Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 4/13-4/19

While putting this week’s calendar together, I popped High Fidelity into the DVD player. I’d forgotten how much I enjoy that movie. Now I want to make all kinds of top five lists that will only hold for like 5 minutes. How about Top 5 Bands to see in LA this week. At this moment, my list would look like:

1 – The Silent Comedy

2 – The Milk Carton Kids

3 – Jakob Dylan

4 – Royal Blood

5 – Spurs (barely beating out Dark Waves but only because I haven’t seen Spurs before)
