Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 6/1-6/7

Welcome to June! Now that summer is here, we are entering festival season.  Hooray! This weekend is Make Music Pasadena which is becoming one of my favorites. This year, I’m particularly excited about two things. The first being favorite bands like Sir Sly and Dark Waves. The second being the weather forecast which suggests it will not be too hot next weekend (my least favorite thing about summer festivals is the uncomfortable heat).

Another exciting feature of June is the Crash King residency at The Satellite. This is a can’t miss!
