Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 4/2-4/8

It seems like it was about a month ago when I was at the Bootleg Bar watching Conor Oberst and Pheobe Bridgers (surprise guests!), but that was only Monday. Monday was followed by Nashville rockers, Mona (AKA Tuesday), getting a taste of some new James Bay (Wednesday), a seven act musical feast at The Hotel Cafe (Thursday) and two back to back rock shows at The Troubadour (Friday and Saturday).  It would have been a perfectly productive week had I not suffered from some computer issues at work…


Playing next week by ear but looking forward to ending it Saturday night at The Hotel Cafe with another dance party at Coffee Shop Arena Rock night.
