James Ellroy at Vroman’s

James Ellroy at Vroman’s

James Ellroy, the “Demon Dog of American crime fiction,” the self-proclaimed “greatest crime novelist who ever lived” (“to the crime novel what Beethoven is to music!”) has a new one out, a memoir, The Hilliker Curse, exploring his own troubled past: his parents’ divorce, his mother’s murder, drug abuse, depression—a regular Thursday evening at Vroman’s, [...]

Dan Cole Trio at redwhite+bluezz

Dan Cole Trio at redwhite+bluezz

As his bio makes clear, Daniel Cole is a musical jack of all trades. Currently the director of Commercial Music Studies at PCC, Dan has worked as a church organist, scored films and commercials, played guitar for Burt Bacharach, and, most entertainingly, for 500 performances of CATS. As a local (besides his PCC gig, he [...]

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.” [...]
