Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 6/15-6/21

I’ve got the new Neon Trees song, “Songs I Can’t Listen To” running through my head on repeat. I was introduced to the song this week when I had the opportunity to see Neon Trees at the YouTube space in LA for a taping for What’s Trending. It was particularly cool because the set was basically CBGBs uprooted and transplanted into the YouTube studios.

Here’s the performance:

Show pick this week is Irontom Saturday night at Bootleg HiFi. Come join me in welcoming home the band from their stint on the road opening for AWOLNATION. Also, if you haven’t yet made it to a Crash Kings Monday at The Satellite, what are you waiting for?!?. Every week is a different set, so it is worth catching them all!
