Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 1/23-1/29

Last week, I was in both Germany and Iceland, I started a new job, I participated in the Women’s March in downtown LA, and I managed to catch Ari Hest at The Hotel Cafe.  I felt like I had zero down time, but I guess that is my life now.  Next week is a big one, music-wise.  Thursday night promises an early contender for show of the year in Zane Carney’s headlining gig at The El Rey. It was announced last week that his backing band will be none other than the guys of Carney, my first LA band love and still one of the greatest bands I’ve ever had the pleasure of seeing. I could not BE more excited and I really hope to see you all there.
