Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 8/20-8/26

I have discovered something more uncomfortable than sitting in an unairconditioned room trying to work all day…sitting in said unairconditioned room trying to work while you are running a fever! Needless to say, my day has not gone as planned. Yesterday, however, I did my due diligence catching over 20 bands at Echo Park Rising. It was nice to see so many local faves, but I was mostly excited about discovering new acts like Foxes & Lions, New American, Lucy & La Mer, and Hey Hey which is not a band, but a tea shop turned venue that was by far the most enjoyable place to be with its comfy seats and boba tea bar.

Next week is a short one for me as I am taking off Thursday night for a long weekend in Denver. My baseball team is also in town, so I’m thinking my Monday, Tuesday, and Weds nights might be spent at Dodger Stadium rather than a concert hall or club. If anyone fancies a ballgame, let me know!

Meanwhile, tons of great music to check out. I’m particularly sad about missing out on a great night of rock Thursday at The Satellite and one of my favorites, Jared & The Mill, playing with Lydia Saturday night at The Troubadour. Someone better go in my stead.
