Warm weather, classic cars, and local rockers Misplaced Priorities brought out hundreds of locals to Music in the Park this past Sunday. The free concert series had an added bonus this week, featuring a classic car show. “Oh man, I just love these old cars,” said Jim Gibbons of Pasadena, pointing at a 1967 Cobra Mustang. “They just don’t make them like that anymore!” Some came for the cars, while others came for the music. Misplaced Priorities is a classic rock band from La Cañada, featuring Mandy Boesche, Jeanne Nortao, Frank Dvoracek, Steve Stathatos, Rich Myers, Craig Windsor and Tom Reynolds.

They look like a band, but they look like a band that would play music much younger than they do. The five sunglass-sporting 20-year-olds that make up The Heist play strictly classic rock, nothing newer, and they play it well. As lead guitarist Brendan McGrath said, ?We?re up and coming early to mid 20-year-olds and loving playing music that?s about 40 years older than us.? The cover band, which took their name from the fact that they ?steal songs,? McGrath said, will be playing Saturday, Aug. 9, at the 47th annual Watermelon Festival in Sunland Park, 8651 Foothill Blvd.

On Friday evening, the sound of classic rock music echoed through the playground at Palm Crest Elementary School. Children played, swinging glowing neon bracelets as their parents socialized nearby, enjoying conversation and picnic dinners. The families that gathered at the school had a very good reason to party. It was the kickoff of the school's 50th birthday, and the annual Back To School Barbecue. Palm Crest opened its doors to 217 students on Oct. 9, 1956. The school currently has 555 students enrolled.
