Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 05/01- 05/07

This weekend came and went in a hurry. I didn’t even make a dent in my to do list, but I did spend an entire day playing games so I suppose that was my weekend.  I feel like after the day of gaming, I might be able to conclude that I prefer card games to board games.  Perhaps this is due to a greater familiarity with cards.  I can also build a mean card castle, but I’m not sure that is entirely relevant to the situation.

Next week, we’ve got more shows to delight and inspire. Friday night is the final night of the Taylor John Williams Hotel Cafe residency. I was lucky enough to be there last week and would definitely recommend checking this guy out.  I’m also very much looking forward to seeing Lewis Watson again Saturday night at The Troubadour as his songs are still swimming around my brain from SXSW.
