Caltech Is so Hot Right Now

Caltech Is so Hot Right Now
TumblrEmailOther Share Options

Summer is hot. Wild Weather—Heat, a NASA-funded hi-def documentary, is also hot, but only figuratively. Tracing the arrival of summer from desert swelter to northern idyll, from the jungles of Belize to the inside of a lightning bolt, the doc is part of NASA’s “Summer of Innovation,” a program designed to get kids—or anyone, really—a […]

Saturday at the Levitt: Alejo Aponte

Saturday at the Levitt: Alejo Aponte

The Levitt Pavilion’s free summer concert series continues. We’re particularly excited about this Saturday’s performers, Alejo Aponte y Latonera, who have a really excellent MySpace page.*  They’ve got a new album out, Gente (that’s “people” for you gringos). It’s the culmination of a long musical journey: Aponte spent nearly a decade traveling through his native […]

Arcadia in Sierra Madre

Arcadia in Sierra Madre

English playwright Tom Stoppard has made a career out of writing absurdist tragicomedies, full of mistaken identities, epigrammatic dialogue, predetermined chaos and other metaphysical, metatheatrical mischiefs. He would approve then, probably, of the Sierra Madre Playhouse’s latest production: his Tony Award-winning Arcadia. It’s not so much about the San Gabriel Valley city of 60,000 as […]

Jazz at Descanso

Jazz at Descanso

Every Thursday until August 12, some of L.A.’s finest jazz musicians will grace Descanso Gardens for “The Evolution of American Jazz,” a seriously ambitious name for a concert series. In an unusual bout of permissiveness, Descanso is allowing outside food to be brought in for these shows—picnic suppers. Take advantage, if only so you can […]

Earl Okin and the Oxford Belles

Earl Okin and the Oxford Belles

Earl Okin has been around for a while. He recorded his first single in 1967—at Abbey Road. He’s opened for an eclectic bunch of acts: Jean-Luc Ponty, Van Morrison and, in 1979, Wings. He’s skilled at performing jazz, and bossa nova—and standup comedy. What’s his show like? Who knows! [YouTube knows – ed.] The evening’s […]

Wine Tasting… and Stationery?

Wine Tasting… and Stationery?

That’s right, tonight brings a free wine tasting and educational talk at Webster’s Fine Stationers in Altadena, an event planned in partnership with neighboring (but separate) business Webster’s Liquors. Since the 4th is coming and summer is here, the focus is on wine and summer barbecues. Anne Louise Bannon and Michael Holland of OddBallGrape.com will […]

The Levitt is Open

The Levitt is Open

Music is everywhere. The latest movement to grace the summer soundscape is the beginning of the Levitt Pavilion’s free concert series, which starts this Wednesday with puppets. That’s for kids, though—at least it’s supposed to be. The “grown-up” entertainment begins Thursday with Dan Navarro & Stonehoney, a folk/country/rock outfit with a great reputation for live […]

Cal Phil at the Arboretum—with Brian McKnight!

Cal Phil at the Arboretum—with Brian McKnight!

The California Philharmonic is kicking of its 2010 summer season—code-named Festival on the Green—this Saturday, with a crowd-pleasing program of rousing orchestral numbers: Rhapsody in Blue, Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture, Copland’s Appalachian Spring and Lincoln Portrait and a medley of Sousa marches. Good stuff. Oh, and did we mention Brian McKnight? That guy who’s been nominated […]

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 […]

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 […]
