Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 5/23-5/29

Posted on by .

I had a bucket list experience last week when I was able to go on a personalized tour of the studios at Capitol Records which I found to be a place full of friendly people and fascinating tales. I loved seeing the different recording spaces and learning a bit about the progression of sound engineering over the years. We were also treated to a performance by one of Capitol’s artists, SonReal.

This week is one I’ve been looking forward to for a while now. SXSW 2015 faves, Walking On Cars is FINALLY back in The States. Take a listen to the band’s debut album, Everything This Way, and I’m sure that will be enough to convince you to join me Tuesday night at The Bootleg.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 5/16-5/22

Posted on by .

Instead of thinking about last week with life chapter titles like “Major Life Setback #32”, “How To Fail at Everything” or “The Week My Computer went Red”, I think I’m going to choose “The Great Boba Discovery of Cypress” or maybe I’ll pick something that is a mix between the good and the bad like “Adventures with The Bestie: Bedbug Edition”.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 5/9-5/15

Posted on by .

Yesterday was Comic Book Day. I was going to make a brief appearance at my local shop to pick up some free comics and maybe meet Alan Tudyk, but before I knew it, I had spent half the day in the fair-like environment hobnobbing with artists, comic creators, and other fans.  After enjoying reading hour today with a stack of new comics, I have determined my new favorites to be Junior Braves of the Apocalypse and Finding Molly: An Adventure in Catsitting, the latter of which I just found out can be read as a web comic (yay!).

Now if you’re looking for a music recommendation, I would point you to the new Virginmarys album, Divides. I’ve been listening to this one in my car which is a bit of a hazard if you aim to stay in the speed limit, but definitely good for keeping one awake on the late night drive home from a show.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 5/2-5/8

Posted on by .

Aside from some choice and morale-saving shows, last week was very much a “no” week. Everywhere I went (or tried to go), I was met with some sort of resistance.  Even the Starbucks where I wanted to try the birthday cake Frappuccino…all out.  Towards the end, I stopped asking questions because I already knew what the answer would be. Hopefully this week will hold a more proportional amount of allowances and denials…and a phone that behaves a little less like an obstinate adolescent.

At least the music will always be there for me. Last week it was Korey Dane, Andrew Watt, a fabulous evening at YouTube Space LA, and the always magnificent Zane Carney.  Next week I’m looking forward to Rooney (and Wild Wild Horses) at Teregarm Ballroom. I’d also highly recommend Gin Wigmore at The El Rey.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 4/25-5/1

Posted on by .

This is the second weekend in a row that I’m writing from San Diego. This weekend was all about baseball. My team (The Cardinals) were in town so yesterday I was at the game. It was a close one until it wasn’t and The Cards ended up winning 11 to 2. One thing that occurred right as the game was transiting from nail-bitter to runaway was my face, front and center on the Jumbotron, as I’m waving like an idiot. I will either consider this one of the more mortifying moments of my life or the event that allowed the tide to turn and my team to win.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 4/11-4/17

Posted on by .

Well, baseball season is back! I’d say this is a good thing, but I’m feeling awfully tense in this moment as I watch my team mid-way through a tied game. The good news is that after finally receiving an important email yesterday, life feels like it is moving forward again. I am celebrating today by watching a few bands in I assume someone’s backyard as the event is entitled Backyard Sessions. Thankfully, the rain clouds seem to have gone away.

Next week, my schedule is so full that I’m having to write in really tiny handwriting on my calendar (yes, I still have an actual paper calendar).  If there is one item that should be bolded, highlighted, and circled for emphasis, it is a show Friday night at The Slidebar in Fullerton where The Silent Comedy make their triumphant return to Southern California after a successful European run.
