Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 9/10- 9/16

After a whirlwind week of music (seriously, every night there was at least one show!), I am enjoying a quick trip to NorCal where I celebrated both a marriage and 10 years of friendship with my grad school cohort.  Today, I’m venturing to the Oakland Alameda Coliseum (I had to look up what that one was called) to see a baseball game then it’s back to the airport and home again!

This week’s show pick: Tom Odell at Moroccan Lounge. He’s playing two sold out shows. If you weren’t lucky enough to get a ticket, head to The Hotel Cafe where Meiko is also doing a two-fer, the second set in the small room will be her playing her debut LP in its entirety!
