Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 1/20-1/26

Last week I finally got to a show in 2014. Moon Taxi at The Troubadour. They made me dance. I am now excited about life again. I hope the fact that it took me 16 days to get to a show isn’t indicative of the year to come. Today I’m heading down to San Diego to see The Silent Comedy, Deadly Birds, and The Heavy Guilt at The Casbah, so that’s a good sign. A couple favorite bands at my favorite San Diego venue. I’m very thankful that Monday is a holiday.

As for the rest of the week, lots of great LA shows. Next Sunday is the last residency date for Austin’s SPEAK at Bootleg Bar. That would be my pick of the week, especially if you haven’t seen them this month already.
