Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 12/14-12/20

This weekend I certainly felt the holiday spirit. Friday night got the ball rolling with the always fabulous HoHoHotel Cafe Holiday party where I saw a few favorites and discovered some great new talent (Freddie & Francine have moved to the top of my must see list). Saturday, after a full day of learning at The YouBloom LA Conference (bookmark this event for next year!), I drove down to San Diego to see Dear Boy’s debut at The Casbah and am now about to head to The Forum for night 2 of KROQ’s Almost Acoustic Christmas. To say it’s been a full and exciting weekend would be an understatement.

Next week, the holiday lull begins to set in so get out and see some shows while you can. Top pick for me would be Friday night at The Hotel Cafe with Anthony Beliveau (of The Crash Kings) and friends.
