Two of our favorite things: books and food. More precisely, cookbooks and the products of such. Altadena Public Library has launched a new kind of book club: “From Page to Table,” a potluck for those who love to browse or scour all sorts of cookbooks—and then race home to start cooking. If your cookbook collection […]

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 […]

Six Characters in Search of an Author

Six Characters in Search of an Author

“This season is themed ‘breaking and entering’,” states A Noise Within co-director Geoff Elliott. “And if there is any one play that of the six from the fall and the spring that so totally fits and falls right into that theme, it would be Six Characters in Search of an Author because these are characters […]

Carnegie Observatories 2016 Lecture Series

Our friend Vicki Laidig informed us of a lecture series that is, in her opinion, out of this world—the Carnegie Observatories annual spring lecture series—which is free, open to the public, and begins on April 4.

Bette, Babs & Beyonce

The Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles “just wants to have fun with divine divas” as such its spring concert will feature works by The Divine Miss ‘M’ Bette Midler, Barbra Streisand, and Beyonce. But let’s not keep our options limited! How about all the other divas of divineness? Stepping back to the likes of […]

Antaeus: Close to Home

Antaeus: Close to Home

When it’s so close you can taste it. There are nine days to go to help Antaeus Theatre Group find a new home. More accurately, this acclaimed theatrical company has found a home at 110 East Broadway in Glendale—the lease is signed the plans have been approved—it’s just trying to pay for it. Most often […]

City of Gold

City of Gold

I first met Laura Gabbert when she was in need of a professional headshot. Headshots were my bread and butter at the time, so an agreement was made. The next inquiry was in regard to family photos. Family photos was an area in which I wanted to branch, so I ignored my hesitation and took […]
