Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 10/14-10/20

I hope everyone was able to make it out to Culture Collide this past week. The energy at that festival is amazing. I was only able to go Friday night, but I packed in as much as I could. My favorite sets would have to go to The Silent Comedy (of course), Kid Karate, and Like Swimming but I have a list of bands now to look into a bit further.

As for next week, The Mint is the place to be with solid lineups both Wednesday and Saturday nights. Wednesday, I am beyond excited to finally see Nashville’s bluesy-rockers, The Delta Saints who have not been in LA since the release of their fantastic album, Death Letter Jubilee. Then on Saturday, Portland favorite, Rags & Ribbons are back in town with their mesmerizing piano rock.

This week also brings us the Max and The Moon residency at Bootleg (with Irontom!), UK’s punk rocker Frank Turner, and an art show that has free pancakes and bands like Kiven and Dear Boy.
