Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 12/29-1/4

I hope everyone is enjoying their holidays. I have filled my music-void with episodes of The X-Files, meals with friends, puzzling, cats, and a few movies. I was largely disappointed by the films I saw in the theater so I’ve now watched Moulin Rouge twice to remind me of what a great film feels like. As a result, I’ve have the Moulin Rouge soundtrack stuck in my head for days. My head radio goes back and forth between those songs and the slowed down version of Sia’s “Chandelier” I heard when I caught up on Selfie (RIP).

People keep asking me about my plans for New Years…I’m just not quite sure yet. I’ve listed some musical options below along with the rest of my picks for the week. My first music list of 2015! I’m looking forward to this year and all the exciting musical adventures it is sure to bring.
