I was reminded earlier today that the Golden Globes are tonight so I’ve stopped my Night Manager binge to tune in (gooooo Sing Street and Westworld!).  I’ve been a bit discombobulated this week as I’ve been overly focused on planning a last minute trip to Berlin (yes, you read that right…I’m going to Europe!).  I’ve also been driving all over town putting up posters and baseball cards to promote Zane Carney’s El Rey show on Jan. 26th. It’s been a really fun way to explore different parts of the city. Also, be sure to get your tickets to Zane Carney at The El Rey January 26th!

 

As far as this week goes, there are many shows to be excited about, but top on my list are Ray Little’s second show ever at The Echo with opener Aja Volkman (from Nico Vega!) and the second Coffee Shop Arena Rock night at The Hotel Cafe hosted by 80’s/90’s arena rock aficionado Curtis Peoples.

Happy 2017! I started my year with a walk/dance on the beach which I feel is particularly fitting as I’ve happily managed to find employment that will keep me in Los Angeles for the time being (woo hoo!).  This year is bound to come with some changes, but I hope to continue going to shows and keeping you all up to date on my favorite local music happenings. For my reflections on 2016, check out my 2016 Music Mix.

I’d say 2017 is musically off to a slower start, but this could just be because many venues are slacking with posting their January calendars.  I’ll do my best to update throughout the week, but here’s what I’ve got right now:

I’ve kept myself properly busy this month, successfully avoiding the bulk of the Christmastime gloom. Last week included a trip to SD with shows at The Casbah and Lestat’s and then a few holiday parties in LA including one at The Hotel Cafe where John Mayer made a surprise appearance.  One simply cannot be upset with life when one is present for a jam session including John Mayer, Zane Carney, and David Ryan Harris.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 12/12-12/18

Posted on by .

Mid-way through a very full week of shows, I was at The Hotel Cafe to check out LA-based singer, Adam Friedman (one to watch!).  Afterwards, I wandered into the other room to see Sleeping Wolf (always a treat).  I commented to Amanda that after my Hotel Cafe experience I felt refreshed. She said she didn’t realize a band could be refreshing, but that is exactly how I felt. Is that weird?  Maybe it was just a particularly good week, but with each new musical act I sampled last week, I got more and more excited. It wasn’t until I finally took a night off that I had trouble sleeping and life started to feel overwhelming again.

Next week, similar to last, starts off with a Monday that has way too many bands I want to see playing on the same evening.  This trend continues throughout the week, but if there is one show above all that I’d recommend it would be the Hotel Cafe holiday show which is always one of my favorite events of the year.

Here’s what else I’d suggest looking into:

ALSO: Hunnypot Live FREE at The Mint (7pm)

Last week was a blur of music and French fries ending with a lovely birthday party at a park where there were cupcakes, live music, balloon animals, some coloring with markers…okay, the party was ostensibly for a 2 year old and the live music involved a few creative rounds of “Wheels on the Bus”, but I was given ginger beer which made me feel like the party was for me too!
