Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 9/1-9/7

Posted on by .

The good news is that I finally have a (semi) working computer again! Now I have a new computer, a new phone, and a new place to live. All the new-ness is taking some adjustment and I’m not running as efficiently as I am accustomed to. I’ve let so many things just slip past and I apologize to anyone whose email, phone call, or text I’ve neglected. I’m sure I’ll be up and running at full speed soon enough. In the meantime, I’m doing my best to keep on top of all the noteworthy musical events. Next week we’ve got some good ones. I’m particularly excited about the return of 1/3 of Leogun to Los Angeles. This trio is one of my fave UK acts and seeing singer Tommy Smith at The Viper Room on Friday is a can’t miss in my book!

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.
