MUSIC: The Michael Winograd Trio is playing tonight at 7 pm at the brand-new West Hollywood Library, 625 N. San Vicente Blvd. The group blends traditional Yiddish songs and new compositions with "chamber-like improvisations and spontaneous arrangements." For more information, visit Yiddishkayt's website.

ART: This weekend Pacific Standard Time is focusing its attention on the San Gabriel Valley. Today and tomorrow you can get $3 off of admission if you go to the Huntington Library and mention PST, and Pacific Asia Museum is offering 2-for-1 admission. At 12:30 pm today the Norton Simon Museum is offering an event called "Printmaking: Medium and Mastery," which will include a tour of the exhibition "Proof: The Rise of Printmaking in Southern California" and a look at other works by master printmakers Ed Ruscha, Richard Diebenkorn, David Hockney and Josef Albers. At the Pacific Asia Museum there will be a lecture given by guest curator Jay Bellioli "46 N. Los Robles: A History of the Pasadena Art Museum." For more information, visit Pacific Standard Time's website.

PERFORMANCE: Not only is it San Marino and Pasadena weekend for Pacific Standard Time Festival, it's also the Public and Performance Art Festival. Today in Pomona and Claremont, there will be a pyrotechnic performance inspired by Judy Chicago, a recreation of James Turrell’s 1971 flare performance and a re-staging of White’s 1971 performance with the Pomona College football team. In Los Angeles, Jason Brown, Machine Project’s "consigliere" will be giving an alternative history of Los Angeles, 1946-1981 at Machine Project in Echo Park.
