Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 8/7-8/13

This week, I’m participating in the Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen (GISHWHES).  I’m in an amazing team with a diverse group of fun people and, so far (and it’s only been two days), it’s been a blast! Today, I ventured to a ghost town to prove the existence of ghosts…we shall see what tomorrow might bring.  But, on this note, if anyone has access to a storm trooper (or any Star Wars character) costume, clothing with a banana/s on it, or an inflatable couch, let me know!

Musically, we’ve got a lot going on this week, especially Wednesday, but if you want your life changed for the better, head to The Fonda Thursday night to catch Rag N Bone man.  Thank me later.
