Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 4/7-4/13

Watching The Spectacular Now…again. I was at Best Buy for something else and realized I had money on a gift card so I splurged on one of my favorite films from last year. I’m currently watching with the director’s commentary which I always find insightful. It’s just such an honest movie. The characters are unexpected, but real. More movies like this, please!

As for music, we’ve got some good choices for you this week. Mosco Rosco (formally Harper Blynn) start their Monday night residency at The Satellite. I’m very interested in what their new sound is going to be.  However, show pick of the week goes to a young Brit, Nina Nesbitt who is playing an early show at Bootleg on Thursday. Nina was one of my favorites from SXSW. Her voice is just so compelling in its effortlessness.
