Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 6/12-6/19

I’m about to do something which I rarely do and that’s get in my car and drive somewhere on a Sunday, a day I usually reserve for mentally and physically preparing for the upcoming week. This whole week has been a bit off kilter (in a good way) so I suppose it’s only fitting.

Next week, I have some big work deadlines I’m dealing with, but I hope to get out to a few choice shows.  I’m especially looking forward to seeing Dark Waves on Tuesday. Show pick of the week, however, will have to be Friday night at The Hi Hat when my friends at Badass Bands Blog will be celebrating their 5 year anniversary with a great line up of bands and what I’m sure will be an awesome crowd of people.
