Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 2/15-2/21

Watching a documentary about the history of sound. It just touched on how an accident with a vacuum tube basically created the rock and roll guitar noise. This is a nice break in a weekend that has consisted largely of playing airplanes with a three year old (read: I’m exhausted!). I was happy to take the long weekend to visit friends in Kansas City, MO where it’s a good 60 degrees colder than LA when I left.  We had lunch today at a cafe where they played Saint Motel so I don’t feel too far from home.

Once again, we’ve got a week full of amazing show opportunities. Monday night is the final night of The Cordovas in Los Angeles. If you haven’t gotten to see them yet, here’s your chance.
