Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 3/30-4/5

I tried a new boba establishment today. I went all the way to Little Tokyo to get it, but the brown sugar milk tea was top notch!  It was almost worth the ridiculous drive home fighting all the beach traffic. I guess this is what happens when LA decides to be ridiculously warm in March…sigh. I’m looking forward to next week when the weather (hopefully) cools down a bit. Next weekend is WonderCon in Anaheim. If you’re planning on being there, come visit The High Voltage small press booth. There will be some fun fill in the blank buttons!

As for music, my show pick of the week is Thursday  night at The Hotel Cafe for the Tim Jones record release show. Tim is a member of Truth & Salvage Co., one of my beloved LA bands (before they up and moved to Nashville). The special guest list looks includes Cary Brothers, Scott Kinnebrew, and Leslie Stevens. It’s going to be a great night!
