Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 2/6-2/12

I have found something to love about the Super Bowl! While the game was going on, I was able to drive about town with next to no traffic.  I went to the Farmer’s Market and then took to my favorite beach where I went for a long walk, watched the sun set and caught up with my bestie who lives on the opposite coast (also uninterested in football-related antics).  The sound of the water crashing to the shore made it impossible to be unhappy.  Thank you, Super Bowl!

Lots of musical offerings next week to look forward to. I caught a little bit of Asaf Avidan last week at The Hotel Cafe and the room was electric. There are two more chances to see him this week before he heads to France. He tells a great story about singing like a dying cat!
