We're missing all the fun, music and art that would have been happening today at the 12th Annual Eclectic Music Festival & Arts Crawl. Stay safe everyone, we can't wait to see everyone!

03/12/2020

*Update: Eclectic Preview Party*

Unfortunately, it has become evident that the 2020 Eclectic Music Festival and Arts Crawl will need to be 'at least' postponed. We will also have to postpone the Preview Party – it makes little sense to continue with the party without any idea of how things will go forward. Needless to say, this has been a very difficult and agonizing decision, one that we postponed making as long as possible.

We will not try to guess on when we might be able to reschedule. Once things "settle down", we'll reevaluate our options and make further decisions.

This Sunday! We're keeping the Eclectic Free.

Dustbowl Revival is an Americana and Soul band with eight full-time members who mash the sounds of New Orleans funk, bluegrass, soul, pre-war blues, and roots music, into a genre-hopping, time-bending dance party that coaxes new fire out of familiar coal. The band was founded in 2008 in the bohemian enclave of Venice Beach, California.

The Eclectic - Music Festival & Arts Crawl returns for its eleventh year on Saturday, April 27 with Grammy-nominated Gin Blossoms headlining the Eclectic Stage. Their fusion of melodic rock, pop, folk and country elements has helped pave the way for the modern Rock of today.

Gin Blossoms hits have crossed over in five different formats, taking the airwaves by siege, and held the MTV playlist captive for most of the 90s. Boasting record sales of over 10 million, the band continues to burn up the road performing over 120 tour dates per year.

This would have been the 12th year in a row for The South Pasadena Transit Authority. Very sad to be missing today, but glad the decision was made to keep everyone safe. For people discovering this page and wondering what all the fuss is about, here's a couple of songs from our set in 2018. We were one of about 50 bands that year with Big Bad Voodoo Daddy as the headliner. We were honored to open the main stage. Hope you enjoy:
Young Stars Theatre representing South Pasadena Eclectic! We are all very excited to be a part of all the fun this year!
Just added Charlie Dworsky-Hickey to the lineup! He'll be opening the Fretted Frog Stage at 3pm. Here's a little preview for you.
Had a great set last night at Paladino's/Theory in Tarzana! The joint was jumpin'! Next stop on the "One (More) Night Only Tour", 4:15pm on the Main Stage to mark our 10th appearance at the South Pasadena Eclectic Music Festival. The best little festival in all of Los Angeles County. Kid friendly and it's all the music and art is free! Hope to see you there.
Lisa Haley & the Zydakats on the Gold Line Stage!
