Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 6/6-6/12

SO much to report for next week, so I’ll just jump to that…

Firstly, one of my best concert buddies, Theresa will be in town. We have quite the agenda put together, but her trip revolves around an event she is working Thursday night with SPRAYGUN WAR (Buckcherry side project) who will be throwing an EP release party (check out Theresa’s snazzy press release:

Secondly, I know Saturday is a packed music day, but if you have the time, I’d recommend stopping by NoHo PAC 2-4pm to celebrate the official launch of the non-profit, Music Is Power.  LMN has been a longtime supporter of our friend Ashley and her efforts to combine her skills as a therapist and love of music to make a positive difference on the world and we are very excited to see her take this next step forward. Come see what it’s all about. There will be live music!

Finally, show pick of the week: I’m thrilled to get to Bardot Monday night and once again see Jamie N Commons. I have his new EP on repeat and cannot wait to dance and sing along with many friends to one of my favorites…
