Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 6/27-7/3

When I’m not going out for music, I spend quite a bit (read: all) of my time in front of my computer. I worked overtime last week to get a couple papers off my desk so yesterday I decided I would take a day AFK so to speak.  I particularly enjoyed some computer-free time glued to a book I’ve been reading that, somewhat ironically, takes place in a world where people live most of their lives plugged into a virtual reality system.  I guess I never got too far away from living via technologies…I tried!

Next week’s musical highlights includes a couple UK faves, up and comers (and not to be missed) The Hunna and Leogun frontman Tommy Smith!
