Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 1/18-1/24

Last week, music was my drug and I may have used it to excess. A few too many super late nights left me in a much desired sleep-deprived daze. This weekend I came down with a comedy taping, time with friends, and a light morning show at The Federal Bar where I could chair dance to Paper Pilots while eating a bagel.

This week, I’m looking forward to another round of SWIMM. It’s also your last chance to see Leo James Conroy at The Hotel Cafe.
