Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 3/3-3/9

YAY Oscars! What a great ceremony. My favorite moment was Bette Midler sang “Wind Beneath My Wings”.  It’s been a weekend of Film ceremonies for me as I spent yesterday backstage at The Film Independent Spirit Awards which was quite thrilling, especially when stars from my favorite movies of the year, Before Midnight and The Spectacular Now, came into the room.

Next up: SXSW. I have one more week to get in all my RSVPs, finalize my schedule, listen to all the bands, and dig up my most comfortable walking shoes. Can’t be at SXSW? Come to the Aussie BBQ on Sunday at Bootleg! Many of the Aussie artists coming to Austin are making the pit stop in LA for this event.

My other show pick this week is The Ataris at The House of Blues. They are re-touring So Long, Astoria 10 years after its release. I saw them on that tour 10 years ago. It was my first experience in any kind of mosh pit, so let’s just say it was a memorable one. It would be crazy to see them again, same songs but completely different me.
