Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 3/5-3/11

Had a bit of an adventure Friday night when, driving to First Fridays at The Natural History Museum, I got a flat tire.  It was raining, rush hour, and most auto shops were closing, but I was surprisingly calm as I called for the tow, figured out where I could go to get it fixed that night, and somehow, miraculously made it to the Natural History Museum in time for the main event, Mondo Cozmo.  I’m not sure if it was because of the car troubles or the fact that I hadn’t been to a show all week or the beautiful friends that I ran into at the event or maybe the buffalos the band was playing in front of, but the night turned into one of the most uplifting and transformative Mondo Cozmo experiences (and they are all quite good so this is saying something).

I know I’m not supposed to be going to many shows next week either, but with so many faves (Dear Boy, Dreamers/The Wrecks, Hudson Taylor, A Silent Film, HAWAI) and a plethora of highly anticipated acts (The Academic, Charlie Cunningham, Mt. Joy, Billy Raffoul) coming through, we’ll see how much I can hold to that. Either way, I anticipate a sleep-light week.
