Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 8/8-8/14

One of my favorite obsessions, The Olympic Games are here! We’re only a couple days in, but I’ve already enjoyed some cycling, archery, beach volleyball, swimming, gymnastics, water polo, volleyball, rugby, and fencing. I sadly do not have access to basketball, soccer, tennis, or equestrian sports (one of my favorites), but perhaps it’s for the best as I do still have a life to maintain.  I was extremely pleased to find yesterday that watching sports on TV went hand in hand with formatting manuscripts. I’m celebrating my productivity today with a trip down to Hermosa to see Brett Dennen…finally!

Next week brings to LA a few exciting shows, but none quite as anticipated as Lincoln Durham who plays The Hotel Cafe Friday night.
