Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 6/2-6/8

I’ve been doing a lot of “career” work this week, bulking up the Linkedin, going on job sites to see what’s available, making lists of my skills, etc. I go back and forth between being excited and panicked, thinking I’ve accomplished a lot and wondering what I’ve done with my life. I actually got a headache this week which is a rare thing for me…it’s hard to stare into the future when it’s so fuzzy!

At least I have my short term music plan worked out. This week brings some exciting shows at The Hotel Cafe (Max Collins, Curtis Peoples, Penny & Sparrow, etc.). I’m also looking forward to seeing Chicago rockers Empires Monday night at Bardot.
