Posted on by .

The good news is that I finally have a (semi) working computer again! Now I have a new computer, a new phone, and a new place to live. All the new-ness is taking some adjustment and I’m not running as efficiently as I am accustomed to. I’ve let so many things just slip past and I apologize to anyone whose email, phone call, or text I’ve neglected. I’m sure I’ll be up and running at full speed soon enough. In the meantime, I’m doing my best to keep on top of all the noteworthy musical events. Next week we’ve got some good ones. I’m particularly excited about the return of 1/3 of Leogun to Los Angeles.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 8/11-8/17

Posted on by .

With only 15 days left in my search, I finally found a new place to live in LA! I just signed the paper work and I’m currently shaking, either from the acceptance of such a big change or perhaps from the caffeine in the chai tea my new landlady made for me.

The stress of looking for a place to live was only mitigated last week by a few choice outings to The Hotel Cafe. That place really does wonders for my soul. I am hoping for some equally inspiring musical experiences this week. My show picks are a couple of local faves, Queen Caveat Monday at The Echoplex and Dear Boy Tuesday at The Troubadour. Also, if you happen to be in town Sunday you’d be a fool not to check out The Mimosa Series at The Federal Bar featuring Dan Wilson and Nicole Atkins.
