Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 4/27-5/3

Feeling a tad overwhelmed, so I’m just going to cut to the chase. We’ve got some pretty great show opportunities this week, starting with Monday night at The Troubadour featuring Zane Carney. I’m particularly excited as this marks a reunion for 3/4th of one of my all-time favorite bands, Carney. I have a feeling this will be one for the books. For more info:

Tuesday night, I recommend heading to Hollywood where you can catch the last residency date from SPURS at The Hotel Cafe then head to The Study (formally Hemingway’s), The Piano Bar, and/or Dirty Laundry…all hosting great music for the very reasonable price of free.
