Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 3/14-3/20

Excited to NOT be in LA this week. Instead, I’ll be in Austin for SXSW. I’ve spent the last month putting my extensive schedule together for next week in TX, but I’ve still got you covered if you’ll be in Los Angeles. I think the show I’m most upset about missing would be Ben Rector and Gavin James at The Fonda Thursday night. Also, my birthday is on Friday (YAY!) so do me a favor and celebrate by going to The Hotel Cafe to see Mount Holly. Consider that my birthday gift to you.

If you’d like to keep track of what Amanda and I are up to all week, be sure to check the site as we’ll be posting daily recaps. There are ton of artists I’m looking forward to checking out, but I did put together a top ten list:
