Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 7/30-8/5

The GISH has begun! This weekend, I embark on a week-long scavenger hunt with an international team of intrepid, creative, and slightly weird individuals.  I’m doing my best to fight through exhaustion and find some time in my already jam-packed schedule to participate in at least some of the mayhem.  Today, I visited an animal shelter, found a sign language instructor, and am thinking about engineering and bookshelves…

Also, thinking about all the great music happening this week. Monday, in particular, is going to be an adventure as I play the how many venues can you get to in one evening game.  Between Meg Myers’ record release celebration, High Voltage presenting two events (game night at Scum & Villainy Cantina and the Yip Yops residency at The Echo), and the one and only Zane Carney heading at the Troubadour, it will be a fun challenge to see and do as much as possible!
