Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 11/17-11/23

This weekend I’m in the middle of an intense conference in Washington DC. I love conferences! I love the energy, the scheduling, the free food, exploring other cities, and seeing old friends. Plus, the exhaustion that comes with being around people for 12-15 hrs/day is so extreme is nearly erases all of life’s other problems.

Friday night, I was able to take some time to explore a part of the city that seems to have quite a few notable music venues. I found Black Cat and the 9:30 Club before settling in at U Street Music Hall where Lewis Watson was playing. I could write an essay comparing the vibe of the DC vs LA music scene, but I suppose I need more than a single data point on the DC end before I draw any real conclusions. Let’s just say, I quite miss LA.

I’ll be back next week just in time for a very crowded Thursday evening of musical options, but if I were in town all week, I wouldn’t miss Parade of Lights Tuesday night opening for X-Ambassadors at The Troubadour.
