I recently attended two noteworthy events. The first was the Unmasquerade Ball in Hollywood on October 23, which was a benefit for Love is Respect, an organization that promotes healthy relationships in young adults. The most fun part of this event for me was the photo area, where you could try on different costumes, silly hats and props, then take your own photo in a photo studio area. Then they printed out the photos moments later that you could keep. Really fun! Visit loveisrespect.org for more information, and to support this most worthy cause.
The second event I attended earlier on October 11 was another concert put on by one of my favorite groups, MUSE/IQUE. It was a free dance concert held in the Pasadena Civic Center Plaza. "MUSE/IQUE, known for its inspired, unexpected live music events, connects master artists with new voices across a limitless range of styles" (from their news release). I love this energy, so much fun and so original in the way they combine very different musical genres to create something unique and very enjoyable. For more information visit www.muse-ique.com.
