Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 9/9-9/15

I’m leaving for the airport in a few short hours. I’m headed
to the east coast for a trip that will culminate in seeing one of my
Philadelphia bands, Jealousy Curve, play for the first time in three years. It’s
going to be fabulous! Whenever I leave, however, I feel like I miss out on way
too much. Next week, I’m missing the start of the Dear Boy residency and important
album release shows from Sonia Rao and Icarus Landing…to name just a few.
