Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 5/28-6/3

Greetings from Napa, CA where I’m three days in to the BottleRock music festival.  I’m particularly excited about today as I get to introduce friends to some of my favorite bands and artists including Dean Lewis, Mondo Cozmo, Amy Shark, and The Wrecks!  I’m spending Monday in San Francisco, but then, back in LA we have The Struts residency at The Roxy (going to at least one of the nights) and a potential road trip to see SUR in San Diego…anyone up for a musical adventure?
