Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 6/24-6/30

Posted on by .

I’ve been reading a lot of books lately and I’m being
reminded why this is not always the best idea. I love music because every song
offers a little 3-5 minute escape into another world. A good book, on the other
hand, can get me lost for days or weeks at a time. Then it’s like I’m
straddling two worlds, the one that I’m in and the one from the book that my
mind holds onto even when I’m not staring at the page. Sadly, as much as I want
to return to a vampire-filled Elizabethan London, a magic circus in Victorian
London, and a small town on the coast of Maine (okay, I’m in the middle of
three different books), I have work to do! I had the pleasure of going to
Warped Tour last Thursday as a videographer and this footage will not edit
itself (pictures to come soon!).

Speaking of Warped, one of my favorite bands from that day,
The Material, is playing The Roxy next Sunday. That, and of course the last
night of Queen Caveat’s Monday night Satellite residency are the shows I’m most
looking forward to next week.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 4/1-4/7

Posted on by .

Happy Easter! After a long and tiring week, it is really nice to relax and celebrate. When I moved to Los Angeles 5 years ago, one of the things I knew I would miss would be sharing these big holidays with my family, but I’m pretty sure that first year celebrating Easter in LA was when I realized what a great new family I had made here. And in the subsequent years this gathering has become my yearly reminder of how many wonderful and inspiring people I have since met and claimed as my own. I’m pretty sure this year is our largest gathering yet. I mean, the leg of lamb my roommate brought home yesterday…well, I wasn’t even sure it would fit in the oven!

I hope to extend my celebratory mood into the week with the help of some excellent shows. I think the two I’m most looking forward to are the amazing string of acts at The Hotel Cafe Wednesday and Sunday nights. People often ask me what my favorite venue in LA is and I have to say The Hotel Cafe because there is no other venue that can so consistently put together solid lineups from front to back. As much as I venue hop, sometimes it’s nice to see a bunch of your favorites all in one place…

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 12/10-12/16

Posted on by .

It’s been an interesting week. Mostly because I haven’t been able to talk now for nearly seven solid days. It really makes you appreciate how valuable one’s voice truly is. This isn’t the first time this has happened. I lost my voice the day my best friend got married and I had to croak out a Maid of Honor speech. I lost my voice in the middle of my teaching a course. Now, I lose my voice when I’ve been given the opportunity to interview the lead singer of my favorite band. You know, I wonder if there is a pattern emerging here…

Anyway, vocal problems aside, I got to see Biffy Clyro last week so life isn’t even remotely close to being bad. I was also treated to KROQ’s Acoustic Xmas last night which meant I got to see some heavy hitters like Garbage, Bush, and Linkin Park as well as personal favorites like Youngblood Hawke, Gaslight Anthem, and The Lumineers. There was also a Gwen Stefani/Gavin Rossdale duet which felt pretty darn special.

Speaking of holiday shindigs, The High Voltage Holiday party is this Tuesday at Silverlake Lounge. We’ve got some great bands, copies of our newest issue, and everyone who comes through the door gets a gift! I’d love to see you all there J
