Mexico 68 Afrobeat Orchestra at The Eclectic. Saturday, April 28, 2018. Free live music and an art gallery and studio crawl in walkable, wonderful South Pasadena, California.

The Eclectic Music Festival & Art Walk emerged from the vibrant creative community in South Pasadena.

It emerged from the success of Downtown SouthPas LIVE! – a concert in a parking lot that awoke a sleepy town with all the energy and enthusiasm of an active arts community and a whole bunch of visitors from nearby. Now in our sixth year, we’re proud to have featured many noted performers, including Chris Hillman, Billy Childs, Quetzal, David Lindley, The Young Dubliners, Don Preston, Mark Isham, String Theory and hundreds of others, many of whom hail from South
