Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 9/23-9/29

I am currently watching The Emmy’s and the Cardinal’s baseball game. Neither are going as well as I’d hoped, but I suppose there is still time. I’m a little overwhelmed by what this next week has in store for me, but like it or not, here we go! There are too many musical events I’d like to attend. I’m finally in town to catch some of this month’s residency shows, there are a few great lineups at The Hotel Cafe, and LA-band, Wicker, is coming together for a reunion show at The Roxy Wednesday night.
