Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 2/29-3/6

I’ve done my research, but I have yet to fill out my official Oscar ballot. I don’t feel like there is a clear Best Picture winner this year which should make things a tad more exciting. I think I need to get a good walk in to finalize my selections before people come over.

In the meantime, planning for next week has me excited about seeing some new bands. We’ve got Rivvrs Tuesday night and Brothers and I on Saturday, two bands I’ve been listening to but have yet to see. And let’s not leave out The Wreks, who I had the pleasure of seeing open for Nothing But Thieves and are playing a free show downtown Monday night.
