Happy Easter (my favorite holiday)! I’ve spent the weekend puppy-sitting which adds even more joy to the holiday.  The incredibly soft bundle of cuteness with the foxlike ears and Tigger bounce called Samosa is helping to reduce my frustrations over having to work over the weekend on a last-minute presentation.  Today also marks the day that I can re-introduce boba (aka happiness) back into my life.  I am now accepting boba dates!

I’m in San Diego this weekend spending time with some friends and horses. Saturday was Record Store Day and we celebrated at Vinyl Junkies with Creature and the Woods and a poetry reading from the new book by Noah C Lekas called Saturday Night Sage.  I’d highly recommend the book, but, as with most of my media, I don’t think it could get any better than in live performance.

Show-wise, we have some tasty options this week including several Monday night residency bands I’d like to check out and a charity event Thursday night where New Zealand musicians (including Gin Wigmore!) will take the stage to raise funds those impacted by the terrorist attacks in Christchurch.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 4/8-4/14

This week, I made it out 6/7 nights for shows, all of which got high marks. I guess you could say that my April is off to a good start! Between this week and last, I’ve got over half the rainbow of wristbands riding up my arm from the El Rey alone. In addition to the music, inspired by watching the pilot episode of A Discovery of Witches TV series at WonderCon, I’ve plunged into a re-read of the book series upon which the television show is based.  It is very rare to find a character whose life I connect with so well, but the historian/academic central protagonist is written into a world in which I feel instantly familiar…even with the witches, vampires, and daemons….

While I hope to get in more reading this week, the call of the live show is strong.  I’m particularly eyeing Tuesday night which holds quite a list of musical options including Ben Rector who is headlining at The Theatre at Ace Hotel.  This really is blowing my mind as it feels like it was just yesterday that Ben’s early set at The Hotel Cafe started one of the grandest of my grand musical adventures.

Here’s the full list:

ALSO: J.S. Ondara at Moroccan Lounge (7:30)
ALSO: The Beta Machine FREE at Amoeba Records (6pm)
ALSO: Livingmore, Oddnesse, Dream Phases, Liv Slingerland at The Echo (8pm)
ALSO: Ten Fe at The Troubadour (8pm)
