Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 3/27-4/2

Mon the Biff! Mon the Biff! Mon the Biff! I’m getting warmed up for my evening tonight with my beloved Biffy Clyro.  It’s either going to be the best show ever or a bit of a letdown as it’s been so long since I’ve seen them play, their greatness might be so built up a little too much in my mind.  I also went to an insanely good show last night at The Troubadour with Knox Hamilton and Colony House which feels hard to top.  Let’s see if Biffy Clyro can do it once again! I have high hopes.
