Help the PMCA celebrate and support California musicians!
On June 1st, we're partnering with California's largest FREE music festival—for the first time AND as the only participating museum in Pasadena—to further promote California culture. Reaching beyond the visual arts to include music, we will showcase local bands at our venue from 12–5pm, offer discounted museum admission, and have food trucks and a beer garden available.
The PMCA needs your help! We recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to cover day-of rentals and services, including the stage and sound equipment. We've reached 21% of our $2,000 project goal, with 20 days to go. Please consider making a contribution and spreading the word—thank you in advance for supporting the arts and our community!

I live for adventure! I've been in rock bands, movies, plays and on TV. I adore animals, motorcycles get my heart racing and I also have a passion for sushi and ice cream (not at the same time). I was the Queen of the 31st Occasional Pasadena Doo Dah Parade. I am also a professional belly dancer (swords are my speciality), a Polynesian/Tahitian dance student and a full-time journalist. Here, I'll share some of my life- who I meet and where I go in the music scene, as well as music news, and any other intriguing people, places and things I come across. **PLEASE NOTE: Here I will also post excerpts from press releases I receive with information on upcoming entertainment events and news.** Welcome and keep on rockin'!
