For 20 minutes on Friday night, friends and supporters of the La Cañada High School Marching Band were treated to a near-flawless display of on-field synchronicity as the Spartan band presented its final performance before a major competition and the annual winter concert. The band performed its 2012 field show, “Mechanize,” and then headed off to the Western Bands Assn. Championships in Fresno. The band, directed by Jason Stone, practiced in a Central Valley vineyard before facing 4A marching bands from around the state and finishing in the top 15. Led by drum major Charlie Getzen, the Spartans kicked off the season on Oct. 13 with a first-place finish at a competition at Laguna Hills High School.

Ana Bazikyan rolled a stroller below a canopy of redwood and birch trees at Descanso Gardens' Japanese Garden Tea House on Monday afternoon and listened the often fast-paced Latin jazz of Incendio as the last hours of summer slipped away. Bazikyan said the fiery music left her happy. “This music is right for the garden,” Bazikyan said. The concert was part of Descanso's end-of-summer bash, named Boddy's Big Backyard after Descanso Garden's founding family. Many of the nearly 300 people who paid $8 each to attend munched on hamburgers and hot dogs, sipped on soda and cheered the spicy sounds.

Back in 1972 when Neil Diamond performed and recorded his Hot August Night album, I was a “wannabe” attendee. I've been regretting all these years that I wasn't there. I'm happy to report that 40 years later, on Aug. 23, I finally made it to the reprise of his Hot August Night concert at the famed Greek Theater. Wow! It was so worth the wait because it was the best concert I have ever attended. The man is amazing. At the age of 72 he performed for more than two hours without a break.

Hallelujah, on Wednesday morning I awoke to a cool and refreshing beginning to the day. At last the oppressive heat wave we had been experiencing had broken. I know that our hot days are only at bay for a little while, but what a delight it was to feel natural cool air. I even did a little happy dance in front of the thermostat when I saw that it registered only 70 degrees. This was one of life's little pleasures. See? I'm not hard to please. Speaking of weather and such, even though a week ago Saturday was one of those stifling hot days, the olive grove outside Beckman Auditorium on the Caltech campus was a remarkably pleasant and shaded place to be when Muse/ique began its second concert of the season.
