Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 7/16-7/22

Last week ended up being celebratory for many reasons. There was my 10-year LA anniversary, record or EP release events for a few great bands (Static & Surrender, The Record Company, Dreamers), and some exciting work-related news.  There was also a lot of prep work for next week which is San Diego Comic Con! I’ll be in San Diego for most of the week, but if I were in town, I’d be excited to hit up several shows, especially The Matches at The Troubadour (another 10-year anniversary!).
