Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 9/22-9/28

I’m still recovering from my SSMF experience Saturday. What an amazing festival! Actually last week in general was a memorable one as I was able to catch quite a few brilliant bands from local loves Queen Caveat and Irontom to out-of-towners like Augustines and empires, and even bigger names Bastille and Jane’s Addiction.

Next week, we have more wonderful show opportunities including a rare chance to see The Rescues in a round at Room 5 Monday night. Next weekend, another festival! This time it’s the Way Over Yonder Festival at The Santa Monica Pier. The fest, happening Friday and Saturday, includes headliners like Jackson Browne and Lucinda Williams and other LMN picks like Joe Pug, Nathaniel Rateliff, and Leslie Stevens. For more info:
