Culture Collide was wonderful, but it left me exhausted. I had a blast sampling all the international bands and some international foods.

Culture Collide is coming! This festival, based in the Echo Park area and with an emphasis on international bands, is one of my favorites. It’s always a good vibe and I usually walk away with a new band or two to add to my “must see” list. I have yet to listen to all of the bands, but SXSW pick We Met Tomorrow are playing several sets and I hope to make all of them! For more information on who’s playing, set times, locations, and ticket sales: http://www.culturecollide.com/festivals/losangeles/

Otherwise, we’ve got another great week of music ahead. Zane Carney continues his must-see residency at The Hotel Cafe, UK buzz band, Catfish and The Bottlemen hit the Echo before going back home to a string of sold out shows, and, speaking of sold out shows, Hozier is in town.

This week, I found myself at a most thrilling baseball game. It was Cardinals/Dodgers and although I have nothing against The Dodgers, The Cardinals are my team and this particular game ended in my team’s favor. I went to the game with someone who knows a lot more about sports than I do and we had an interesting conversation comparing and contrasting the athletic industry with the music industry. One observation discussed was that in sports, the most talented players tend to actually get to the top, whereas the most talented musicians often remain in obscurity while lesser quality players rise due to other, qualities like personality, marketing, connections, etc.

Something to think about…

In other news, Rocktober is in full swing. This week, it brings us favorites like Carbon Leaf, Rags & Ribbons, Anberlin’s last LA show ever, and a High Voltage Halloween party.

I’m still recovering from my SSMF experience Saturday. What an amazing festival!

This time it’s the Way Over Yonder Festival at The Santa Monica Pier.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 9/15-9/21

Posted on by .

Coming back to the land of the healthy, I spent a lovely weekend re-connecting with San Diego for San Diego Music Thing. It was a great time for discovering new music, seeing favorite bands, hanging with friends, eating tacos, and generally reminding myself of how great the San Diego music community can be.

Next weekend it’s LA’s turn to shine as the music lovers descend upon the Sunset Strip for the annual Sunset Strip Music Festival. For more info on the event: http://ssmf.com/. It’s going to be a good one!
