Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 4/15-4/21

I’m in San Diego this weekend spending time with some friends and horses. Saturday was Record Store Day and we celebrated at Vinyl Junkies with Creature and the Woods and a poetry reading from the new book by Noah C Lekas called Saturday Night Sage.  I’d highly recommend the book, but, as with most of my media, I don’t think it could get any better than in live performance.

Show-wise, we have some tasty options this week including several Monday night residency bands I’d like to check out and a charity event Thursday night where New Zealand musicians (including Gin Wigmore!) will take the stage to raise funds those impacted by the terrorist attacks in Christchurch.
