Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 4/21-4/27

I was not in a good mood last week due to some frustrating computer issues. The best way to turn my mood around is to spend an evening at my favorite music venue, The Hotel Cafe, so Friday night I ventured to Hollywood and spent 5 hours absorbed in the music and the people and I came out the other end feeling like a completely different person. It’s absolutely amazing how a good night can do that…

I’m hoping this week goes a little better. Show pick goes to Hunnypot Radio live Monday night at The Mint. One of my favorite bands, Rags & Ribbons will be down from Portland doing a live set.
