Flamenco at Indelible Ink at Pop


Katerina Tomas and Esteban de Los Angeles were the flamenco part of the show at the always eclectic, always fun Indelible Ink show at Pop on Union Street in Old Pasadena this week. It’s always — barring December — the last Tuesday of the month, with showtime at 7: music, dance, performance art and the spoken word, conceived of by Pasadena’s poetry slam champ Monica Lee Copeland, who also headlined Tuesday night as a last minute replacement for the ailing Jack McCarthy.

Next month for the March 29 show, it’s yours truly in the poetry slot. Come on down. Info and tickets: www.indelibleink.net

Snow day


Sunday was one of those incredibly crisp winter mornings when, without thinking about it, you come around a corner expecting your typical view of the glorious San Gabriel mountains and … the view is most atypical. This is from Parkview Avenue on the west bank of the Arroyo Seco in Pasadena.
