Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 10/01-10/07

It’s been a depressing time for baseball, so this past week I was particularly grateful for the musical escape offered by Nothing But Thieves, Stella Donnelly and two nights of Dear Boy. Seeing a favorite band two nights in a row was a particular treat!  Same band and same venue, but very different experiences.

Next week, another favorite plays a long overdue show.  Thursday night at Bootleg Bar, Parade of Lights makes a return to Los Angeles! I’d be there with bells on except I’m out of town for a wedding.  Thus begins the conflicts and bad timing of October…
