The Eclectic Festival

 —  —

Mission Tile West, 853 Mission St., South Pasadena

I will be playing a set with a full band for the Eclectic Festival at Mission Tile West-my band: Scott Babcock on drums, Matt Bunsen on bass and Ed Tree on electric guitar.

The Eclectic Music Festival & Arts Crawl is a celebration of the arts and a chance for folks to enjoy a Saturday in South Pasadena. The Eclectic, now in its 13th year, is organized and produced by the South Pasadena Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with DeepMix Entertainment and the City of South Pasadena. Started in a parking lot with a couple of local bands and a few dozen attendees, the Eclectic has grown into a signature event for the city, featuring dozens of diverse, local and regional musical acts, one-of-a-kind artisans and makers, interactive activities, open galleries, beer and wine gardens, and family-friendly fun.

This year’s event on Saturday, April 29th; 3-10pm will feature musicians on stages and intimate venues all across town. The Artisans’ Alley is a curated outdoor marketplace featuring unique, handmade, and vintage items, bringing together makers of handcrafted jewelry, clothing, accessories, art, home goods, and specialty items. Also in this area will be interactive art activities, food trucks, photo ops, music, and more. South Pas Vintage Village, 2023, will again bring an eclectic array of vintage sellers to South Pasadena. Over 20 local businesses are participating with special activities inside or out front of their stores.
