Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 2/10-2/16

Last night’s Queen Caveat EP release event was nothing short of epic. I haven’t been to as many shows this year, but somehow I’ve managed to see a fair number of my favorite bands including Queen Caveat, The Silent Comedy, Moon Taxi, Imagine Dragons, Dear Boy, Truth & Salvage Co. (if you count their Tuesday evening online gatherings) and Irontom. Speaking of favorites, this week’s schedule really packs them in. My show list reads a bit like a list of my top artists of 2013.  We’ve got Irish brothers Hudson Taylor (lead off track of my 2013 mix), my dream combo of Irontom and Meg Myers, Augustines (their new album is worth the wait), Sir Sly, and Biffy Clyro (!!!) making their first LA appearance in over a year.  Too many options, really.
