Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 4/17-4/23

Happy Easter! I celebrated with a trip to Volcano Tea and a hot honey lemon tea which afforded me a whole 30 minutes of throat and nose relief.  I used the time to read. It was glorious!  I had a light week music-wise last week due to this cold business that I am confident will be gone in time for Irontom Monday night.  Also this week, I’m very excited to have TFDI (ie Tony Lucca, Jay Nash, and Matt Duke) back in town Tuesday and to check out Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes at a sold out show Thursday night.
