Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 3/09-3/15

2020 has been rough! These last couple of weeks in particular have been difficult to get through, culminating with the cancellation of my favorite week of the year at SXSW. I am doing my best to focus on the silver lining which is that instead of Austin, I will be spending my birthday week in Florida watching my baseball team at Spring Training (something I have never done because of the timing with SXSW).  I guess I will be watching the next generation of baseball players rather than sampling the next musical breakouts…

Hopefully, all of my top SXSW2020 picks come through LA soon. We’re off to a start this week with shows from Patrick Sweany, Frances Quinlan, and Great Grandpa (among many others):
