What a wild and crazy week with GISHWHES in my life! The international scavenger hunt really pushed me out of my comfort zone, altered my perspective on what is possible, and renewed my affections for this amazing city I get to live in.  Since proving the existence of ghosts last weekend, I photographed moon fairies, gave life to a Garbage Patch Kid, apologized to Sweden, and attended a coleslaw party so wild that the cops were called.

I really intended to focus my time last week on the hunt, but I still managed to make it to a show…or two…okay, three!  Next week is Echo Park Rising (http://epr.la/).  I hope to see many of you there, especially Thursday night for The Diamond Light’s final (forever? for now?) show at The Lost Room.

Amanda’s SD Concert Calendar 8/7-8/13

Posted on by .

I’m still in NYC but only for one more day. It’s been an absolutely amazing time here with good friends, good food, and good musicals. If you ever get the chance to see The Great Comet, I highly encourage you to do so! I also went to a midnight film screening of 68 Kill starring Matthew Gray Gubler, who came and did a Q & A before the movie. That was a truly unique experience. We don’t get a lot of film screenings in San Diego, let alone with a Q & A from a star in the movie. I am looking forward to coming home though. As much fun as this has been, I miss my horse, my dog, and my gym friends.

Amanda’s SD Concert Calendar 7/31-8/6

Posted on by .

Well I had an interesting weekend. Well, it wasn’t all that interesting but more of a big reminder of what it’s like to be at a show where the core audience is under 21s. There were a few families with kids and one boy looked as young as 10. The majority were the screaming girls who know the words to every song. I went into the show only knowing their hit song from YouTube but I was happily surprised with the whole thing. However, there was an ill placed strobe light that was highly annoying because it was right in our eyes. I am very thankful that we had seats though because I’m not sure I could have hacked it otherwise.

This week, I’m heading off to New York for some Broadway, food, culture, and fun so from Wednesday on, please head out in my stead!

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 7/31-8/6

Posted on by .

I clearly took on too much this weekend. I cancelled half of my plans and still didn’t get my work done. I did check off two items on my LA bucket list today. 1) Go to the Staples Center (I know, I know) and 2) see a professional basketball game! 4th row back from the court watching the LA Sparks was quite thrilling. I didn’t realize the game would be such a party scene, however.  Why, may I ask, is there a DJ during a professional basketball game?  Regardless, I rather enjoyed watching the only sport I ever actually played.

Amanda’s SD Concert Calendar 7/24-7/30

Posted on by .

Comic Con is finally over. It was crazy madness. It was like being a petrie dish. It was like being a sardine and a cow (or sheep) at the same time. It was magical. Also, I made it out to the Creature show. I didn’t stay the whole night but I still made it out and that still counts. I’m hoping for not too much of a letdown because I have one week free before I’m off to New York to spend some quality times with some quality friends. But this week has some goodies in store to keep me going, if I can keep my eyes open.
