Vaud & the Villians

Vaud & the Villians

There are 19 villains in Vaud and the Villains, beginning with Vaud Overstreet who’s described as “charlatan, seducer, tenor saxophone.” Born 1892. Big Daddy’s a fence, loan shark, and slum lord. Oh yes, and fiddle man, vocals. Shadie Sadie Sinclair probably doesn’t need to be explained. Coco Gitan is listed as a “sultry Creole queen, French […]

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.

This Week at the Levitt: Jessica Fichot and Brian McKnight.

Another summer at the Levitt comes to an end this week. The official close is Sunday’s benefit concert with Brian McKnight—one of, what, two? three? concerts that the Levitt asks us to pay for every year.

Walker Hayes at the Levitt

For week nine (week nine! What happened to weeks one through eight? How is it already mid-August?) at the Levitt, we’d like to shine a little light on Walker Hayes, who plays on Sunday.

Ximena Sariñana at the Levitt

Ximena Sariñana at the Levitt

This week’s H-P Levitt pick is a pretty easy one. The honor goes to Ximena Sariñana, a hip young thing who’s been featured on/in VH1 and LA Weekly and Spin and KCRW. And, now, on Hometown-Pasadena.com. She’s pretty good, or at least these tracks are. She just played the Echo, and now she’s playing Levitt […]

Anais Mitchell at the Levitt

Every week, there are several musical acts playing at the Levitt that are worthy of a recommendation. Even in weeks when we’re only highlighting one artist, like this week, there are probably others worth checking out. We won’t mention them, because then we wouldn’t exactly be highlighting anybody, now would we (but check the full […]
