Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 12/5-12/11

Last week was a blur of music and French fries ending with a lovely birthday party at a park where there were cupcakes, live music, balloon animals, some coloring with markers…okay, the party was ostensibly for a 2 year old and the live music involved a few creative rounds of “Wheels on the Bus”, but I was given ginger beer which made me feel like the party was for me too!

Next week, The Shadowboxers are in town, the stream of holiday shows begin, and I’m having a very difficult time deciding on a game plan for Monday night.  Why do all the good free shows have to be on the same evening?!?
