Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 12/30-1/5

Happy 2020! 2019 has been an interesting year. It began with a new apartment, ended with a new car and had a lot of memorable musical experiences in between.  Due to the last two weeks of car madness, my 2019 Music Mix has not been finalized, but upon some reflection, here are some 2019 musical highlights:

  • Top “and the” 2019 albums from Jared & The Mill, Judah & the Lion and Catfish and the Bottlemen
  • Finally seeing Maverick Sabre sing “I Need” and The Pink Spiders play “Hey Jane”
  • A Badflower-inspired tour of the UK/Scotland
  • A bar-setting album release party with In the Valley Below
  • Matt Nathanson’s wheel of songs landing on “Little Victories”
  • Two nights in a row of Gang of Youths at The Roxy
  • A Dear Boy-filled SXSW
  • Sam Fender’s debut album, Hypersonic Missiles
  • KidEyes release of “Spellbound”
  • My Spotify’s most listened to song (Donna Missal’s “Keep Lying”) and band (Biffy Clyro)
