Make Music Pasadena returns June 1, and Amoeba is proud to be a sponsor of the event. We’ll be on hand with music for sale, and we’ll be giving away swag at the Amoeba booth (near the Old Pasadena Indie Rock Stage, on Colorado Blvd. near Raymond Ave.) as well as at the LA Weekly booth on the other side of the event. Stop by to pick up a free fan — it’s hot in Pasadena.

Make Music Pasadena is hailed as the West Coast’s largest free music event. There will be more than 150 bands, including electro-pop bands Yacht and Tanlines; indie-EDM star Robert DeLong; L.A. indie pop band Hunter Hunted; indie rock stalwarts We Are Scientists; world-folk band Taken By Trees (which features Victoria Bergsman of Concretes/“Young Folks” fame); local dream-pop acts Superhumanoids and Haunted Summer; afro-Mexican folk band Las Cafeteras; KCRW’s DJ Valida; experimental pop duo High Places; and more.
The show runs from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. It’s all-ages, with a suggested donation of $5. I’d also encourage people to take the Metro there — the Gold Line stops right by the festival, you can avoid parking (though there will be public and private lots available) and you can show your Metro pass or Metro Rail ticket at the Tampico truck at the Old Pasadena stage for a free 20 oz. Tampico bev. Remember, it’s probably gonna be hot!
