Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 5/25-5/31

This week’s email comes to you from rural MD. In the past week I went from Philadelphia, to upstate NY, to this little town in MD where I am helping my college roommate demo her Jane Austen-esque house (a spontaneous purchase).  Between the travel and more computer and internet issues I care to go into, this has been far from a typical week. I have been put to work babysitting, dog-walking, landscaping, pulling nails from wooden planks, etc. On the plus side, there has been a lot of amazing food and a couple trips to my favorite ice cream shop which almost make up for the manual labor…

I am very happy to report that I come home this week. I can’t wait to get back to LA and my nightly routine of going to concerts.
