Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 7/17-7/23

I am currently at war with a fan. The fan has decided that it wants to squeak and I have decided to take issue with that. So far, the battle score is fan: 1, me: 1. It took a couple of tries, but my latest attempt using WD-40 seems to have at least reduced the noise from a loud and constant scream to an occasional chirp.  I’m calling that one a win, but I’m not sure that the war is over quite yet.

We’ll have to press pause the battling next week as I will be in San Diego to cover Comic Con as part of team High Voltage.  While I am away, be sure to get out to some shows for me. I had the privilege of seeing Wrabel last week and he is one of those artists whose live show will blow any recording out of the water. Don’t miss him at The Hotel Cafe Wednesday night.
