Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 2/18-2/24

Posted on by .

Experienced a delightful moment today when I turned on NPR and stumbled upon a rebroadcast of Science Friday where they were talking about their book club pick, N.K. Jemisin’s The Fifth Season. Just so happens that my book club discussed the very same book last week!  Delightful!  The scientist-heavy panel brought a different perspective to the book which takes place in a world where extreme natural disasters bring about a new (a fifth) season with the potential to shift the foundations of society.  It’s a great read; the first in a trilogy. I wish the Science Friday panel would have discussed the literary merits a bit more. The use of the 2nd person to tell the story of one of the characters was slightly divisive in my book club and not even touched upon during the broadcast.  As always, book club needed more time.

Big week next week in the music realm. Between KidEyes at Moroccan Lounge, Badflower’s big album release show at the El Rey, and one of my top SXSW picks, Talos, opening for Aurora at The Fonda, there are quite a few can’t miss shows!

Today’s lesson learned: Never loiter on the Biffy Clyro website. Get in, get the information you came for, and get out before clicking on anything that says “shop”.  I’ve never wanted to learn how to skateboard more than after seeing the Ellipsis skate deck.  Then I thought, “that would look cool on a wall!”  I am in the beginning stages of decorating my new apartment. It’s pretty bare, but I do have random “Where is Biffy Clyro?” magnets in various places so we have already established a theme…

Speaking of favorite bands who rarely play, this week we have a REAL treat Monday night at The Troubadour when Reeve Carney & The Revolving Band play with a lineup that looks suspiciously similar to when I first saw this band over a decade ago. This is a can’t miss!

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 1/21-1/27

Posted on by .

I am feeling a bit of a sugar crash, but that is to be expected at the end of an event dubbed Boba Tour 2019.  We were able to get to six places across the greater Los Angeles area. They all had their merits, but my favorite drink of the day was something called Autumn Fairy at Bubble U in Chinatown.  It was a productive week for boba and for music as I was able to sample 10+ new acts last week including a full set with new material from indie rockers, Overstreet (a new LA must see).

I am excited to continue the new music binge next week, but I am most looking forward to re-discovering a band I haven’t seen in 13 years, The Pink Spiders, who will be in LA Thursday night.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 1/14-1/20

Posted on by .

Yesterday was a big day for me. After about 2 years of looking, and thanks to some very special people who didn’t mind lifting things in the rain, I finally moved into a place of my own! It seems very empty and it’ll probably be awhile before I get around to furniture and whatnot, but it has a kitchen and a whole separate room for sleeping so I’m stoked!  Speaking of this newfangled thing called a kitchen, if anyone has any kitchen supplies that they are trying to get rid of, I am in the market to expand my kitchen belongings past three bowls, two spoons, a knife, and a pizza cutter (I have no clue where that last one came from).

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 1/07-1/13

Posted on by .

I’m pretty sure I’ve listened to nothing but Biffy Clyro all year! Okay, small lie. I snuck in some Alanis Morrissette and Joe Firstman; classic comfort music. I’d love to talk about all of the live shows I’ve seen, but due to some recent stressors in both my home and work lives, I haven’t gotten out much. Amidst the turmoil, I had a lovely and restorative dinner with some good friends. 2019 is off to a rocky start, but I feel like if I can focus on the good things that are stable, I’ll make it through.
