Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 3/19-3/25

Well, another glorious SXSW has come and gone.  I’ve got so many stories swirling around my head, but functioning on 2 hours of sleep, so we’ll just stick to a brief top 6 highlights:

1 – Anything Morgxn related

2 – Falling in love with new artists like Jade Bird, Bad Pony, Sam Fender, and Morgan Saint

3 – The Aussie BBQ and Southwest Invasion (the best parties)

4 – Eating my weight in cheese (seriously, there was a queso-off and then the world’s largest cheese board)

5 – rocking out with SUR

6 – Having Frank Turner call me to the stage to wish me a happy birthday and then seeing the audience, so incredibly happy, sing along with such love and glee to my song request.

Let’s see if I can ride this wave of excitement all the way into WonderCon next weekend!  What’s going to help is Thursday night when SXSW faves, SUR, play The Peppermint Club. I’d highly recommend that one!
