Design Biennial at PMCA

Design Biennial at PMCA

We’re very fond of the Pasadena Museum of California Art, especially their extra-curricular programming. The fourth installment of their Design Biennial, which began two weeks ago and runs until Halloween, is using a new format. Rather than have a juried competition, the PMCA asked notable professionals from five fields to curate their discipline’s category: Rose [...]

Chris Holden’s Block Party

Chris Holden’s Block Party

Chris Holden is the Pasadena City Councilperson for District 3, which has a funny shape and includes most of Old Town and the Playhouse District. This Saturday, he is hosting a summer block party for District 3, which you can attend even if you are from District 9. There will be live music, hot dogs [...]

Ancient Future Benefit Concert

Ancient Future Benefit Concert

The Ancient Future Quintet, one of the band’s many configurations. Ancient Future is a band, I think. They’ve been playing world fusion music, a term bandleader Matthew Montfort claims he coined, since 1978. Their upcoming date at the incredibly atmospheric Folly Bowl (an amphitheater in the yard of a private Altadena home) is but one [...]

The Laramie Project

The Laramie Project

The Milestone Theatre Company is nearing its third birthday. Founded in the fall of 2007 by restless PCC theater students, The Milestone has grown into a community of dozens of local artists. Their latest production is The Laramie Project, by Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project. It is the true story of [...]

Ryan Bingham at the Levitt

Ryan Bingham at the Levitt

Hyperbole: When Jeff Bridges won an Oscar for his portrayal of Bad Blake in Crazy Heart, it was on Ryan Bingham’s coattails. Not hyperbole: Ryan Bingham is a great alt-country singer-songwriter, who won an Oscar and a Golden Globe for his tune “The Weary Kind,” which Jeff Bridges performs in the movie—with Bingham and his [...]

This Week at the Old Pasadena Film Festival

This Week at the Old Pasadena Film Festival

The hits keep coming in the Old Pasadena Film Festival’s third week: Thursday is noir classic Sorry, Wrong Number, in which hypochondriac, bedridden millionaire’s daughter and Oscar nominee Barbara Stanwyck overhears two thugs plotting a woman’s murder in a crossed phone connection. As she tries to unravel this telephonic mystery, she becomes convinced she is [...]

This Week at the Levitt

This Week at the Levitt

Free Music Under the Stars rolls on. This week’s lineup is especially potent. Thursday it’s Blame Sally, a Bay Area phenomenon who’ve been compared to Jane Siberry, the Indigo Girls and The Joy of Cooking (?), which is a roundabout way of saying they are folk rockers. Friday it’s Adele Jacques/Paris Loves L.A. doing the [...]

Cal Phil, John Williams, and Assorted Rings

Cal Phil, John Williams, and Assorted Rings

Last month it was Brian McKnight. This month, the California Philharmonic continues its Festival on the Green with a “ringing” tribute (oh jeez) to John Williams, Howard Shore and Richard Wagner. Cal Phil will play from several Williams-scored films: E.T., Superman, The Terminal, Schindler’s List and Star Wars (during which there’ll be a laser light [...]

Cosmic Thunder: Taiko Drumming

Cosmic Thunder: Taiko Drumming

Taiko is “drum” in Japanenese—“great drum” or “wide drum” specifically, though the word is now used to refer to several different Japanese drums. Taiko have been around since the Yayoi Period (300 B.C.E. – 300 C.E.), and they play an important role in Gagaku, one of the oldest styles of court music still in existence [...]

Cal Phil at the Old Mill

Cal Phil at the Old Mill

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 [...]
