Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 7/11-7/17

Taking a much needed break today to get in on a bit of MLB All-Star action.  The best in baseball are descending upon San Diego and although I won’t get to see the big game on Tuesday, I will get to check out The Futures Game which is followed by something you can’t see on TV, celebrity softball!

Musically, there is a lot of good stuff going on next week. The Valley Queen residency begins Monday night at The Bootleg, both Atlas Genius and BORNS are performing free shows and a couple festivals downtown add musical flavor to the weekend. My show pick of the week goes to a couple local bands, Weathers and The Wrecks playing a venue I have yet to visit, Union Nightclub, Tuesday night.
