Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 8/26-9/1

Having one of those weeks where there is so much to do and it seems like I’m constantly doing something, but at the same time nothing is getting done…and I still have one more work-related item that needs to be finished “by Monday”, so we’ll keep this short. It’s not all bad, however; saw some great music last week, the Cardinals are on a tear, and I’m in the middle of the best book I’ve read in years (more on that later I’m sure)!

As for next week, another weekend, another summertime festival. This one brings headliners Cold War Kids and Phantom Planet to Golden Road Brewing. I wouldn’t miss it!
