Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 3/28-4/3

This week I transitioned from SXSW into WonderCon where I walked amongst an interesting array of Deadpools, Disney characters, and superhero bunny rabbits (Happy Easter!). There are definite differences when it comes to interviewing musicians versus actors so it was an interesting change of pace. I guess my big takeaways from the convention are 1) I’m very much looking forward to the new show on SyFy, Wynonna Earp (the music in the first two episodes is on point!), 2) actors are generally on the short side and when they are tall, sometimes they will  awkwardly position themselves during interviews to be on your level (thanks, Chris Gorham!), and 3) always RSVP yes to parties that involve free bowling!

Thinking back to a week ago, a few of my top SXSW acts are in town this week. Lukas Graham (the establisher of my SXSW “Graham Bar” has two shows, sadly both sold out).  Wednesday night at Club Bahia is going to be a general re-play of my SXSW with another top pick, Banners along with three other great acts who were also in Austin. Finally, AudioDamn! is opening for a SXSW 2015 fave, Highly Suspect at The Troubadour Sunday night. It’s going to be a great week for music. Seriously.
