Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 6/25- 7/1

This weekend, I’m putting on one of my favorite hats, that of trip planner.  At the end of this week, I’m excited to get away for my first official trip of the summer!  The destination is Seattle and the purpose of the getaway is to celebrate the impending nuptials of one of my favorite people.  The itinerary is mostly set, and sadly does not include any musical adventures, but I will have some free time Friday and Sunday afternoons if anyone has suggestions for things to do in downtown Seattle…  I shall be Yelping boba shops and museums imminently.

Before I jet away, we’ve got a couple can’t miss shows this week; Meg Myers’ long-awaited return to LA (playing The Echo) and Aussie badass Gin Wigmore at The Troubadour. Let’s do this!
