This Week at the Levitt: Thao and the Get Down Stay Down

This Week at the Levitt: Thao and the Get Down Stay Down
TumblrEmailOther Share Options

It’s Levitt time: six weeks of free concerts, Wednesday through Sunday, in good old Memorial Park. As we do every year, we’ll be spotlighting one show a week for the duration. Because, you know, we’re curators. Our pick this week is Thao and the Get Down Stay Down, who, in a week of strong acts, takes down the […]

This Week at the Levitt: Locos Por Juana

This Week at the Levitt: Locos Por Juana

It’s Levitt time: six weeks of free concerts, Wednesday through Sunday, in good old Memorial Park. As we do every year, we’ll be spotlighting one show a week for the duration. Because, you know, we’re curators. Our pick this week is Locos Por Juana, a Miami-based Afro-Caribbean jam band known for their on-stage dynamism. They’ve also been nominated […]

The Fauré Requiem & Other Lenten Treats

The Fauré Requiem & Other Lenten Treats

Another free classical music concert in a religious setting for your consideration: the Fauré Requiem, “one of the monuments of choral literature,” along with works by Jean-Jules Amable Roger-Ducasse, Charles Villiers Stanford, and Anton Bruckner—motets, mostly. The occasion (although does anyone really need an occasion to do the Fauré Requiem?) is Lent, which as everyone […]

Billy Mitchell at the Levitt

Billy Mitchell at the Levitt

Every week, there are several musical acts playing at the Levitt that are worthy of a recommendation. This week—week eight (can you believe we’re at week eight already?) —we’re going with Billy Mitchell, the great jazz pianist and producer, who we’ll soon be running an interview with. Have a little listen here.   Billy Mitchell […]

Barbara Morrison at the Levitt

Barbara Morrison at the Levitt

Last year, the Levitt Pavilion’s free summer concert series was called “Free Music Under the Stars.” This year, it just seems to be called “Free Summer Concert Series,” which is a perfectly fine name, if a bit utilitarian. What’s in a name, though, as long as there is music? And there will be music: fifty […]

This Week at the Levitt (The End!)

This Week at the Levitt (The End!)

Free Music Under the Stars comes to a close this week. It’s been a very musical summer and we’ll be sad to see it go, which it will, thankfully, with a bang and not a whimper. Thursday it’s Chuck Mead, a co-founder of the Grammy-nominated BR549, serious players in the blossoming alt-country scene of the […]

Americana Summer Concert Series

Americana Summer Concert Series

Every Wednesday this August, the Americana at Brand is having a free outdoor concert in their courtyard. Produced by Chris Isaacson of Upright Cabaret, the lineup looks to be mostly solo vocal artists of some repute. Last week it was Steve Tyrell, a Grammy-winning vocalist. This week it’s Natasha Bedingfield, the UK’s self-proclaimed biggest female […]

This Week at the Levitt

This Week at the Levitt

      Free Music Under the Stars rolls on. This week’s lineup is especially potent. Thursday it’s Blame Sally, a Bay Area phenomenon who’ve been compared to Jane Siberry, the Indigo Girls and The Joy of Cooking (?), which is a roundabout way of saying they are folk rockers. Friday it’s Adele Jacques/Paris Loves […]

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 […]

Free Music Under the Stars

Free Music Under the Stars

Orchestral music is one of those things that’s never as cheap as you think it should be. Sure, it often requires dozens of performers with advanced training, expensive equipment, and other costly things, but it’s not like it’s Rock (Me Amadeus).… anyway. Every year, the Pasadena POPS puts on a free concert in front of […]
