Last Chance: Pasadena's Leavitt Pavilion Concerts
One of summertime's best bargains, the free concerts at Pasadena's Leavitt Pavilion, ends this Sunday. And actually this Sunday marks the only ticketed event of the summer, a fundraiser featuring Brian McKnight, with proceeds going directly to Leavitt Pavilion.
Here's what's still on tap:
Thursday, Aug. 25: BMI Summer Nights Presents TOY SELECTAH & Master Blaster Sound System (8 p.m.)
"Toy Selectah presents a whole new hybrid by mixing Mexican sounds capes with contemporary urban riddims and electro cumbia. Joined by Master Blaster's flesh sound and beats for a new generation of cross-pollinated youth."
Friday, Aug. 26: JESSICA FICHOT (8 p.m.)
"Ms. Fichot Takes us on a twisting journey out of the French chanson tradition into the lands of gypsy jazz, Chinese and Latin American Folk."
Sunday, Aug. 28: BRIAN MCKNIGHT (7:30 p.m.)
"Help support our free summer concerts by purchasing a ticket to our benefit concert."
Bring the family, and a picnic too.
