Friday just before dusk I was running an errand on South Lake Avenue, and I heard saxophone music. A musician was sitting by the Macy’s parking structure exit. He was good. I hope he comes back.

There was a large performance space with lots of cozy little tables, and there were separate bar, pool and patio areas where you could hear the music and watch it on screen, but where you could also move around and socialize more or enjoy a little more privacy.
Then we rode the free Art Night shuttle over to the Armory.
Local community ensemble Kan Zaman was there playing classical Arabic music.
You can hear samples of their music here: http://www.kanzaman.org/cds.htm
South Pasadena Music feels like a third place. It’s a great place to buy an instrument and to take lessons, but it’s more than a store. It feels good to be there. It feels kind of like a low key community hub. When I walked in this week, they had a copy of the South Pasadena Downtown Redevelopment Plan on the counter, and people (including me) looked at it and got into discussions about it. It felt like something out of a Ray Oldenburg book.
Kathy of Aphrodite in Jeans likes it there, too.
