Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 5/2-5/8

Aside from some choice and morale-saving shows, last week was very much a “no” week. Everywhere I went (or tried to go), I was met with some sort of resistance.  Even the Starbucks where I wanted to try the birthday cake Frappuccino…all out.  Towards the end, I stopped asking questions because I already knew what the answer would be. Hopefully this week will hold a more proportional amount of allowances and denials…and a phone that behaves a little less like an obstinate adolescent.

At least the music will always be there for me. Last week it was Korey Dane, Andrew Watt, a fabulous evening at YouTube Space LA, and the always magnificent Zane Carney.  Next week I’m looking forward to Rooney (and Wild Wild Horses) at Teregarm Ballroom. I’d also highly recommend Gin Wigmore at The El Rey.
