This Weekend at redwhite+bluezz

This Weekend at redwhite+bluezz

redwhite+bluezz, in addition to being somewhat difficult to type properly, is building something of a following—both as a jazz club with a regularly excellent lineup, and as a good restaurant with an interesting and reasonable wine list. You’ll find the full weekend schedule below, but the highlights look to be Ken Song on Friday and [...]

PMCA Opening: California Art Club

PMCA Opening: California Art Club

The PMCA has a lot going for it: good location, a great space and fresh programming. The Ulysses Guide to the Los Angeles River, in the back gallery until July 3rd, is really something. And while the excellent Millard Sheets exhibit is gone, taking its place this Sunday is the 99th Annual California Art Club Gold [...]

Nazis, Jewels, and the Fourth Reich…

Nazis, Jewels, and the Fourth Reich…

… coming soon to a Vroman’s near you! Yes indeed—documentary filmmaker and historical author Sidney Kirkpatrick will be discussing and signing his latest (deep breath): Hitler’s Holy Relics: A True Story of Nazi Plunder and the Race to Recover the Crown Jewels of the Holy Roman Empire. Whew. At minimum, the book is an account of [...]

Art on Millionaire’s Row

For further proof of Altadena’s wonderfulness, head to the library’s first annual Art on Millionaire’s Row, a free, all-day festival celebrating visual art.

Founded to help young musicians navigate the murky waters of being a young musician, the Young Musicians Project helps young musicians learn the music business through workshops and professional mentorships.

Castle Green Spring Tour

Castle Green Spring Tour

Tim Burton lived there. Charles White had his studio in the cupola of the bridge. Marcel Duchamp lived there—he had a fountain installed in his apartment*. Now, other people live there: designers, musicians, artists, collectors, tinkers, tailors, soldiers, spies. You can live at the Castle Green, too, for a boatload of money. Or you can [...]

Snotty Scotty at the Rancho

Snotty Scotty at the Rancho

Known as the “unoffocial band of Pasadena’s Occasional Doo Dah Parade,” Snotty Scotty and the Hankies take pride in their slogan: Closing Pasadena’s finest bars since 1971. This Saturday night they’ll be playing their joyous, goofy blend of surf music, rock and garage-band party music at Altadena’s Rancho Bar, one of the funkier dives around [...]

Words & Art: Written in California

Words & Art: Written in California

From science and art we move smoothly to literature and art — the same night as the Caltech talk about science and art, a new reading series launches at the Pasadena Museum of California Art. Called Written in California, the series kicks off with readings by three poets published by Red Hen Press, which recently [...]

Science Meets Art at Caltech

Science Meets Art at Caltech

It’s easy to take for granted the remarkable programming put on by Caltech, and not so easy to actually get over there and take advantage of it. But the school year is ending, and the place gets quiet in the summer, so now’s about your last chance for a few months to enjoy yet another [...]

Bike Week Pasadena

Bike Week Pasadena

Bicycles are coming back in a big way. Bike enthusiasts are organizing, in fact. Those extremists probably don’t have anything to do, however, with Pasadena’s upcoming Bike Week: three days of events celebrating the bicycle in all its glory. Highlights include: The Pasadena Crosstown Ride, Bicycle Film Night, Family and Bikes Day, and so on. [...]
