Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 1/2-1/8

Happy 2017! I started my year with a walk/dance on the beach which I feel is particularly fitting as I’ve happily managed to find employment that will keep me in Los Angeles for the time being (woo hoo!).  This year is bound to come with some changes, but I hope to continue going to shows and keeping you all up to date on my favorite local music happenings. For my reflections on 2016, check out my 2016 Music Mix.

I’d say 2017 is musically off to a slower start, but this could just be because many venues are slacking with posting their January calendars.  I’ll do my best to update throughout the week, but here’s what I’ve got right now:
