Cafe Bizou
Vanessa Jourdan for Indelible Ink at Cafe Bizou - 6:30pm
91 N. Raymond Avenue
Pasadena, CA 91103
Price: $15.00 plus $12.00 food/drink minimum

Indelible Ink is a Vanguard Performance Art Series that operates under the auspices of the Pasadena Arts Council’s EMERGE® program. Conceived by ink’s host, Monica Lee Copeland, the non-profit project delivers eleven new shows on the last Tuesday of each month (except December) at Café Bizou in Old Pasadena.

Indelible Ink showcases performance artists whose original work is avant garde: courageous, entertaining and thought-provoking. Whether its words, music, movement or a mélange of mediums, the artist communicates with one in such a way that your soul is indelibly marked. Café Bizou’s elegant décor and historic architecture provide an incredible back drop to the theatrical experience without a theater’s overhead. This means that ink can offer you extraordinary entertainment affordably and compensate our artists for their time and talent. With the spirit of inclusion, we select performers whose backgrounds and viewpoints reflect life in the Diaspora. ink rejoices in literature, art and the light it brings.

On the last Tuesday of each month (except December) Monica Lee Copeland lines-up five outstanding artists who make Café Bizou their stage. The show runs from 6:30 to 9:30pm with the segments detailed below. To discover which performers are headlining these segments in upcoming shows, check out our calendar.

Aliso Creek Inn
Fundraiser for Children in Nepal - 6:00pm
31106 Pacific Coast Highway
Laguna Beach, CA 92651
Price: $35.00

Please come out and support Mountain Child, a non-profit organization providing aid, education, and hope to disadvantaged children in the Himalayan mountains of Nepal.  The organization was founded by Jack Reid, the man who pastored the English speaking church I attended while in Korea called "The Nations".  Now he is pretty much full-time raising support for and heading up Mountain Child.  The need is so great, and the stories of what Mountain Child has already been able to accomplish - including building an orphanage and school, creating systems to supply water to remote areas where some people had never showered in their lives, and saving lives with medical supplies - are nothing short of awe inspiring.  But there is still SO much more to be done.  Please visit  to learn more about what has already happened there, and what still needs to be done.  

You can help by simply purchasing a ticket, coming to a beautiful resort in Laguna Beach, eating a lovely dinner, and listening to some amazing stories.  You'll also learn a lot about a fascinating part of the world from people who have been there.  This will be a fascinating and diverse group of attendees, as well, so it won't be boring!  And, of course, I will be performing the Mountain Child theme song, "Carry Hope", as well as playing background music with my band for your listening pleasure.  It will be an informative night, a heartbreaking night, and a hopeful one.  I hope to see some of you there!
