Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 12/3-12/9

I keep saying this is a terrible time of the year to make any big decisions, yet it feels increasingly like change is imminent.  Hopefully I can get through the next week without making any decision beyond determining if a band I love with the single I don’t quite love is still making the kind of music I want to listen to.

If I can keep it together, health-wise, I’ll be a good one for some tunes with Ireland’s Picture This and The Contenders w/ Tony Lucca being particular highlights for me.
