Eclectic Music Festival & Art Walk South Pasadena May 4, 2013

Saturday, May 4th, 2013, 2pm to 10pm. South Pasadena hosts a wide array of musicians at multiple live venues throughout town, along with an art walk, wine & beer gardens and shopping spree! Enjoy a Saturday evening in a wonderful, walkable downtown.

The Eclectic Music Festival & Art Walk emerged from the vibrant creative community in South Pasadena. The small town in the heart of LA captures the feeling of a bygone era with an intriguing mix of modern amenities from excellent bistros and cafes, art galleries and boutiques. Part of its appeal is accessibility from the Metro Gold Line – step off at Mission Station.

The South Pasadena Chamber of Commerce produced the first Eclectic Music Festival & Art Walk in 2009 with Stan Ridgway and a host of other amazing musicians. It emerged from the success of Downtown SouthPas LIVE! – a concert in a parking lot that awoke a sleepy town with all the energy and enthusiasm of an active arts community and a whole bunch of visitors from nearby.

More than 40 musicians on multiple stages. Galleries and special exhibitions. Food trucks, fine wine and craft-brewed beer. Enjoy walkable, wonderful South Pasadena’s historic business district as it comes alive with music and art.

Annual Unlimited PC Support with iYogi Tech Expert @iYogi

It really could be a lot painful when your computer starts to misbehave, especially when there is an important task to be completed. If you are addicted to surfing the net, you might have found yourself having so much pain for your inability to wind off especially after the day’s work.

My computer was really a pain in the ass. It was always painful whenever it robbed me of the kind of joy i should experience whenever i was having conversation with my friends.

I signed up to different forums hoping to find a lasting solution to the problem. I bought an antivirus and learned how to clean the PC registry, as i was directed by forum members, but nothing worked perfectly the way I wanted.

Eventually, someone from one of the forums I have being to, directed me to iYogi Annual Technical Support Service. I was skeptical at first about the price; even though i knew good things come at a price; i never wanted to spend $169.99 on a service or program that wouldn’t benefit me.

I contemplated for so long before giving in eventually to the decision of giving iYogi a try; after all, there was a money back guarantee. It would have been a great miss, if i had not given it a try.

My subscription to the annual technical support service for $169 was met with one-on-one consultation, aimed at configuring my antivirus software, monitor and protect my computer from hackers and malicious viruses, and removal of all kinds of security threats on my PC. There was also an instant access to expert technicians via the internet. iYogi gave me what i really wanted. This service really made me realise that the help i have been waiting for was just a phone call away.

Get Annual Unlimited PC Support with iYogi Tech expert just for $169.99, get started here.

We love technology and provide Great Tech Support to those who use it. We’re available 24×7 and we’re very good at what we do. Call US +1-877-769-5115.

Buy a belt feed a family. It is that simple. The mission belt is a high quality product that we love and lets us do what we love. We know you will love it too. Thanks for being part of The Mission!

The Mission Belt is an evolution in belt design, style and function. The belt is sleek and clean, and provides a perfect fit for everyone. With no holes to stretch or wear over time, your genuine leather belt always looks great. Not only is it the best belt ever manufactured, it’s comfortably priced as well. The tip of the belt inserts into the ratchet belt buckle, where a locking mechanism holds the belt in place from the back. To remove the belt, just press the small metal lever on the bottom of the buckle, and the belt slides out of the buckle. You’re no longer restricted to 1 inch size adjustments, but can get a perfect custom-fit every time. Not only will you look good, you’ll feel good too, because a DOLLAR from every Mission Belt sold goes to help hungry families worldwide become self-sufficient. It’s a hand up and not a handout. There is more than enough food for everyone, and you can check out many of our worthy Mission Belt funds recipients through our Kiva profile. Thanks for being a part of The Mission!

  • We try to use the least number of middlemen in our distribution channels so you get the best wine at the most affordable price
