Art Along the Gold Line

Art Along the Gold Line

The Gold Line Eastside extension turned 7 months old last week. The big story at the time was the brave new culinary world made easily accessible to SGV residents via public transportation. What has been less talked about is the potential bridging of the various artistic communities that make their home along the route—especially important [...]

Father’s Day PoPo Car Show

Father’s Day PoPo Car Show

Real men like cars. Ipso facto, the object of your Father’s Day celebrating will enjoy the Pasadena Police Department’s ninth annual classic car show. Roughly 100 hot rods and vintage rides will be on display, some from as far back as 1900. There will also be live music, a raffle, food booths and an auction [...]

The ’60s Revisited at Farnsworth Park

The ’60s Revisited at Farnsworth Park

The ’60s have never really gone away. Evidence: Theatre Americana’s third show of 2010, The 60s Revisited: A Musical Concert Under the Stars, a nostalgic memory down trip lane. Jerry Burgan of ’60s folk-rock quintet We Five will be playing, along with Debbie Burgan and Tholow Chan, and local guitarist and songwriter T.J. Smith will [...]

Chalk Happy

Chalk Happy

What do you get when you put 600 artists on their hands and knees for two days? Why, you get  the Pasadena Chalk Festival: 175 chalk murals all over Paseo Colorado, a mall in need of a little color if there ever was one. In addition to the pro and semi-pro art making, kids will [...]

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 [...]

They also put on shows, periodically, like the one this Friday at the South Pasadena Music Center, featuring singer-songwriter Chyla Anderson, jazz-folk singer Christine Donaldson and the [...]

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 [...]
