Anyone paralyzed with a triskaidekaphobic fixation -- fear of the number 13, including Friday the 13th -- is just gonna miss out. The rest of us will be having a delightful time at ArtNight Pasadena.

Okay, we can give you even more new words about all this. The specific fear of Friday the 13th is called "paraskevidekatriaphobia" or "friggatriskaidekaphobia." Honest and truly. We didn't make that up.

Seems like the rest of us would just have a fear of trying to spell any of those goofy words.

(A VERY full edition will be along shortly. But we wanted you to have time to plan to get to this event!)

6-10 pm Twice-annual "ARTNIGHT PASADENA" is FREE at museums, galleries, and music venues large and small throughout Pasadena; there are FREE shuttle buses to get you between/among all the venues and live performances. One place you can start is Pasadena City Hall - Courtyard

♪ The ACOUSTIC AMERICANA MUSIC GUIDE endeavors to bring you NEWS — and views of interest to artists everywhere — more specifically to musicians and the creative community and music makers and fans of acoustic and Folk-Americana music. That includes both traditional and innovative forms. From the deepest roots to today’s acoustic renaissance, that’s our beat. We provide a wealth of resources, including a HUGE catalog of acoustic-friendly venues (now undergoing a major update), and inside info on FESTIVALS and select performances in Southern California in venues from the monumentally large to the intimately small and cozy. We cover workshops, conferences, and other events for artists and folks in the music industry, and all kinds o’ things in the world of acoustic and Americana and accessible classical music. From washtub bass to musical spoons to oboe to viola to banjo to squeezebox, from Djangostyle to new-fangled-old-time string band music, from sweet Cajun fiddle to bluegrass and pre-bluegrass Appalachian mountain music to all the swamp water roots of the blues and the bright lights of where the music is headed now.
The Acoustic Americana Music Guide. Thanks for sittin' a spell. The porch'll be here anytime you come back from the road.
