Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 3/6-3/12

Last week certainly was a busy one. Between spending time with Matt Woods, Mondo Cozmo, Jack Savoretti, and my new band love, BRAVES (plus a podcast taping and a board game night), I did not meet my SXSW-prep goals.  This weekend, I’ve had to focus on work as well as lingering obligations from grad school which have put me in a state of stress that I have not felt in months. I’m trying to see the bright side…at least this is no longer my everyday life. Also, prepared or not, SXSW is only one week away and it is going to be awesome!

In the meantime, can we talk about what is happening next Thursday night?  Irontom announced that they were joining Dead Sara at El Cid.  I am beside myself with anticipation for what I am certain will be one of the most insane shows of the year. Faces will melt.  Brains will explode. I hope to see everyone there!
