To anyone who missed the Glendale Pops Orchestra's free Bossa Nova concert this past Thursday night at the Americana at Brand, I can only say one thing: Your loss! OK, maybe one more thing: Are you crazy?! The Glendale Pops, led by its talented and charismatic conductor Matt Catingub, continues to astound with its top-notch musical performances and talented guest stars. This time the Pops was joined by Sergio Mendes' rhythm section (!) and the Brazilian singer Teka. As someone who regularly attends live music throughout Los Angeles, I can say with confidence that you will not see a more talented, dynamic group of musicians at any venue in Southern California - not at the Hollywood Bowl, not at the Disney Concert Hall, nowhere.

The place to be to exercise and socialize is Disco Night on a Friday night at the Glendale Curves on West Kenneth Road. Last Friday evening’s Disco Night was no exception. Down came the daytime lights, up came the red and blue disco spotlights, pounding disco music and twirling disco ball. Owner Zovig Injejikian likes to have fun and makes sure her exercise patrons do, too. Glendale residents and Curves members Ritta Hovsepian , her niece Ashley Barsamian and Aida Kanchian let their hair down and discoed.
