Arroyo Seco Weekend

Alright, so Pasadena is a bit of haul from Palm Springs, but it’s from Goldenvoice, the team behind Coachella and Stagecoach, and it has a nice roster of acts – Tom Petty, Weezer, Fitz and the Tantrums, and Mumford and Sons, anyone? – plus some good eats and the weather will be a hell of a lot nicer in Pasadena this weekend than in the desert.

The first annual event runs Saturday and Sunday next to the Rose Bowl and still has passes available – with one day tickets starting at $125.
