The Black Tongued Bells, a band that derives its name from a line in the Dylan Thomas poem, I See the Boys of Summer, will give a performance today, Thursday, Sept. 5, from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., on the lawn facing the Community Room in Library Park at 1115 El Centro St. The band will play its trademark “American swamp music,” a blend of rock, blues, Motown, Cajun and Gospel that makes them sound like “The Rolling Stones if they were from Louisiana.” The South Pasadena Arts Council (SPARC), the South Pasadena Public Library, and the Friends of the South Pasadena Public Library are partnering to present the free event, which is SPARC’s Third Annual “End of Summer Concert.” Click here for further details.
