Harriet Schock is bringing a special show to the Coffee Gallery Backstage. It illustrates how everyone is searching for the perfect lid to his or her pot. But when you think about it, your pot is not so perfect so why are you looking for a perfect lid? Shouldn't you be looking for a lid that has nicks and dings and dents that align with yours so that they don't clank and bang against your pot? The songs of Harriet's set will expand upon this premise in unimaginable ways. This is a brand new show for the Coffee Gallery Backstage, where Harriet recorded her highly acclaimed CD, "Harriet Schock Live - From Fairfax To Pasadena."

Three years after Los Angeles-based Gilmore Bank opened a branch office on Rinetti Lane in La Cañada Flintridge, it is moving to Foothill Boulevard at Angeles Crest Highway. The new location for the Gilmore branch was formerly the home the Flintridge Bookstore, which relocated in February of this year. The site is known for the 2009 runaway truck crash that killed two and ended with the truck smashing into the building's storefront. The bank's headquarters is on Fairfax Avenue, adjacent to the Los Angeles Farmer's Market, which is also owned by the Gilmore family.
