Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 8/3-8/9

Although not the original plan, I somehow ended up at The Palladium for the AWOLNATION show last night. As you might expect at any AWOL show, things got a bit crazy. My feet today are sore from all of the dancing. The real treat, however, was to see one of my favorite bands, Irontom, open up the show on such a big stage. I’m not sure how many times I’ve said it, but if you don’t know Irontom, you should really check them out. They will be going back on the road with AWOLNATION when that band returns from a little European tour.

Show pick this week goes to Nashville’s The Delta Saints who are playing The Mint on Tuesday along with Robert Jon & The Wreck and Roses and Cigarettes. Oh, and if anybody has an extra ticket to see Gary Lightbody at Largo on Saturday…
