Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 12/31-1/6

This week, another year comes to a close. I put together this whole “best of” 2018 document.  A lot of it revolves around all the traveling I was able to do (best food = Mag Mud at Magnolia’s in Austin; best art = galleries around the Hi Line in NYC; best concert = being on stage with Frank Turner at SXSW).  One of my top accomplishments of the year is finally starting an online catalogue of all of the shows I’ve been to.  I totaled 206 in 2018 and now I’m working my way backwards.  Of course, my recap includes my 2018 Music Mix! Here’s the Spotify version (B-Sides still to come):

Next week, I’m looking forward to getting out, especially Thursday night to see Holy Wars at The Echo!
