Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 3/2-3/8

Last week was full of musical adventures. I heard new music from Dead Sara and Taylor Locke, discovered a great new band (San Francisco’s The Family Crest), and saw one of my favorites (Dear Boy). I also had the extreme pleasure of seeing The Matches, a band who went on hiatus years ago before I had the chance to see them live. That was an evening I will not soon forget. An added bonus was that most all of the events I attended last week were on the early side giving me more time for important things like sleeping and post-show hangs with friends.

There are more great show opportunities next week. If you’re really lucky, you scored a ticket to The Troubadour Tuesday night to see Brandi Carlile. I can’t stop listening to her new song, “The Eye”.
