Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 5/14- 5/20

I threw this week’s calendar together in between baseball games in San Diego (my Cardinals are in town). I drove down Friday night, making a brief pit stop in Anaheim to see Mondo Cozmo and X Ambassadors.  Saturday’s game was a long one (extra innings!) and the outcome was not in my favor.  Sunday’s game was fun, but not only did we lose (again), my post game boba was terrible and my burrito was tainted with onions.  You can’t win them all!  But hey, I got to see my team for the first time this year, so I’m not really complaining. Go Cards!


Looking forward to next week as we’ve got Red Wanting Blue, Gangs of Youths, and a stacked Friday night highlighted by one of my faves, SUR, heading Bootleg Bar.
