Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 6/5-6/11

Last week, I put more effort into this frustrating (and very time-consuming) apartment search. I explored a couple different neighborhoods and the current struggle is determining how far up the priority list sits “close proximity to boba tea”.  It IS an item on my spreadsheet…

More obvious to me is the must attend show next week, the answer clearly being Badflower and Goodbye June at The Troubadour. I’m slightly sore from rockin’ out at The Fonda Saturday night with Highly Suspect but I think I still have some headbanging left in me.

On the other end of the music spectrum, we’ve got a couple acts from across the pond, Irish singer-songwriter Dermot Kennedy and British sibling trio Miccoli.  They’ve both recently been added to my “to check out” list and I’ve got high hopes for good live shows.
