Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 8/17-8/23

This heat wave has proven to be quite the challenge. Today, I overcame simply by not being at home (rare for a Sunday).  I went to The Federal Bar for bagels and excellent music (Greg Holden and Ben Lee!), a birthday BBQ, and then a movie (The End of the Tour).  It wasn’t the typical day, but I am not complaining.
