Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 3/7-3/13

T-minus one week until leaving for SXSW (aka the best week of my year).  I go back and forth between being incredibly excited and incredibly overwhelmed…with not much in between. My schedule is coming along nicely. It’s mostly full of new and potentially exciting bands to investigate, but there are a few known favorites sprinkled in there to help give me perspective. I hope to make some time this week to put together my top ten list of anticipated acts, so keep an eye out on the site for that.

This week is going to be a busy one. I have critical meetings, lots of writing, a mini retreat, and so much trip planning all on the docket. I also hope to make a show or two (or three or four). Here are my favored options:
