He took pictures of street signs to document the long-distance walks, and soon enough, had a pretty extensive collection of street sign photographs. "It just looked like it was worth something. So, I kept going." -Mistah Wilson

What is Pasadena Music Scene?

Browse   ///   Facebook   ///   YouTube    ///   Instagram

Pasadena Music Scene is tha official platform for Pasadena, CA-based local music, artists, and content. It was created along with tha Bringing It Together movement, a movement Mistah Wilson started to encourage local artists to take photos together demonstrating tha values of Love, Peace, & Unity. Through ThaWilsonBlock Network, Mistah Wilson had an idea for a unified local music scene. Because other publications around town wouldn't showcase local talent, Mistah Wilson created a way to do just that with tha Pasadena Music Scene Bi-Weekly newsletter which only saw a handful of volumes. Through that publication, Mistah Wilson was able to give cover issues to deserving local artists from tha Pasadena / Altadena region. Mistah Wilson then went on to intern at Pasadena Media where he would produce tha Pasadena Music Scene TV Show on his down time. Since then, Pasadena Music Scene has rescinded it's publications and has been reserved by Mistah Wilson as a pilot for his ultimate vision: A United Local Music Scene organization that is committed to artist development. 

The idea behind Pasadena Music Scene is that it's an institution that is to always be owned and operated by local artists, and not governed by a city entity. The philosophy behind this is artists knowing what they need more than accountants and policymakers would. And to keep tha future of artist development alive and well for generations to come. The Local Music Scene belongs to Local Artists.
