Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 2/13-2/19

I had the opportunity to see a screening of John Wick: Chapter 2 last week and now I’m on a let’s watch Keanu Reeves kill everything movie spree.  I don’t think I realized how many choices I had here. I’ve cued up John Wick, Constantine, and The Matrix.  I’ll have to end the series with a viewing of The Lake House or something.

We’ve also begun the SXSW countdown. 1 month to go this week! I’m behind on my music listening so I feel like this week, I’ll have to sacrifice a couple shows in order to devote more time to prep for the big week in Austin. But maybe I’ll find myself out at some point, hopefully celebrating a few Grammy wins…
