Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 9/1-9/7

The good news is that I finally have a (semi) working computer again! Now I have a new computer, a new phone, and a new place to live. All the new-ness is taking some adjustment and I’m not running as efficiently as I am accustomed to. I’ve let so many things just slip past and I apologize to anyone whose email, phone call, or text I’ve neglected. I’m sure I’ll be up and running at full speed soon enough. In the meantime, I’m doing my best to keep on top of all the noteworthy musical events. Next week we’ve got some good ones. I’m particularly excited about the return of 1/3 of Leogun to Los Angeles. This trio is one of my fave UK acts and seeing singer Tommy Smith at The Viper Room on Thursday is a can’t miss in my book!

Here are the rest of my picks. I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday weekend!
