Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 10/12-10/18

This week’s concert calendar is brought to you by season 4 of The X-Files. After all of the hullabaloo over The X-Files reboot at Comic Con NY, I felt the urge to watch a few old episodes.  I am quite jealous over the people who got an advance preview, but am excited that the reviews are generally positive. Is it January yet?

There are too many great musical options in LA this week. If you can only go to one show, might I suggest UK’s A Silent Film at The Troubadour Saturday night. Their self-titled album is released this week. It’s a good one!
