Welcome to Louche Angeles
I am a native Angeleno. I grew up in Pasadena in the 70s and 80s. I’ve seen this city change in a variety of ways. The most compelling change is its transformation from a louche backwater into a dazzling metropolis. I miss those days when the town was a shaggy underdog. It had a sleazy, anything-goes attitude that I thought I’d participate in when I grew up.
This blog celebrates the world of my youth in the Seventies in all of its hedonistic glory.
