Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 2/26-3/3

Life has been a bit overwhelming lately and it was recently pointed out to me that I hadn’t taken a day off this year, so I did my best this weekend to not put any pressure on myself to do…anything. Having 9 hours of Spring Training baseball to watch certainly helped in this endeavor.

I hope to jump back into the fray tomorrow, motivated by a mid-week treat in the form of UK artists, Freya Ridings and Benedict Cork, playing The Hotel Cafe Wednesday night. Freya and her livestreams were a staple of my pandemic times and this week is the first of her residency shows while she is in LA. Benedict grabbed my attention and quickly stole my heart when I saw him open for Tors in London last year.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 2/12-2/18

Listening to Morgxn’s new album, Beacon, after his glorious return to Los Angeles at the Hotel Cafe Saturday night.

Amanda’s SD Concert Calendar 2/5-2/11

Apologies for the Monday drop instead of the usual Sunday one but I’ve had a raging headache off and on this past weekend and have been incredibly tired too. Partially due to this weather with the barometer changes, partially due to clenching my jaw one night, partially due to poorly timed naps, partially from not drinking enough water, and partially due to putting my retainers in so I couldn’t clench my jaw. Well, you get the idea… But better late than never folks, so here we are!
