Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar 10/2-10/8

This weekend made my baseball-loving heart very happy. I was able to see one of the very last Cardinal’s games of the year…in St. Louis!  Not only did they win, but it was done in an exciting come-back fashion.  It was such a thrill to be rooting for the home team.  On top of that, the game’s giveaway was a bobblehead of my favorite former player AND I finally got a replacement hat for the really disgusting one I wore out years ago (but still wear).  My only quibble is with the merchandise selection. Why don’t they sell players jerseys or shirts in women’s sizes?!?  After a painstaking internal debate, I had finally settled on the name I wanted only to go to the store to find that the smallest size available was rather tent-like.

In addition to all things baseball, my weekend was filled with family, steakburgers, and frozen custard (the other reasons I come to Missouri).  But, as always, I am looking forward to getting back to LA, my mecca for musical adventures.  Next week holds a few promising ones, including Friday night with The Arkells and Irontom at The Roxy. To tie it all together, I did wear an Irontom shirt to the baseball game and got several people to inquire about it. I’ll call that another win!
