Music All Dressed Up

Music All Dressed Up

“It’s runway the MUSE/IQUE way.” Mingling, dining, music, and a runway show. MUSE/IQUE plays the likes of Nat King Cole, Elvis Presley, Janis Joplin, and Michael Jackson—”artists who defined our style.” MUSE/IQUE will perform on the 8th floor of The Tower on Los Robles Avenue,—in “an office stripped bare.” Come listen to music, nibble and […]

Arroyo Seco Music Festival

Arroyo Seco Music Festival

Tom Petty, Weezer, Mumford & Sons. Need we say more? Not really. Though we will. This inaugural Arroyo Seco Weekend is scheduled for June 24 and 25, and is promoted by Goldenvoice, the folks behind Coachella (so watch out). We can’t quite picture how it will be set up as the location is stated only as the […]

Gumbo y Sopa

Gumbo y Sopa

It is said, “many ingredients go into soup.” And so it is that many ingredients make up the vast array of cultures we enjoy all around us in Southern California. Clazzical Notes was founded by Jerri Price-Gaines to illustrate through music and discussion “how seemingly dissimilar ethnic groups share a common humanity.” Clazzical Notes’ inaugural […]

2016 Bridge Party

2016 Bridge Party

Beautiful steel rims and pony seats, Wreck N Sow and Crimson Crowbar, rum punch and lemon lager, and Bling Bling dumpling’s and Big Mama’s ribs: get yourself ready for Pasadena Heritage‘s 2016 Colorado Bridge Street Party. For the last “Party,” we arrived just as the sun was heading for the treetops. We strolled the walkway of […]

Farnsworth Free Concerts

Farnsworth Free Concerts

Much of the beauty of summer is being and “doing” outdoors. As Southern Californians, the outdoors is available to us almost every single day, but summer does provoke a feeling all its own. One of the elements that makes summer summer is concerts in the park. The 20th Annual Summer Concert Series at Farnsworth Park in Altadena […]

Chorale Bel Canto: A Mystical Journey

Chorale Bel Canto: A Mystical Journey

The Chorale Bel Canto, a group we have enjoyed tremendously, present its season finale with “A Mystical Journey” on May 14.

Also on the program is Mozart’s Requiem, the traditional version as completed […]

Tall Men Backstage

Tall Men Backstage

With two CDs titled 12 x 6 and 2 Tall, can you guess what the group’s name may be? Tall Men Group. We know of said group because we know the wondrously creative and industrious Kim Ohanneson, co-founder of the Poetry and Whisky Salon and sometime contributor to Hometown Pasadena. Her husband, Marty Axelrod, plays […]

Cellar Sessions

Cellar Sessions

Pasadena’s own Old Oak Cellars winery welcomes the public down into its rather chilly wine cellar—”dress warmly; our wines like it cold!”—for Cellar Sessions. Old Oak Cellars, once again working with Brad Colerick, organizer of the popular Wine & Song night, will feature Ronny Cox and Jude Johnstone on April 10. William Phoenix wrote in his […]

Snowapple

Snowapple

As we listened to the instrumental introduction of “Businessmen” by SnowApple, our first impression was of Safaris’ “Wipe Out.” When the vocals began, we thought of 1940s and 50s club singers or chanson in Paris. Three voices in harmony with operatic notes and the music bold and sometimes discordant, the overall sound is folk-ish while […]
