Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 9/26-10/2

Posted on by .

This weekend was agonizing in a Sophie’s Choice kind of way but I ended up going down to San Diego to spend a few days with Amanda and her adorable dog, Lucy.  Thursday night we were able to see the second show ever from the former Rags & Ribbons trio who now go by Arkivist. The harmonies are still there and they ended the set with an old favorite so I am happy to report that you need to go check them out.  Then last night was one of the more intense The Silent Comedy experiences I’ve had. It was impossible not to get swept up in all the feels and I’m pretty sure I sweated more from dancing to the music than the exercise classes Amanda took me to a few days prior.

Today, I’m heading back to LA to party with Highly Suspect (see recently published article here: http://iamhighvoltage.com/2016/09/22/on-the-rise-highly-suspect/).  But first, a quick stop at the Adam’s Street Fair to see Mrs. Henry and Creature and the Woods.  Tomorrow is my show pick of the week with The Wrecks, July Talk, and Nothing But Thieves at The El Rey.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 9/19-9/25

Posted on by .

It’s new TV season and today I’m giving Amazon’s Fleabag a go. Second episode started with a pretty amazing scene featuring an AWOLNATION song. This alone will get me to watch episode three. Olivia Colman also has a reoccurring roll and this might take me to episode four or five.  Oh, there is only six episodes…guess I’ll just watch them all then.

This week, I’m doing my best to re-enter the real world after an intense month or so of writing.  This most likely means a lot of cleaning, catching up with friends, and getting out for a few shows.  I’m particularly looking forward to Tar Fest on Saturday. It’s a free festival, always a good time, and this year the headliner is Dear Boy (need I say more).

I’m defending my PhD dissertation tomorrow.  This has been a loooong time coming (longer than the existence of Local Music Nation) and I’m struggling to condense my entire neuroscience research career into a tidy hour-long talk. If you happen to be free Monday afternoon and want to see a very different kind of show, let me know.

Hopefully the presentation will go well and next week I’ll be getting out to celebrate in the best way I can’t think of, with live music!  There are quite a few options for shows, but none will come close to the celebratory mood set by Judah & The Lion.

I made a great discovery today. If you take a cup of ice at The Coffee Bean, add whole milk and their vanilla powder, and mix intensely, you have a drink I will be calling essence of milkshake. As milkshakes are out of my price range at the moment, this makes me quite happy. I may have skipped…

My show list this week has quite a few names that bring up great memories and make me smile. As for my show pick, might I recommend Arkivist playing Friday night at The Satellite. Because I’m sure that name rings zero bells, I’ll mention that the trio of musicians used to be called Rags & Ribbons. I don’t really know what to expect from this new project, but I’m looking forward to finding out!

This email is brought to you with a view of the water in Summerland, CA.  This weekend I’ve been able to see dear friends, discover my new favorite gummies in the shape of sea creatures, renew my love of hiking and extreme hatred for the smell of brewing coffee, eat tacos, and watch the sun set over the ocean.  I opted out of some of the more Bacchus-inspired events of this bachelorette party weekend in order to sit in front of my computer and get some work done.  I’m taking a break from said work to put together my musical game-plan for next week.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 8/15-8/21

Posted on by .

The month of August is just flying by. It’s odd because I feel like I’ve spent most of the month sitting in front of my computer working. I guess time goes by faster when you aren’t having fun??  I did find enormous amounts of enjoyment today in watching golf on TV.  I think of the Olympic sports I’ve watched, golf might be my favorites this year. It’s certainly the only time I actually yelled out loud at the TV.

We’ve got several bands next week coming in from the east coast that I would highly suggest looking into.  Jimmy Gnecco and Mainland both come to The Hotel Cafe on Monday and Wyland play a couple shows at Silverlake Lounge and The Satellite. We’ve also got Echo Park Rising this weekend which was a great event last year. This year, Dear Boy plays Friday night and since I’ve been listening to their new EP nonstop, I’m particularly looking forward to that set.
