Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 6/18-6/24

Posted on by .

I woke up this morning sore from a bit of a rough and tumble night at The Palladium.  Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls always put on a crazy show, but it was an opener from Philadelphia, The Menzingers, that had me caught in the middle of a whirling pit of bodies. In the end, I was tossed all the way to the front, so I suppose it worked out. Bonus points for a pre-show interview with Frank Turner.  We chatted about his 7th (!?!) album, Be More Kind, SXSW antics, and future projects that promise to be “extremely odd.”  There is no one quite like Frank Turner (interview forthcoming on High Voltage).

Tonight, I’m heading out for a murder mystery evening that centers around the death of an arrogant millionaire. I am playing the role of youngest daughter, so this will be the perfect way to spend a day devoted to fathers…

As for next week, plenty of good shows, but one do not miss featuring Badflower at The Troubadour Wednesday night. Hope to see you there!

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 6/-11- 6/17

Posted on by .

Last week was very much an I Love LA kind of week.  There was the opportunity to see The Record Company play at The Troubadour (still wrapping my mind around the fact that it was the band’s first time playing that venue), the crazy Hollywood event celebrating the music of Bones, the packed club where I saw Matt Maeson for the third time in two months, and the premiere of the Sense8 finale which included a surprise sing-along of the 4 Non Blonde’s “What’s Up” featuring Linda Perry herself.  I can’t imagine all of that being possible in many other cities…

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 6/4-6/10

Posted on by .

I’m struggling this week with passing deadlines and a seemingly endless to do list. It doesn’t help that everything I attempt seems to be stymied in some way.  The Ticketfly hack did its part to slow down any concert-related research and reporting.  I don’t think I realized how many venue websites relied on Ticketfly until suddenly they were all down!

In the vein of more uplifting reports, I hope everyone made it to at least one of The Struts Roxy residency shows last week because WOW…that band puts on a show!  I wish more bands would do multi-night gigs in smaller venues.  I fully support that concept.  One of the special guests the night I was there was Barns Courtney who you can catch this week at The Wiltern opening for The Kooks.  Other calendar highlights include Matt Maeson at The Echo and the return of Coyle Girelli (The Chevin) to The Hotel Cafe.

For my complete list, keep scrolling:

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 5/21-5/27

Posted on by .

After a bit of an emotionally taxing week, Friday night found me at The Bootleg Bar for SUR and it was everything!  Celebrating one of my favorite band’s new EP, Savage Beast, involved dancing, friends, portraiture, lots of much needed hugs, and an opening act that was…well, I’m not exactly sure how to describe a set delivered by a mostly naked man that ended with him being carried off in some sort of stretcher, but that’s what happened.

I have a feeling I’m going to need a lot of music this week, so it’s good fortune that I’m off to the Moroccan Lounge for some Gang of Youths and then my week will start off with a Carney reunion (of sorts) and end in Napa at the BottleRock music festival.  Friends + music = life.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 5/14- 5/20

I threw this week’s calendar together in between baseball games in San Diego (my Cardinals are in town). I drove down Friday night, making a brief pit stop in Anaheim to see Mondo Cozmo and X Ambassadors.  Saturday’s game was a long one (extra innings!) and the outcome was not in my favor.  Sunday’s game was fun, but not only did we lose (again), my post game boba was terrible and my burrito was tainted with onions.  You can’t win them all!  But hey, I got to see my team for the first time this year, so I’m not really complaining. Go Cards!

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 5/7-5/13

Posted on by .

If my venture to the Renaissance Faire today taught me anything, it was that I need to work out more.  A little knife throwing and one round of archery arrows and I am sore!  How weird would it look if I busted out some hand weights while waiting for a band to start?

Looking at my list, we’ll have plenty of opportunities to test out my new workout idea.  Last week brought to LA a couple of my top SXSW artists, Boniface and Jade Bird, and this week the SXSW trend continues with Violet Days, Field Report, and Allman Brown.  I’m rather looking forward to re-living more highlights from my favorite week in March.
