Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 8/6-8/12

Last week was yet another example of how music fixes everything.  I was feeling overwhelmed by life and then Monday night, after spending an evening with Zane Carney and his incredibly talented friends, somehow everything became manageable again.  And I’d like to pause for a second to reflect on how cool it was when Zane brought up his sister, Paris, as well as Evan Rachel Wood and T.V. Carpio to sing a medley of songs from the movie, Across the Universe which celebrated its 10-year anniversary last week by spending a few days back in the theaters.


Next week, Harvard & Stone seems the place to be with an exciting list of up and coming bands, but my pick of the week goes to Sunday night’s show at The Moroccan Lounge featuring Cary Brothers!
