Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 1/21-1/27

I am feeling a bit of a sugar crash, but that is to be expected at the end of an event dubbed Boba Tour 2019.  We were able to get to six places across the greater Los Angeles area. They all had their merits, but my favorite drink of the day was something called Autumn Fairy at Bubble U in Chinatown.  It was a productive week for boba and for music as I was able to sample 10+ new acts last week including a full set with new material from indie rockers, Overstreet (a new LA must see).

I am excited to continue the new music binge next week, but I am most looking forward to re-discovering a band I haven’t seen in 13 years, The Pink Spiders, who will be in LA Thursday night.
