Taste of South Lake, A Free Music And Food Festival Next Saturday


‘Taste of South Lake’ is back this year with an awesome lineup. On October 8th, San Gabriel Valley’s Largest Culinary Festival will offer great entertainment from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m, and you will be able to enjoy culinary delights from over 25 South Lake Avenue restaurants, live cooking demos with famed chefs such as Luisa Fabbri, owner of Contessa, Ronald Russell, the renowned vegan and raw food chef, as well as vegan Chef Yvonne Ardestani, creator of “My Eclectic Kitchen” cookbook and app. There will also be an interactive vendor village, beer, wine and cocktail garden and music performances from internationally known and emerging bands while KCRW’s DJ Raul Campos will be spinning throughout the day between sets.

The musical part of the festival will start with fusion musical collective The Nick Valentini Collective, who has been dubbed as the ‘Jazz fusion Radiohead’, then Los Angeles’s very own psych pop artist James Supercave will grace the stage, followed by American Rock band The Shelters. I had the pleasure to see both acts before, and James Supercave is a must see as he reminds me a lot of things packed together in the same tracks. If you have never listened to him, just try ‘Better Strange’ or ‘Burn’, it’s catchy as hell. As for the Shelters, their debut EP was produced by Tom Petty himself, so that should be enough to convince you, and you will be foot tapping to Rebel Heart for days. Mid afternoon, MTV VMA award nominees, Chairlift will perform their upbeat mix of indie pop/electro and finally, Australian alternative rock band, Atlas Genius, whose debut album ‘When It Was Now’ peaked at No.34 on the US Billboard 200, is headlining the festival at 5pm, and for having seen Atlas Genius twice, I can assure you should expect a high energy show.

Presented by the South Lake Business Association and co-sponsored by Corporate Center Pasadena, Taste of South Lake celebrates food and music, which always are an excellent combination, and since the festival is completely free and offers free parking at Corporate Center Pasadena, there is absolutely no excuse to miss it next Saturday.
