TumblrEmailOther Share Options

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…

… 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.

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 […]
