Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 11/19-11/25

I went on a little adventure last week. Friday, I found myself in Lawrence, Kansas. Why you ask? Well, it was a combination of things. Mostly a combination of me wanting to get away coinciding perfectly with an opportunity to see Badflower open for The Wrecks as part of The Wrecks’ big headlining tour.  It was a lovely day! I had some BBQ, went to a couple museums, found a place that sold German gummies, talked with way too many strangers about basketball, and got to watch a little venue just off the main drag explode into a giant sing-along when The Wrecks broke into their first single, “Favorite Liar”. The whole experience reminded me why I love living in LA, why I love traveling for music, and why I love my bands.

Due to the holiday, next week seems on the quiet side. I am, however, fulfilling a high school fantasy Monday night at The Belasco seeing the only boy band that ever mattered to me, BBMak.
