Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 1/17-1/23

I went down a bit of an Anais Mitchell rabbit hole this week sparked by repeated listening of recent single “Bright Star”.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 1/10-1/16

I am spending the weekend walking dogs and catching up on movies. There were some decent films in 2021, beautifully shot with particularly fun supporting characters/actors. I’m catching up on some of the award-nominated films, but honestly my favorite movie of the year is still The Matrix Resurrection which I appreciate more and more with each re-watch.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 1/3-1/9

Ready or not, 2022 here we come! I’ve spent a lot of time in the last few days listening to music but focusing on older tunes rather than new music or up and coming artists.  Spending time in past years instead of this new one has been calming. There is more anxiety around music these days, especially seeing it live.  Every day you have to ask yourself questions like Is the show still happening? or Is it safe? Then there is the strategizing: Should you go to the show on Monday or skip it to ensure you’ll be good to go to the show on Thursday? I’m hoping as we get further into the year these questions will become easier to answer.

Here are the shows around which I will have all the questions next week:

This year has been bereft of the usual holiday soirees, but I did go to the Music with Friends show at the Hotel Cafe which featured some powerhouse vocalists who did bust out a festive tune or two. I also managed to attend the Jessie J show earlier in the week which was an experience special enough that I can attribute it to the Holidays.  Today, The Milk Carton Kids Livestream had me smiling. They ended with a uniquely Milk Carton Kids rendition of “O Holy Night”, one of my favorite Christmas songs.

I have a feeling there will be an increase in livestreams for the rest of the year and beyond as we deal with another wave of this pandemic.  Hopefully, it won’t take as long to figure out how we can safely return to our shows.  In the meantime, here’s what we’ve got:

Monday: Covet w/ Mothe at the Moroccan Lounge (7pm)

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 12/13-12/19

My body feels a bit broken from all the walking I did last week on my “winter break”. A trip to Chicago did involve a few stray snowflakes, ice skating, and plenty of Christmas lights, but mostly I was there for some music including an intimate warehouse set from Morgxn, 2021 faves Cleopatrick, Badflower playing songs of their Temper EP (the best!), my first time seeing the incredible Evanescence, and a special holiday show staring Sarah Brightman.

This week, I will be particularly grateful for my car and sitting in traffic to get to shows instead of walking miles and miles after busses and trains decide not to work properly.
