Movies at the Norton Simon

Movies at the Norton Simon

Everyday, the Norton Simon screens “The Art of Norton Simon” and “Sister Wendy at the Norton Simon” at least thirty-seven times. They have a really nice theater, the kind it would be really cool to see the new True Grit in. Since that’s unlikely to happen for a good 50 years or more, we’d happily [...]

Old Pasadena Cultural Dance Festival

Old Pasadena Cultural Dance Festival

It’s a busy weekend for the arts in Pasadena—indeed, it’s ArtWeekend. The big attraction is Friday’s ArtNight, what with all that free stuff. Don’t go too bananas on Friday, though, as Sunday has a festival of its own—the Old Pasadena Cultural Dance Festival: two locations, five hours, and thirteen troupes worth of bodies in motion. [...]

The Second Annual Pasadena Wine Festival

The Second Annual Pasadena Wine Festival

The Second Annual Pasadena Wine Festival is not in Pasadena at all, but in Arcadia, at the Los Angeles County Arboretum, a venue which is no stranger to large events. There will be roughly one wine for every acre—125 wines from around the globe to the Arboretum’s 127 acres (though we’re hoping they’re not, you [...]

John Cage’s First Visual Work at the Norton Simon

John Cage’s First Visual Work at the Norton Simon

It’s hard to overstate how awesome John Cage is. It’s so hard to overstate, in fact, that there’s a chance of gushing, which as a rule I don’t do. Cage broke a lot of rules, though—like the one that says music has to have notes, or that you shouldn’t put crap in a piano, or [...]

Border Radio at the Coffee Gallery

Border Radio at the Coffee Gallery

Ah, the Coffee Gallery, how we’ve missed you. And by missed you, we mean neglected you—not a mention since July! We’ve changed our ways, though—at least for this week—with a plug for this Saturday’s performance by Border Radio, an acoustic bluegrass/folk outfit that’s been stomping around Los Angeles off and on since the year 2000. [...]

Indelible Ink at POPS

Indelible Ink at POPS

On the last Tuesday of every month (except December), POP Champagne & Dessert Bar hosts Indelible Ink, a reading series featuring a diverse array of poets (Eloise Klein Healy was there last month), storytellers, musicians, and a variety act of some kind (last month, a juggler; two months ago, an opera-singing magician. He sang the [...]

Measure for Noisy Measure

Measure for Noisy Measure

A Noise Within, Southern California’s only classical theater repertory company, opens its 19th and final season in Glendale with Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure, which is the one about the dramatic founding of the Viennese Department of Weights and Measures. In the fine tradition of Baz Luhrmann et al, they have set the play in the present, [...]

A Midsummer Night’s Nose

A Midsummer Night’s Nose

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. They used to put on shows at Jameson Brown Coffee Roasters, but have recently [...]

Going Out with a POPS

Going Out with a POPS

This Saturday is both the last Pasadena POPS show of the summer season, and the last ever conducted by Rachael Worby. Her exit music will consist of movie tunes from The Way We Were, Funny Girl, The Little Mermaid (sung by the voice of Ariel herself, Jodi Benson), The Wizard of Oz, and, of course, [...]

The Pasadena Greek Fest

The Pasadena Greek Fest

What is it about Greece? Some people say it is, or was, a paradise of willful innocence, radiant with the charm of the archaic. We’re not quite as romantic as all that, though we do like Greek Weddings. And we love Greek food, which makes this weekend’s Pasadena Greek Fest a tempting outing indeed. Santa [...]
