Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 1/28-2/3

I’m not sure that I would have survived last week without some very well-timed shows Thursday and Friday nights.  I was particularly thrilled Thursday at The Satellite when The Pink Spiders played a bit of that one song I’ve been wanting to hear live for over a decade! That moment got me through my week…

As for next week, I’m particularly looking forward to The Fonda Tuesday night when Jamie N Commons opens for Jacob Banks.
