Eaton Canyon – Sunday, April 5th

nsp040509_002

Adam Arcuragi: Philadelphia songwriter Adam Arcuragi, from High Two Records, bears his soul in crafty and incredibly catchy folk tunes. He and his “fellas” will melt your heart with the sweetest harmonies.

Artichoke: Timothy Sellers sings brilliant little ditties about animals, science, and Highland Park. He’s often accompanied by fiddling, clapping, percussion, and of course himself on guitar and/or bass. I really can’t help but love this band (I’ve never even seen them live before, just click on the link to check out there myspace page. They’ll surely win you over too)

Eaton Canyon Park Information, Secrets, and Fun Facts!

DIRECTIONS:

Driving: Take the 210 towards Pasadena. Take exit 28, towards Sierra Madre Blvd/ Altadena Dr. (Merge onto Corson Street). Turn left onto Altadena Drive. Go about 1.7 miles and then turn right into the park (Veranada Ave.). Park. Follow the hiking directions.

Public Transit: Take the gold line to the “Sierra Madre Villa Station”. Get on the 264 bus (or the 32 Arts Bus) from bus bay 5 or 6 and take it NORTH (towards the mountains) to New York Drive. Get off the bus and continue walking on Altadena for another block or so. If you’re ambitious, forget the bus (maybe even forget the train) and just walk or bike! Those are the best types of public transit there are!

Hiking: Here’s the trick. Follow the main path that runs along the dry streambed. Keep the mountains in front of you and to the right. You can’t lose! The hike should take you about 15-20 minutes each way. There are many small paths that branch from the main path. Go ahead and take them if you’re feeling adventurous, just keep in mind two things: 1. Keep the dry streambed in site and the mountains in front of you and to the right; 2. If you stray from the main path and get lost, don’t blaim us!

This sign will catch your eye from Altadena Drive.  Turn here.

Whichever of the 2 main paths you take in the beginning, it doesn't matter, they converge.  Just make sure you go where Kevin is pointing.

Ok, the secret's out.  It's not a dry streambed afterall.  You might want to bring shoes you don't care too much about, unless you are a skilled boulder hopper!

Stay left at this fork.  (this will be easy if you remember to stay on the wider/main path, and keep the dry streambed in site.

Again, just keep on the main path.  Stay left at this little brown sign.

You'll pass this nice little shady spot.  Maybe you'd like to sit down and take a break?  Don't forget to drink some water.

Performers, go left.  Listeners, go right.  You'll meet back up pretty much right behind that tree.  Or underneath the tree if it gets too hot and we need shade.

This is the green room (or shade room) located just next to the natural stage.  If it gets too hot, we might move the show inside here.
