Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 2/24-3/2

The Olympics are ending. The two weeks had their share of triumphs and disappointments, but I’m going to miss watching Curling while eating breakfast, getting incomprehensibly invested in any kind of biathlon or cross-country event, and of course, everything figure skating/ice dancing, especially if it involved my new favorite duo of Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski.

Next up, Oscars week! I still am woefully behind on the nominated films, but I did manage to catch the animated and live action shorts this weekend, so I’m ready with my picks there.

As for music, this week is chock full of great options, but if I could do only one, it would be Thursday or Friday with Kodaline and LP.
