Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar 6/23-6/29

Last Friday I actual took a day off *gasp* to head out to Pomona and go to Warped Tour. My full recap will be posted later this week, but it was a much needed (albeit overly hot) mini-vacation that left me musical re-charged and with an extreme craving for lemonade. Another musical highlight was my involvement with High Voltage Radio Hour where we chatted with our special guests from OK Go about their new video, time with the Muppets, and upcoming album. You can listen to that interview as well as our stellar musical selections here:

This week is your last chance to see French Style Furs (Cold War Kids + Barcelona) for their June residency at The Satellite. Monday night also features the wonderfully cutesy/quirky/folky Carsie Blanton at The Hotel Cafe, Danish singer Nabiha playing with White Sea and Until The Ribbon Breaks at Bootleg, and a stellar line-up of singer-songwriters at Room 5 for Monday Monday. All those shows are free so good luck choosing there…
