Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 12/31-1/6

Posted on by .

Happy New Year!! Whatever you end up doing to celebrate the transition into 2013, I hope you stay safe and have a blast. Once again I am foregoing my former tradition of staying in and watching Star Wars in favor of some live music. My concert of choice this year is Dirty Sweet at The Griffin in San Diego! A one-off reunion show from a band I love that hasn’t played in a couple of years. How can I refuse? I think more bands “on hiatus” should do this kind of thing.

Anyway, I’m really looking forward to so many shows coming in the New Year, starting with next week! I’m particularly excited about Thursday night at The Roxy with Lakes, The Active Set and Royal Teeth. I hope to see you all out at a show soon!

Here are my other top picks:

Monday: Vintage Trouble at The Roxy (8pm)
ALSO: Puddle of Mudd at Whiskey a Go Go (7pm)
ALSO: Petty Cash at Smoke (10pm)

 

Tuesday: Beachwood New Year’s Day FREE at The Piano Bar featuring Tripp Rezac and Foster Timms (9pm)

 

Weds: ?

 

Thursday: Lakes, The Active Set, and Royal Teeth at The Roxy (7:30)

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 12/3-12/9

Posted on by .

It has been quite a busy week/weekend. I managed to work at least three 12 hour days last week plus catch some great shows (pictures posted soon to LMN’s facebook page). This weekend, we got the Christmas tree up and trimmed with the help of some lovely elves. Next week has the potential to be epic (you see who’s playing Thursday night at The Satellite, right?), but I worry that this cold I woke up with a couple of days ago might put a damper on things. At the moment, I can’t see past Biffy Clyro, but I’m also looking forward to Friday night at Molly Malone’s with The Honey Trees and Lakes and Nashville’s Bonnie Bishop at The Mint on Saturday.

There are actually fantastic show opportunities every night this week. I hope you can make it out!

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 11/26-12/2

As the holiday party invitations start to come in, I’m reminded that it’s time to put my end of year music mix together. For those of you who don’t know, every year I make a mix of all the songs and artists that meant something to me over the year…they are usually accompanied by a story and pictures. I work on this all year round, but the hardest part is pulling it together at the end and finding the time to create and produce the final product (aka Christmas gifts!). For this year’s mix, I had the first “rough draft” done for a couple weeks ago and and I’ve since made a few tweaks, but I’m still not 100% happy with it. However, if my first party is in just a couple of weeks, I’ll need to start manufacturing soon! Or maybe I should just accept the fact that my Christmas gifts will be late…again.

And who knows, maybe there will be a show this month that will change my life and alter the mix entirely (December 6th early show at The Satellite, I’m looking at you!). There are plenty of promising options these week. Here are my picks:

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 11/19-11/25

Posted on by .

I can’t believe it’s Thanksgiving week. I wish I could be more excited about it, but since people tend to leave LA for the holidays, there aren’t as many show options. I’d like to say that I’ll be spending the extra time off working on my end of year mix and continuing to fill out my SXSW 2013 spreadsheet, but I will mostly likely be playing catch-up at work. I’m actually quite thankful for the opportunity to do this, so hopefully I’ll be able to make the most of it.

I’m also thankful for a couple notable returns to the scene this week. Josh Kelley back at The Hotel Cafe and Nico Vega returning to the stage after what seems like a very lengthy break. Unfortunately, The No Doubt show that Nico Vega is playing sold out before they were even put on the bill…but just knowing they are playing again makes me happy.

Here are the rest of my show suggestions this week:

 

Monday: A House for Lions, Irontom, The Record Company FREE at The Satellite (9pm)
ALSO: Belmont Lights, Hot Bodies in Motion, The New Limb at The Hotel Cafe (7,8,9)
ALSO: Rimpau and Drive He Said FREE at Silverlake Lounge (9,10)
ALSO: Monday in the Round at Room 5 featuring Trevor Menear, Griffin Young, Joel Eckels and Kristen Toedtman (9pm)

 

Tuesday: The Watkins Family Hour at Largo (9pm)
ALSO: a Tribute to ABBA FREE at The Satellite (9pm)
ALSO: Paul and the Kir at Molly Malone’s (9pm)
ALSO: Rachel Yamagata at The El Rey (9pm)
ALSO: The Postelles, Mayday Parade, and The Maine at House of Blues (7:30)

 

Weds: Keaton Simons and Nikki Leonti at WitZend (7pm)
ALSO: Josh Kelley at The Hotel Cafe (8pm)
ALSO: Half Moon Run at First Unitarian Church (7pm)

 

Thursday: Happy Thanksgiving!

 

Friday: Daniel Ellsworth & The Great Lakes FREE at TRiP (10pm)

 

Saturday: Nico Vega opening for No Doubt at Gibson Ampitheatre
ALSO: Viza at The Troubadour (11:10)

 

Sunday: New Found Glory at The Troubadour (9:45)

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 5/7-5/13

Posted on by .

I’m finally getting around to watching the 20/20 piece on Sunset Boulevard featuring Queen Caveat. I’ve already seen me rocking out at The Viper Room and front row at The Roxy.  The piece definitely doesn’t put one of my favorite places in LA in the brightest of lights, but I’m certainly craving some Rainbow fries and live music right now.

Not sure if this week will be the week I get out again, but my goodness, there are some amazing shows on the horizon.
