the Levitt comes to an end this week. The official close is Sunday’s benefit concert with Brian McKnight—one of, what, two? three? concerts that the Levitt asks us to pay for every year. The last free concert is this Friday, and it should be a good one: Jessica Fichot is one of […]

POPS Does the Movies

POPS Does the Movies

What else is new, right? Still, the POPS is a very fine orchestra, and hearing movie scores sans movie is an experience worth having more than once. It’s an eclectic selection of films this time around: A Salute to Gene Kelly Gigi An American in Paris Schindler’s List The Informant! That last one in particular […]

ENNIO! at the Playhouse

ENNIO! at the Playhouse

Ennio Marchetto bills himself as “The Living Paper Cartoon,” which is a pretty apt description for… this:   It’s paper, and cartoony looking, and we’re guessing Ennio is probably alive, so yeah. If the above seems enjoyable to you, considering catching one of Ennio’s seven performances this week at the Playhouse. They start on Tuesday, […]

Alice LaPlante at Vroman’s

Alice LaPlante at Vroman’s

Imagine you are suffering from dementia. You’re living your life as best you can, coping with your deteriorating mind, trying to remember what your children look like. You’re getting by. Then, the police start showing up at your house to question you about the murder of your best friend and neighbor, whose fingers were removed […]

Walker Hayes at the Levitt

Walker Hayes at the Levitt

For week nine (week nine! What happened to weeks one through eight? How is it already mid-August?) at the Levitt, we’d like to shine a little light on Walker Hayes, who plays on Sunday. Those boyish good looks are a little funny looking, if you ask us, but he’s a big up-and-comer in the country […]

Kim Dower at Vroman’s

Kim Dower at Vroman’s

Kim Dower is a pal of ours, which makes us all the more qualified, we think, to recommend her reading and poetry workshop at Vroman’s this Thursday. Come to hear her read some poems from her debut collection Air Kissing on Mars (out last year from Pasadena’s own Red Hen Press), stay for a free […]

Billy Mitchell at the Levitt

Billy Mitchell at the Levitt

Every week, there are several musical acts playing at the Levitt that are worthy of a recommendation. This week—week eight (can you believe we’re at week eight already?) —we’re going with Billy Mitchell, the great jazz pianist and producer, who we’ll soon be running an interview with. Have a little listen here.   Billy Mitchell […]

Cal Phil at the Old Mill, Finale

Cal Phil at the Old Mill, Finale

Which Mill? Why, the Old Mill—the one in San Marino that’s been there since 1816 and is the oldest commercial building in Southern California. It was a grist mill. Now, it’s an historic treasure, as well as a venue, playing host to a California Art Club gallery, Bar Association Dinners and the titular summer concert […]
