Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 7/7-7/13

I started reading The Death Cure today. For those of you who don’t know, that’s the third book in The Maze Runner series. I read The Maze Runner based on a recommendation. I tend to like those dystopian novels. The Maze Runner was not my favorite, but I was invested enough in the characters to go to the end of the seemingly short tome. Then I reached the end and realized that it was not the end at all and that it was just book one in a three book trilogy! At this point, there was no turning back so I’ve spent the last few weeks existing in this treacherous universe where you constantly question the point of your own existence. I guess this is not really too far from graduate school, but I’ll be happy to finish off this book, hopefully get some closure, and move on.

Last week was fantastically show-heavy, highlighted by sets from White Sea, The Kin, Sean Watkins, and Semi Precious Weapons. I also discovered a few new artists to keep tabs on like LA’s Roméo Testa and San Digeo’s The Midnight Pine. This week will probably be show-lite for me, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of great things going on around town.
