Don’t you hate it when this happens? There are two awesome music events this Saturday, June 3, in Pasadena, and now it’ll be up to you to decide which one to attend. Check these out:
- Music Under the Stars by the Pasadena Symphony and Pops
This is their annual free concert outside Pasadena City Hall. This year they will honor George Gershwin with favorites like Summertime, I Got Rhythm, and Someone to Watch Over Me. Resident POPS Conductor Larry Blank will welcome to the stage singers Christina Saffran, Valerie Perri, and Kiki Ebsen. The three of them, and the JPL Chorus, will dazzle you with their powerful and sultry voices. Pre-concert activities for the entire family will start at 6 pm. You are encouraged to bring a picnic, low-back chairs, and blankets. Food trucks will also be available. The concert will start at 8 pm.
- KCRW’s Summer Nights at One Colorado
This is a free live performance from Chico Mann & Captain Planet (two big names in the contemporary alternative Latin scene) of their new album Night Visions, which is a collection of stories that dance alive over an infectious blend of Afro-Latin rhythms and contemporary dancefloor beats. We’ve seen their show and can attest to the contagious music and colorful delivery that makes it impossible to remain still. The evening will also offer a DJ set from KCRW’s Marion Hodges. This evening will take place amidst the historic buildings at One Colorado in Old Pasadena, starting at 7:30 p.m. See kcrw.com/summernights for more information.
We don’t know how you’ll decide, because both of these shows are fantastic. We are certainly trying to make up our minds ourselves. But, how lucky are we in our beautiful town!? Whatever you do this Saturday, we wish you a wonderfully musical time!
