Amanda’s SD Concert Calendar 8/18-8/24

Posted on by .

It’s back to school week for me. I mean, I know I already graduated and stuff but I feel like there is just still so much to learn! This semester I’m taking modern dance, astronomy, and art (I will learn how to draw!). I’m pretty excited. There’s another junior college with a lot more stuff closer to home but I was a little late applying so I think I’ll have to wait till next semester before I can take anything there. Oh well.

This week also includes my birthday. I have no grand plans because it’s on a Wednesday and honestly, once you hot a certain age, it’s not that big of a deal anymore. I guess I’ll be celebrating Friday at the track for the Silent Comedy, Transfer, Vokab Company show. Come say hi and give me a hug.

With only 15 days left in my search, I finally found a new place to live in LA! I just signed the paper work and I’m currently shaking, either from the acceptance of such a big change or perhaps from the caffeine in the chai tea my new landlady made for me.

The stress of looking for a place to live was only mitigated last week by a few choice outings to The Hotel Cafe. That place really does wonders for my soul. I am hoping for some equally inspiring musical experiences this week. My show picks are a couple of local faves, Queen Caveat Monday at The Echoplex and Dear Boy Tuesday at The Troubadour. Also, if you happen to be in town Sunday you’d be a fool not to check out The Mimosa Series at The Federal Bar featuring Dan Wilson and Nicole Atkins.

I just returned from a beautiful wedding up north in the Half Moon Bay area. The bride and I met several years ago doing a music video shoot for Nico Vega where we were both extras. The drive up and back in the span of two days was exhausting, but the wedding was lovely, the bride and groom happy, and I had fun on the dance floor with friends, old and new. Plus, you’ve got to love a wedding where one of the reception gifts is a mixed CD!!

As much as I don’t want to believe it, August is upon us. There are some great residencies this month including Zane Carney at The Hotel Cafe on Monday nights so plan ahead and figure out which week/s you can go.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 7/28-8/3

Posted on by .

Sorry for the delay in this week’s calendar. I was completely wiped out by my adventures at Comic Con this past week. One of the absolute highlights of my Con experience was interviewing a few music composers about their work in film and TV shows like Fargo and Hannibal. I had a blast getting into the psyche of the score composer. You can read my take on that (and other panels and press rooms) on the High Voltage website: http://iamhighvoltage.com/2014/07/25/behind-the-music-crime-death-and-resurrection/

Other quick Comic Con highlights were meeting so many amazing fans and new friends, getting to chat with creators and actors in new shows iZombie and Constantine, a signing with author Deborah Harkness, zip-lining through Gotham, panels from Arrow, Penny Dreadful, and The Big Bang Theory, everything Supernatural including meeting the cast and show runner, and nearly running into Orlando Bloom.
