FREE L.A.: More on the Summer Concerts at Pasadena's Leavitt Pavilion
As we wrote last week, one of the best Summer deals in SoCal happens virtually every night at Pasadena's Levitt Pavilion, where free music and dance performances take place. Grab a picnic and watch from the lawn.
Wednesday nights are geared toward the kids, and last week Maria and the Blogger Preschooler headed over there to watch Bob Baker's Marionettes. A true living L.A. treasure, Baker (above) was there to perform, along with several proteges.
The kids were enthralled. And unlike the last time we caught the show, when Evan was just a baby, this time the puppets didn't freak him out.
Not every show is nearly as crowded, but parents and kids were out in force last week to catch a rare free show from Baker and his marionettes.
It's different shows each week. Here's what's on tap for this week:
Childrens Night (every Wednesday at 7): Aaron Nigel Smith and The FUNdamentals Band
Patchwork of America (every Thursday at 8): Delgado Brothers
World Rhythms (every Friday at 8): Emilie Simon
Jazz (every Sunday at 7): Barbara Morrison
