Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 12/5-12/11

Posted on by .

I barely survived last week. I can’t remember the last time I pushed my poor body so hard for so long. I can’t say it was a bad week because it was peppered by some amazing musical experiences, but it’s not a good sign when going to a show is a “break” rather than the end of your day. But it is weeks like these that make me most thankful for great live music and its ability to get me through just about anything.

Here’s to hoping this week can be fabulous without the severe sleep deprivation!  Musically, there is a lot of promise. Friday I’m going to wish I could be in 10 places at once.

New Music Tuesday 11/1/11 featuring The Silent Comedy

Posted on by .

Some very exciting albums released today from the likes of Florence + The Machine, Vanaprasta, The Decemberists, etc. and I certainly intend to listen to them all. However, there is one very special release today that you absolutely MUST check out and that is the new EP from The Silent Comedy. Cruelty & Clemency features some of my very favorite songs by my favorite San Diego-based band. Described as folk-rockers, The Silent Comedy wins over the hearts of everyone they play for and after a highly successful stint opening for Ryan Bingham and The Dead Horses, this number of hearts is growing quite rapidly. The boys are currently on their first east coast tour that sold out The Bowery Ballroom in NYC and got them some great buzz at CMJ.

Go listen to the new EP streaming on AOL, then download some The Silent Comedy tunes on Amazon or Itunes.

And be sure to check out The Silent Comedy tour dates and catch them in a town near you. They are back in LA November 14th at The Bootleg Theater.

 

Here’s a brand new video for “Gasoline”

 

Listen and Love!

That blank white page really is filling me with rage this week. My favorite Mumford & Sons tune will have to be performed without me in the audience tomorrow (Monday Oct. 18th) at The Palladium as I will be proctoring an exam that evening. It was quite painful to give away my ticket (purchased during the pre-sale mind you). But, as they say, life goes on…as does the music. With Joe Firstman tonight at the Hotel Cafe and a host of promising acts to fill the week, I’m sure I’ll get by ;).
