Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 1/13-1/19

Taking a bit of a break today. I’ve been watching the Nationals Figure Skating competition and now I’ve switched over to The Golden Globes. It’s nice to pull myself out of my own life and live vicariously through the triumphs and failures of others for a while. Now, I just want to go ice skating and watch movies…

More greatness in music form coming to LA this week. My show pick of the week goes to Nashville’s Moon Taxi who was a SXSW favorite and High Voltage On the Rise artist last year. If you want a fun night of music and dancing come to The Troubadour on Thursday.
