Amanda’s SD Concert Calendar 8/31-9/6

Tonight I did the unthinkable and watched the VMAs. When I say “watched” what I mean to say is that I dvr’d the awards and ended up fast forwarding through most of the evening. I didn’t know who the majority of the people were at that event were be them performers or presenters and I’m totally okay with that. I’m going to go back into my little “underground” bubble now because I’ve had enough of this “pop culture” to last me awhile.

August is drawing to a close which means some really exciting events for me in September. First, I’ll be going to Riot Fest for the 10 year anniversary of Almost Here from The Academy Is… which is a band I credit with getting me off the Top 40 radio and exploring other musical possibilities. They haven’t performed together in 5 years so this is super exciting for me. Second is Kaaboo, which is a local permutation of Coachella at the Del Mar Fairgrounds with some super amazing acts, including a lot of LMN favs. Super stoked!

This week is also kind of slow on shows. Sad face.
