Black berets were the headwear of choice as Altadena Heritage celebrated our boho past in the Boho Highbrow Weekend's kickoff cocktail party at the Mountain View Mausoleum tonight. Altadena Heritage's resident historian, Michele Zack, said that about 75 people had reserved places tonight, but as befits a bohemian event, lots of folks showed up at the last minute without notice!
And jazz trio (you can't see the violinist) the BOHOs entertained all the free spirits. An exhibition of art from the era will be on view all day Sunday, at at 4 PM, the Los Angeles Contemporary Ensemble will play music from the 1300's thru Philip Glass while authentic bohemian scientist/artist RIchard Davies will talk about the origins of "Concerts on the Crest" and historian Zack will talk about Altadena's history in the 1950's. Swingin', daddi-o!
