Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 10/5-10/11

Last week was near perfect musically-speaking. I saw some great acts for the first time (Evvy, Hollis Brown), caught a few favorites (Joe Pug, Keaton Simons, The Milk Carton Kids), and was taken back about a decade when I discovered Colin Smith (Mr. North, Colin Smith) has a new rock band called Hundred Hounds. Oh, and I hopped in a van with Jamie N Commons et al and headed to San Francisco to see them play (again) at The Fillmore, experiencing an amazing little slice of tour life (complete with multiple vehicle breakdowns).  I’m currently watching Mrs. Doubtfire in honor of my brief time in SF.

I’m not sure that can be topped, but this week we’ve got Dear Boy opening for The Maccabees, Badflower at The Viper Room, and one of my very favorite events, The Culture Collide Music Festival. I have yet to listen to all of the bands, many of whom are international artists, but you can bet by next weekend, I’ll have my list of acts worth checking out.
