Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 7/9-7/15

This heat is making me delirious.  This whole too hot to sleep yet too hot to stay awake thing can really mess with a person’s mental stability.  I’m finding some relief in a birthday party, movie, and cafes with wifi, but I really do look forward to returning to work tomorrow where I will have to bring a jacket.

Next week marks a pretty big occasion in my life.  On Tuesday it will be 10 years to the day since I moved to Los Angeles. I will be celebrating by doing the same thing I did my first night in this city, going to The Hotel Cafe.  Come join me!
