Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 9/16-9/22

I’ve been out of town all week, visiting friends and family on the east coast. It’s been great but I’m exhausted. I haven’t really had access to the computer or internet so that’s been different. Yesterday, I was in Philadelphia. I ate my favorite sandwich, played with a menagerie of animals (cats, dogs, rabbits, turtle…), met up with so many of my old concert buddies, and saw three of my favorite bands. The impetus for the trip was a reunion show for the band Jealousy Curve, a group that changed my life back in college. Seeing them take the stage once again made me heart happy and oh so nostalgic as this band pretty much marked the epitome of certain time in my life.  An added bonus was that the band played with another Philly-fave, Silvertide. It was an epic rock show. And because sometimes life does work out in one’s favor, I was able to catch a pre-show performance from Alright, Junior, another band that is near and dear to my heart. Add in my Thursday night when I got to see two Pawnshop Roses play some old and new tunes, and I pretty much got a taste of all my favorite Philadelphia bands!

This AM, I woke up in pastoral Maryland. Due to the fact that I didn’t see a bed until after 5am, I’m a little foggy…we used to call it the concert hangover. I’ll be back in LA mid-week, but I haven’t yet put much thought into that. Still, I do what I can to help you all in your concert planning…here’s my list:
