Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 2/20-2/26

Posted on by .

I’m pleased as punch to have a long weekend this weekend. I got an unexpected half day on Friday and was downright giddy to be able to go home and do laundry. I’m not sure when I reached the point in which finding time to do laundry was a luxury, but here we are.

Last week, I went to the twenty one pilots arena show. It brought me all the way back to 2013 when I saw the band and wrote a particularly enthusiastic email to Amanda that I ended throwing up on the site. I had forgotten about it until someone reminded me last week. I’m glad my random musical musings can be memorable! http://localmusicnation.net/2013/02/21/twenty-one-pilots-at-the-troubadour-22013/

This week I hope to drag myself out of the house for a show or two. I had a super busy week, or so it seemed. I did nap a lot and I spent a lot of it being sore after some really good workouts.

I have found something to love about the Super Bowl! While the game was going on, I was able to drive about town with next to no traffic.  I went to the Farmer’s Market and then took to my favorite beach where I went for a long walk, watched the sun set and caught up with my bestie who lives on the opposite coast (also uninterested in football-related antics).  The sound of the water crashing to the shore made it impossible to be unhappy.  Thank you, Super Bowl!

Lots of musical offerings next week to look forward to. I caught a little bit of Asaf Avidan last week at The Hotel Cafe and the room was electric. There are two more chances to see him this week before he heads to France. He tells a great story about singing like a dying cat!

Amanda’s SD Concert Calendar 1/30-2/5

I never thought I’d be someone who missed the rain, but after this wind we’ve had the past few days, I think I would rather have the rain again. At least the wind is helping things dry out, so I really shouldn’t complain. However, I have had a scratchy throat off and on so I’m not sure if I’m getting sick, have allergies, or am just dried out from the weather. The joys!

It’s a weird week for shows this week. This is SD at it’s best where it’s all on one day(s) and nada on others. Sigh.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 1/30-2/5

Saturday night at the punk rock show, Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls transformed a traditional mosh pit “wall of death” into a much needed wall of hugs. He spoke of the importance of being part of a community that extolled the values of tolerance, kindness, compassion, and consideration as he literally transformed something quite scary (I mean it’s called a wall of death!?!?) into a positive, bonding experience.  It was quite the evening full of singing and jumping and jazz hands, but the best part might have been the feeling of pride towards my community of musicians and music lovers that spans the globe.  Hugs all around!

As we venture into another week of the unknown, there are a few great show options to help pull us all through.
