Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 4/14-4/20

We’ve got some great out-of-country bands on the list this week. Birds of Tokyo (Australia), Mads Langer (Denmark), Heathers (Ireland),  and several UK artists (Sam Smith, Kate Nash, To Kill a King, The 1975)…all acts you might want to check out now because they are based overseas and might not be back for a while. Several of these shows are sold out or nearly so, so if you want to go, don’t wait to look into ticket options.

If you want to keep it more local, I would suggest Thursday night at the Slidebar in Fullerton or Friday night at The Hotel Cafe (see below for more details)
