Grüp Shö at the End of the World

Grüp Shö at the End of the World

Hometown Pasadena really likes the Gallery at the End of the World, way up on North Lake. Hometown Pasadena also really likes Lynne McDaniel, who paints good. Ipso facto, Hometown Pasadena really really likes that Lynne is the featured artist at this weekend’s GatEotW show. It’s on the calendar simply as “Art Bender weekend,” which [...]

A SPECTRAL Happening at the Folly Bowl

A SPECTRAL Happening at the Folly Bowl

What do you get when you mix live video, poetry, harp, trombone, and various electronics? If you guessed “a Darren Aronofsky remake of The Music Man,” you would be wrong, though inventive. No, you get a Labor Day Weekend performance at the Folly Bowl, an outdoor amphitheater in the yard of a private Altadena home. [...]

Fusion Friday Finale

Fusion Friday Finale

Shame on us for neglecting to mention, until now, the Pacific Asia Museum’s Fusion Fridays series. So far, the Museum has celebrated the art and culture of India and Pakistan, Japan, and Thailand with special exhibitions, live music, dancing, gourmet food trucks, and a general air of sophisticated hobnobbery. This Friday’s focus is on China. [...]

This Week at the Levitt (The End!)

This Week at the Levitt (The End!)

Free Music Under the Stars comes to a close this week. It’s been a very musical summer and we’ll be sad to see it go, which it will, thankfully, with a bang and not a whimper. Thursday it’s Chuck Mead, a co-founder of the Grammy-nominated BR549, serious players in the blossoming alt-country scene of the [...]

Beethoven and Broadway

Beethoven and Broadway

Summer is almost over, which means the California Philharmonic’s Festival on the Green is, too: the last show is tomorrow. The title doesn’t leave much to the imagination—there will be Beethoven, and there will be show tunes. Specifics: the concert opens with Beethoven’s Leonora Overture, No. 3 and ends with the Choral Movement of the [...]

The Good Book of Pedantry and Wonder

The Good Book of Pedantry and Wonder

Since July 22, Boston Court’s world premiere run of The Good Book of Pedantry and Wonder has been picking up some very good reviews. Set in the English 1880s, The Good Book follows James Murray as he goes about creating the Oxford English Dictionary. The monumentality of the task—and his monomania for it—have left Murray [...]

Chamber Music at the Huntington

Chamber Music at the Huntington

Southwest Chamber Music is wrapping up its summer season with two nights of music at the Huntington. On the agenda are works by Mozart, Schubert, Brahms, as well as one piece by a contemporary American composer, Alexandra du Bois: L’apothéose d’un rêve, which etymological intuition (and Google) tells me means “the culmination of a dream.” [...]

Mark Haskell Smith Is Baked

Mark Haskell Smith Is Baked

Excuse me, that should say “Mark Haskell Smith wrote Baked,” a pot-laced Los Angeles crime and revenge novel. Experimental botanist Miro Basinas wins Amsterdam’s Cannabis Cup with a strain that tastes like mangos, after which he is promptly gunned down and jacked of his prize-winning stash by an enterprising gangster, whom Miro then goes in [...]

Rhapsody in Bess

Rhapsody in Bess

The Pasadena POPS has quite the jazzy evening lined up for this Saturday. Pianist Alfredo Rodriguez, a native of Havana who was “discovered” by Quincy Jones at the Montreux Jazz Festival, will play Rhapsody in Blue. Actress and Tony-nominated vocalist Valarie Pettiford—best known perhaps for her role as Big Dee Dee Thorne on Half & [...]

Americana Summer Concert Series

Americana Summer Concert Series

Every Wednesday this August, the Americana at Brand is having a free outdoor concert in their courtyard. Produced by Chris Isaacson of Upright Cabaret, the lineup looks to be mostly solo vocal artists of some repute. Last week it was Steve Tyrell, a Grammy-winning vocalist. This week it’s Natasha Bedingfield, the UK’s self-proclaimed biggest female [...]
