Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 3/18-3/23

Let the SXSW recovery begin! Although, I’m not sure if by “recovery” I mean getting some sleep and return to a more normal routine or if I mean go out to shows every night to hold on to the SXSW magic for as long as possible. Like Amanda said, many of the bands we enjoyed at SXSW are in town this week. My top pick would be Hozier at The Hotel Cafe as he is someone I just didn’t quite make it to see in Austin. However, if you want to hang out and hear all my SXSW stories (and there are some good ones), come to Harvard & Stone Thursday night for The Silent Comedy!

Tuesday: Crobot at The Satellite (9pm)
