Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 12/4-12/10

After a few early days/nights, two friend-filled brunches (and a happy hour) and one very lively coffee shop arena rock night, I may finally be getting over this jet lag business.  And to prevent the post vacation depression from setting in, I am doing the only logical thing- planning my next trip!  I’m eyeing an east coast trip conveniently timed around a few dates on the AWOLNATION/Nothing But Thieves/Irontom tour. What a line-up!

Looking into the more immediate future, I might tackle my strong desire to still be in London by seeing a couple British bands, Scars on 45 at the Hotel Cafe (Monday) and Until The Ribbon Breaks at The Peppermint Club (Thursday).
