Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 6/30-7/6

Summer is in full swing. Last week was Warped Tour, today was a baseball game, next week is 4th of July. I am quite excited about the 98.8 block party which has a great line-up with headliners, Semi Precious Weapons. If you’re going, be sure to go early enough to catch Brick + Motor. I sampled them at SXSW and look forward to catching an entire set from the up-and-comers from New Jersey.

This week gets a little show-lite around the holiday, but there is still plenty of great musical opportunities. Don’t miss out!
