Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 2/2-2/8

I’m feeling very grateful this week for living in LA. There aren’t many places where you can sit outside and work all day long. It’s quite pleasant until you get locked out of the house because you didn’t think to take your keys to sit in the backyard. Then, suddenly, it just feels cold.

On the music front, I’ve been obsessively listening to Badflower’s “The Jester”, Brandi Carlile’s “The Eye”, Paul Keen’s “Pick Another Part” and Tony Lucca’s entire self-titled album. Tony’s album release party last week featured an appearance from Keaton Simons who is playing three shows this week on Friday, including a double set at my newly discovered downtown club, Mrs Fish. My other show pick this week is Wednesday night at Harvard & Stone where The Active Set will be celebrating their EP release.
