Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 8/21-8/27

I am about to head out for another round of Echo Park Rising (via a birthday lunch downtown).  I was at EPR Thursday and enjoyed the evening, but I was definitely wearing the wrong shoes and ended up limping around the office on Friday. I will NOT make that mistake today.  Comfy shoes, sunscreen, sharpie, camera, water bottle…Check! Check! Check! Check! Check!

Next week is pretty packed musically speaking, but I’d underline, highlight, and circle Weds night at The Viper Room featuring current musical obsession, Badflower.
