LAMA student and alumni bands will be providing entertainment during Shop Indie Day this Saturday, November 30 in Pasadena. More than 25 Playhouse District businesses are involved; this is a great day to hang in the community, listen to music and receive special discounts at all the stores. Those who visit six businesses are entered to win an iPad Air.
LAMA performances include Mary Ashley at 11am, Fernanda Alba at 1pm and BLOOM at Vroman’s at 3pm. Looking forward to seeing you Saturday!
This past Sunday, two LAMA bands played the Art + Design Open Market, a one-day event showcasing the art and talent from Pasadena’s leading cultural institutions including LAMA, Pasadena City College and Art Center College of Design.
LAMA musicians The Lorenzo Grassi Trio and Maracas provided music as people checked out one-of-a-kind photos, paintings, illustrations, ceramics and handmade apparel and jewelry lining the cobblestone alleys of One Colorado‘s historic property.
Since its launch in 2003, Art + Design Open Market has provided visibility for more than 1000 artists and has served as a go-to destination for countless art collectors and enthusiasts.
