Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 12/17 – 12/23

Between the magic of the Broadway stage (complete with wands), the magic of the snow falling in Central Park, and the hours spent meandering around various neighborhoods, museums, and galleries, my couple of days in New York City were inspiring! I only wish that my recovery from the flu hadn’t interfered with my appetite…although I did manage to get in a few pierogis.  I also managed to make it back to LA in time to see The Wrecks headline at The Troubadour. This was a special moment for me asI was at The Troubadour interviewing The Wrecks a couple of years ago…their very first interview. It’s crazy to see how far they’ve come and how much love was in that room.
