Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar 5/18-5/24

I’m in the midst of East Coast travels. I was in DC most of last week and today I took a bus to Philadelphia to meet up with my mom to celebrate her birthday. The restaurant she chose was close to several of my old favorite concert venues so we walked around and I touched base with places like the TLA and Tin Angel. Tomorrow, the only thing on my agenda is to eat my favorite sandwich. I was hoping to find a good Monday night show, but most cities don’t have happening Mondays like Los Angeles.

Speaking of, tomorrow in LA is jam packed with great show options. The music continues throughout the week. The Grammy Museum is hosting two of my faves, The Milk Carton Kids and Dead Sara. Those will both be amazing in very very different ways. Also, one of my High Voltage On The Rise picks, Prides, are at The Echo Wednesday night. They come all the way from Scotland, so you really shouldn’t miss that one.
