Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 1/2-1/8

Happy 2012! I hope you all have been enjoying my end of year posts. I had a rockin’ New Year’s Eve last night at The Roxy with Semi Precious Weapons and friends. I’m very much looking forward to what the new year will bring. What life-changing shows will be attended. What new musical acts will be discovered. What fantastic journeys we will take. Maybe this will be the year I will follow one of my favorite bands around Europe…
