Talk about a great local "secret"! I'm all about the idea of an organization taking over an unconventional facility to create a one-time unique experience. Avon's Warehouse turned into a stage with a huge screen to watch the documentary, "Girls in the Band", which features women jazz players pioneering what is still predominantly a men's industry. And afterwards some of the women from the documentary performed. I am only a casual fan, getting my feet wet in the genre, but I can't imagine how anyone left without being a fan of jazz. As the facility host of the event, we all walked away with Avon freebies afterwards as well.
This was cultural learning experience, and would make a great date for anyone gay or straight. The audience trends to older white folks, and you definitely want to dress a little more business casual, but with Goldstar's rate, it was very affordable. And the audience was progressive minded, boo'ing and aww'ing at all the right moments on behalf of women/minority rights.
A very grassroots operation feel, which I love, The organizer Muse/ique puts on multiple events a season through a series called Uncorked, which features different genres of music all in the Pasadena/LA area. I'm definitely keeping my out for the future ones. They'll also have a summer series, which I imagine is like CalPhil or Pasadena Pops with an intimate feel to it.
