Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 5/8-5/14

Today has been a day for discovery.  I discovered some new comics at Free Comic Book day including one by a fellow Dead Sara fan who recognized me from a show.  I discovered that not only is there a type of plant called a bromeliad, but there are people who grow and “show” said plants.  Most excitedly, I discovered a new TV show, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.  You really can’t go wrong when the title character is a Bryn Mawr alumna and the pilot is written by Amy Sherman-Palladino so you know it’s full of snappy dialogue and rich and very colorful characters.

Looking to discovery some music next week?  See suggestions below, highlighted by Thursday night at The Echo with Dear Boy. Don’t miss it!
