Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 11/30-12/6

Now that’s it’s officially the Christmas season, I’ve started working more fervently on my end of year music mix. Based on yesterday, however, I’m worried I won’t have enough time to get it done. I was debating which Dark Waves song I wanted to include and then ended up listening to my Dark Waves EP on repeat all day…and never quite reached a conclusion on song choice.

This week, a surprising number of bands are giving us options by playing multiple days. The Dandy Warhols, Gary Clark Jr., Amiee Mann and Ted Leo, and Johnnyswimm are all playing two or three times! How considerate! My show pick, however, will go to Thursday night at The Troubadour. Three stellar bands including one of my favorites from SXSW, Hamish Anderson.  This guy knows how to play a guitar!
