Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar 5/18-5/24

Posted on by .

I’m in the midst of East Coast travels. I was in DC most of last week and today I took a bus to Philadelphia to meet up with my mom to celebrate her birthday. The restaurant she chose was close to several of my old favorite concert venues so we walked around and I touched base with places like the TLA and Tin Angel. Tomorrow, the only thing on my agenda is to eat my favorite sandwich. I was hoping to find a good Monday night show, but most cities don’t have happening Mondays like Los Angeles.

Speaking of, tomorrow in LA is jam packed with great show options. The music continues throughout the week. The Grammy Museum is hosting two of my faves, The Milk Carton Kids and Dead Sara. Those will both be amazing in very very different ways. Also, one of my High Voltage On The Rise picks, Prides, are at The Echo Wednesday night. They come all the way from Scotland, so you really shouldn’t miss that one.

I was watching a baseball game today through a Pittsburg channel and was absolutely thrilled when before the game came back they would cut to a brief music video clip of an artist coming to town to play. There were some larger bands, but also some smaller ones that I had not heard of.  Along with the song there would be a note about where and when the band was playing. What a brilliant way to advertise for your local music scene!

This week, I’m traveling once again. My adventures will take me to Washington DC where I will visit the NIH and present some research at a conference. I’m also making a list of potential shows (obviously) and I’m excited to visit another DC venue.

I’m looking forward to catching a couple of my favorite LA bands before I go. Irontom is opening up the evening at The Echo Monday night and Dead Sara has three shows this week. If you don’t have a ticket for one of the sold out Troubadour shows, be sure to find your way to Amoeba Records Monday night.

I’m taking off in a few short hours to fly to South Carolina for a wedding which, despite being held on May the 4th, will not be Star Wars themed. A missed opportunity if you ask me! I was also saddened to note that the Columbia/Charleston area is not exactly musically boppin’ on a Monday or Tuesday night. Thankfully, this is not the case in Los Angeles where those early week nights are actually my preferred nights for live music. This week certainly doesn’t disappoint with an assortment of excellent (and mostly free) shows Monday night as well as the can’t miss Dark Waves residency Tuesday night at Dirty Laundry. Enjoy for me why don’t you!

Posted on by .

I hope everyone had a successful and music-filled Record Store Day this weekend. I celebrated with not one, or two, but three shows from one of my very favorite bands, The Silent Comedy. They played acoustic record store sets Friday night in LA and Saturday afternoon in San Diego. Then Saturday night, the band came back in full rocking form at The Irenic in San Diego. They celebrated the 5 year anniversary of their album, Common Faults, by playing the entire album from front to back. It was a unique and very special occasion.  I am very glad I could be there as the band may not be playing again for a while.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 4/6-4/12

Posted on by .

I am finally home from a long but exciting weekend at WonderCon where I was working a small press booth for High Voltage. Highlights from the weekend include a sneak peak at Wayward Pines, The Orphan Black panel, my new boba-tastic t-shirt, meeting so many cool people, and having all sorts of fun with our High Voltage fill in the blank fandom buttons (mine said I was a fan of live music most of the weekend).  All I really want to do right now is go through all my WonderCon goodies, but it’s Sunday so I must spend some time preparing for the sadly cosplay-less week ahead.

Musically speaking, we’ve got some promising shows. I missed Elliott Brood at SXSW, so I’m hoping to catch them at The Satellite this week. Another can’t miss would be the Young Romans record release show Saturday night at The Hotel Cafe.
