Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 9/5-9/11

I made a great discovery today. If you take a cup of ice at The Coffee Bean, add whole milk and their vanilla powder, and mix intensely, you have a drink I will be calling essence of milkshake. As milkshakes are out of my price range at the moment, this makes me quite happy. I may have skipped…

My show list this week has quite a few names that bring up great memories and make me smile. As for my show pick, might I recommend Arkivist playing Friday night at The Satellite. Because I’m sure that name rings zero bells, I’ll mention that the trio of musicians used to be called Rags & Ribbons. I don’t really know what to expect from this new project, but I’m looking forward to finding out!
