Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 9/21-9/27

Meg Myers’ debut full length album, Sorry, came out last week and I cannot stop listening. There were quite a few promising-sounding albums that dropped last week, but I have yet to get past this one. Actually, I’m kind of struggling to listen beyond the first two songs…

Speaking of powerful female singers, my show pick of the week (and it’s quite a full week) goes to Gin Wigmore who comes to The Troubadour on Thursday. The Troubadour plays host to a number of exciting acts this week…people must agree with me as most of the shows have sold out.

Next weekend, there are several festival options in the general LA area. Past precedent suggests heading over to The La Brea Tar Pits for Tarfest, a free music and art festival that features several up and coming musical acts. For more info:
