Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 10/17-10/23

The microwave in the house stopped working last night (crackles, smoke, danger, danger). I stood in the middle of my Ralph’s today completely perplexed as to how to shop for the week while remaining within my budget.  I guess I will be eating lots of peanut butter, granola, and crackers with cheese.  Yay.

On the brighter side, this week’s concert calendar pretty much reads like my current “favorites” playlist. Badflower, Young Rising Sons, Dreamers, and The Hunna all have shows in LA this week. I really hope I can make it out to see a few of them. You should too!
