Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 6/26-7/2

It’s been since I went to that screening of Only Lovers Left Alive in 2014 that I’ve mentioned how much I enjoy Jim Jarmusch’s work.  Today, I watched his 2016 film, Paterson, and feel like it’s about time to say it again. I love Jim Jarmusch! Paterson, starring Adam Driver, follows the daily routine of a New Jersey bus driver/poet over a largely uneventful week in his life.  It was one of those light on action, heavy on implications type of films (my favorite) and I will be contemplating it all week!

Also this week, I hope I will be able to get out and enjoy some music (this incessant cough/lack of sleep business has been quite limiting).  There are some very exciting show options including Sir Sly who is back at The El Rey with a new look and new music!
