A dapper bunch of men in fedoras and ladies in cocktail dresses swing danced at the La Crescenta Woman's Club Saturday night for a 1940s-themed fundraiser. "It was a very innocent and naïve time of life," said Dea McCrory, who graduated high school in 1947. "We were celebrating the end of the war and ladies went from plain dress to fancier." About 80 people came to "Copacabana at the Woman's Club" to celebrate the decade that saw World War II, the birth of rock and roll, the end of the Great Depression and Orson Welles' "Citizen Kane."

When swing revivalists Big Bad Voodoo Daddy formed in 1993, they were a severe anomaly, one that seemed destined to be overshadowed by the Nirvanas, Tupacs and Whitney Houstons who ruled the pop charts. Twenty years later, the brassy septet has outlived them and their appearance Saturday, Feb. 22, at the Alex Theater is going to be a very special triple-threat event . "We've kept the band together all these years and we have not stopped playing, been on the road the whole time," trumpeter and Glendale native Glen Marhevka said recently.

About 30 minutes into watching the Wednesday night dress rehearsal of “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street” at John Burroughs High School in Burbank, I had an unsettling realization. An hour prior, I had been at the mercy of sharp steel, having received a haircut less than a mile away. I shivered and touched my neck, taken in by Stephen Sondheim's over-the-top creepy score, music the play's vocal director Brendan Jennings described - rather aptly, I thought - as “early Tim Burton.” Fortunately, the woman who tames my somewhat unruly mop is not a maniacal, hate-filled murderer.

GLENDALE — Cathy Green has been feverishly cleaning her Spanish-style home in preparation for the dozens of people who will be walking through it today for Hoover High School’s 51st annual Tour of Homes. Green’s fingers were crossed that the event would turn out as planned because she said she spent her Friday making her home perfectly clean. “I am hoping it’s dark enough so they don’t see the piles of dust,” she said. Green will be allowing dozens of people, who purchased tickets for the tour, to walk the halls and rooms of her three-bedroom, one-story home, built in 1929.
