Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 6/19-6/25

There is nothing more relieving on a sore throat than a nice honey lemon tea from my favorite tea shop! Unfortunately, a string of sleepless nights (not by choice) accompanying a week of frustration on both the home and work fronts, have left me under the weather.

There were a few bright spots last week, two occupied by a couple extraordinary singers who know their way around a guitar (Cobi and Reeve Carney) and one by a friend who joined me at a show simply because I needed a hug. I also had the pleasure of seeing The Rescues again after many years. Their residency at The Hotel Cafe continues this week and I can’t think of a better top concert pick.
