Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 5/20-6/6

I hope you’re enjoying the holiday weekend. Mine has been filled with unexpected but delightful (for the most part) activities including beach time, a rooftop adventure, and an improv comedy show. I even got to spend a little time with one of my favorite people this morning, a former roommate in town for the weekend.
