AM, Meiko, Jesca Hoop & Everest @ Make Music Pasadena, 6/21/08
Part two of two.
As mentioned previously, on Saturday, Levitt Pavilions Free Music across America presented the inaugural edition of Make Music Pasadena (MySpace), with performances on six main stages and 24 other locations around the city.
The artists on the Emerging Artists Stage at One Colorado Courtyard, which was where last year's Pasadena Music Festival was held, included Princeton (MySpace), Adele Jacques (MySpace) with Antipop, DJ Antipop (MySpace) from Telepopmusik (MySpace), Stonehoney (MySpace), AM (MySpace), Meiko (MySpace), Jesca Hoop (MySpace), and Everest (MySpace).
For Dengue Fever and Everest, Saturday was the last time they'll be performing locally for awhile, with Dengue Fever departing for a European/American tour through September and Everest on a European tour through mid-July. So it was befitting that Dengue Fever appeased their hometown fans with an encore performance, much to the chagrin of the stage manager.
Special thanks to AM, Meiko, Jesca Hoop, Everest, and Make Music Pasadena.
