Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 6/9-6/15

I’m about to head out the door to get to The Hotel Cafe to check out acoustic duo, Penny & Sparrow. I’ve been listening to their album, Struggle Pretty, and I’ve high hopes for this live experience. There are several artists in town this week whose records I’ve been obsessed with, but who I’ve never seen live. On the top of that list is British singer-songwriter, James Bay playing twice this week at Bardot and The Hotel Cafe. We also have Seattle’s HARPS and Levi Weaver whose album, Your Ghost Keeps Finding Me is one of my favorite releases this year.

And that’s just the beginning! This is truly a great week for music discovery so get out there and fall in love with something new. Here are the rest of my recommendations:
