Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 4/25-5/1

This is the second weekend in a row that I’m writing from San Diego. This weekend was all about baseball. My team (The Cardinals) were in town so yesterday I was at the game. It was a close one until it wasn’t and The Cards ended up winning 11 to 2. One thing that occurred right as the game was transiting from nail-bitter to runaway was my face, front and center on the Jumbotron, as I’m waving like an idiot. I will either consider this one of the more mortifying moments of my life or the event that allowed the tide to turn and my team to win.

Back to the music, you’re really  missing out if you’re not at The El Rey on Friday to see Zane Carney.
