Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 10/28-11/3

Writing this week from a pumpkin carving party. I think we got some good one’s this year. Someone even did a Yoda pumpkin! Now, stuffed on pizza and pumpkin seeds, I’m yawning a bit thinking of all the show possibilities for next week. Top picks go to a few Irishmen. Monday night Foy Vance and Rams’ Pocket Radio are at The Hotel Cafe along with local fave Jake Newton. I’m particularly excited about Rams’ Pocket Radio as I’ve been wanting to see this guy for over two years now. Then on Wednesday, SXSW faves Kodaline will be captivating the audience at The Troubadour along with Diane Birch.

It’s the last week in Rocktober and there are plenty of opportunities to rock. Don’t miss out! Also, if you’re looking for Halloween show recommendations, Harper Blynn at The Hotel Cafe. Definitely.
