Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 6/29-7/5

I realized today that I ended my month of June much like it began, with an Urth Caffe boba green tea followed directly by a set from Dark Waves.  That Make Music Pasadena set seems like a lifetime ago, but nope, that was June. After today’s set (at a street festival in Santa Monica), the Dark Waves EP was put on repeat for the rest of the day. Those songs just get in there and don’t let go!

Next weekend is July 4th! I hope you have some fun plans. My plan is to get a lot of work done this week so that I might be able to get to a BBQ or two. Although I will make an exception for Monday night where I hope to be playing the how many venues can you squeeze into one evening game.
