Rachael redux

Rachael redux

Here’s the Carmenesque invitation (propped up against the Kleenex box on my desk) that everyone’s talking about: an introduction week after next to Rachael Worby’s new Muse/ique orchestra. Don’t know anything more about it except the excellent local people on the board for the new endeavor from the former batonista of the Pasadena Pops include [...]

Trojan Dalai

Trojan Dalai

High above the Dalai Lama in the boxes at Galen Center wasn’t necessarily the best place to see or hear His Holiness the 14th incarnation Tuesday morning. But it was a treat to be in the room with him, and the TV screens, as at a basketball game in the arena, made him bigger. Great [...]

An Indian dancer in Old Pasadena

An Indian dancer in Old Pasadena

As part of Indelible Ink’s monthly fourth-Tuesday show at Pop on Union Street in Old Pas, Indian dancer Anupama Aranaprasad performed last night. She was joined by South Pas poet Ron Koertge, L.A. poet Wanda Coleman, Utah Poet Laureate Katharine Coles and singer Corrine May. It was another extraordinary evening of fine art and fun. [...]

Wild Wood in Altadena

Wild Wood in Altadena

This small jewel box of a cottage, a Charles Greene, is almost entirely unknown and in an almost entirely unknown Altadena neighborhood called Wild Wood, near the intersection of Holliston and Palm. The heavily wooded area surrounding the Rubio Canyon wash is so secret because it’s on private roads and driveways. Yet you can check [...]

Vote today in PUSD

Vote today in PUSD

For voters in Altadena, Pasadena and Sierra Madre today, this is the way the editorial board advocates marking your ballot. It’s going to be a crazily small turnout — just after 9 this morning, only a dozen citizens had done their duty at the Linda Vista fire station — so your vote counts, more than [...]

Wizards in Berkeley

Wizards in Berkeley

If you walk around the campus at UC Berkeley early on a Sunday morning, you never know what you’ll run into. These wizards, for instance, were filming something for a local public-access television show, and even though they handed us a flier purporting to explain what it was about — something to do with the [...]

At the Red Cross in Pasadena

At the Red Cross in Pasadena

Pasadena Red Cross head honcho Ben Green likes to open up a visit to the group’s Craven Estate HQ like this: “Back in 1926, when my dad built this place …” Ben’s Midwest boyhood was actually far from Madeleine Drive, but the estate has never looked better since its heyday, thanks to its being the [...]

Twin Peaks

Twin Peaks

You could practically hear the eerie Angelo Badalamenti music playing last Thursday as Steve Scauzillo, the opinion page editor, and I approached Crystal Lake. Creepy’s not the half of it! David Lynch has got to be inquiring about a weekend getaway cabin … We were just 26 miles from SGVN world headquarters in West Covina [...]

Bash at the Playhouse

Bash at the Playhouse

Patti Eisenberg and many others at the Pasadena Playhouse put together a mammoth party Friday night in the South El Molino Avenue theater itself, with guests entering through the stage door off the alley to find the stage itself extended all the way over the seats for dining and drinking and schmoozing. The celebration was [...]

Dancing, east of Lake

Dancing, east of Lake

Li Chang Rothermich and Michael Nickerson-Rossi dance in the Pennington Dance Group’s piece “Missing Pluto” Thursday night at the hot new performance space ARC — A Room to Create — on East Colorado Boulevard on Thursday night: www.arcpasadena.org. It was a friend-raiser for the Bella Lewitzky-trained John Pennington’s new dance space, with the interior redesigned [...]
