Pencil This In: Tiny Vaudeville Benefit, Singin' in the Rain
It's a robust Monday with interesting events around town:
The writing and literacy nonprofit 826LA presents “Tiny Vaudeville” tonight at 8 pm at the Echoplex. It’s the first night of a new monthly series -- a 90-minute show that features acts from live music, short films, stand-up and sketch comedy, novelty acts, lectures and slide shows. Tonight's show's hosted by Craig Cackowski and the Dan Bern Orchestra and features feats of prestidigitation by Derek Hughes, the music of Pop Levi and a super secret Celebrity Guest reading 826LA student work from Thanks and Have Fun Running the Country.
It's week one of dineLA Restaurant Week, where participating restaurants will serve specially priced three-course meals for lunch and/or dinner. The meals range anywhere in price from $16 to $44 per person, excluding beverages, tax and gratuity. So go out there and fill up your belly while stimulating the economy at the same time.
The South Pasadena Music Center and Conservancy hosts a New Music Monday concert series starting tonight. For $5 admission hear the musical stylings of Non Credo, an LA-based multi-instrumentalist duo Joseph Berardi and Kira Vollman, performing excerpts from their latest work, "Impropera" -- an improvised, improper imp opera. Other guests include pianist Motoko Honda and the Cat Hair Ensemble.
