Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 2/17-2/23

This weekend has been full of excitement. Friday night’s Biffy Clyro show got a bit intense, but it was worth it to see my rocking Scots finally back in LA. I’ve also got a bit of Olympics fever. I’ve watched a little of everything, but that shoot-out from the Russia vs. US hockey game was probably the most thrilling. On top of all that, there are a couple of small dogs running around the apartment, providing an excellent excuse for long walks and rolling around on the floor.

I don’t have so much a show pick this week as I do a venue pick. The Hotel Cafe any night next week will hold at least one act that I absolutely adore. What do I have to do to get a week-long venue pass?
