I'm running around Friday night, aim the camcorder at some folks, annoying others and recording what I could before I hop the last bus out of Dodge, er I mean Pasadena. I walk thought the courtyard past expensive stores and cobblestones and dresses my body will never fit into.
I see the flags in the sky but I hear her voice. I start recording. I don't know who she is. I'm not sure if she was part of the ArtNight festival or hired by a local business to sing for the customers.

I didn't have my glasses on so I only know her name starts with V or Valencia or Valarina or something like that. There was a CD on the table but not cards or flyers. I couldn't read her name. She was singing around 8:30-9pm or so Friday night. She was good cuz I missed the dang blasted bus.
That was ok because there was a fire on Colorado and the was a bunch of fire engines. A story for another time. So if you know who she is let me know because I do want to spread the word on performers who can sing with their clothes on and can stand relatively still while doing so. I'll dig through my handouts but the pile is high.
October 16th Update: I found her name! It is Valencia Vas and I was listening to the Valencia Vas Trio. On her website you can check out more of her music or find out how to purchase her CD.
