Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 12/2-12/8

Posted on by .

Despite the fact that both my body and my car tried to fall apart this long holiday weekend, I’m going to call it a win as there was lots of beach time, I finished a book and a puzzle, watched Harry Potter movies, and caught up with a few friends.  More importantly, I listened to a ton of music and got solid starts on both my 2019 music mix and 2020’s SXSW band list.  I kept coming back around to Sam Fender’s Hypersonic Missiles and a new(er) song by Matt Duke called “Mary Got Wasted”.

Upon reflection, there was a lot in the music realm to be excited about last year, but the year isn’t quite over so let’s see if anything in the next few weeks can crack the best of list. Top contenders this week include a slew of options Wednesday night and Dreamers playing Friday at The El Rey.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 11/25-12/1

Posted on by .

It feels very odd to be walking around in a t-shirt after weeks bundled up and prepared for the rain, but here I am.  I really must be back in Los Angeles.  That is going to take a minute to sink in.  Last week’s UK trip was definitely a success.  Highlights include hiking Arthur’s Seat, a successful quest for sticky toffee pudding, and introducing The Virginmarys to bubble tea (what they call boba over there).  I also discovered a few promising local bands like Polar States, Wild Front, and Jaws.  Of all the cities I visited, the best music scene (by far) was Manchester.  All the venues (I went to 4) were solid and you’ve got to love a city that offers multiple choice show options on a Monday night.

Speaking of multiple options on a Monday night, I present to you this week’s LA musical options.

 

Monday: Rosie Tucker residency FREE at Bootleg Bar (8:30)
ALSO: It’s a School Night at Bardot (8pm)
ALSO: Liz Phair at Largo (7:30)
ALSO: Madonna at The Wiltern (7:30)
ALSO: Monday Monday at the Hotel Cafe second stage (8pm)

 

Tuesday: The Colour Coast residency w/ Surely Lorraine, Time Travelers, All Things Blue FREE at The Hi Hat (8pm)
ALSO: WILD w/ Johnny Gates at Bootleg Theater (8:30)
ALSO: Writer’s Block LA at The Hotel Cafe second stage (9pm)

 

Weds: Filter at The Regent Theater (7pm)

 

Thursday: Happy Thanksgiving

 

Friday: Transviolet x ARMORS w/ The Griswolds at The Troubadour (8pm)
ALSO: The Deltaz and friends at The Hotel Cafe (8pm)

 

Saturday: Festy Baby at The Lodge Room f. Andy Clockwise.

 

Sunday: Be Kind Holiday Benefit at The Troubadour (7pm)

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 11/4-11/10

Posted on by .

This week has been weird and emotional, but it got off to a fabulous start Monday night at The Regent Theater downtown with Frank Turner hosting a rare, seated storyteller event. There were two sets; the second, with The Sleeping Souls accompaniment, traversed romantic entanglements via deeper cuts in previous albums and the opening solo set focused on select songs from the newest album, No Man’s Land. I had listened to the album and enjoyed the folk tales of previously unsung heroes, but what really struck me at the show was Frank’s enthusiastic intros to each of the songs. It hit me by the end of that set that although each of the song’s subjects were women (hence the album title), Frank never once pointed that out, instead claiming them all to be about important “people” throughout history.  Be still my little feminist heart! The evening ended, in more typical fashion, with a dance party singalong reminding us all about the importance of rock and roll (a very fitting conclusion to a successful Rocktober) Thanks, Frank Turner!

Next week we have some new November residencies, a BBMAK blast from my past, and Buzzbands.LA celebrating 11 years of supporing the local music scene Saturday night at The Hi Hat.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 10/28-11/3

Posted on by .

Highly Suspect and Hozier may not appear to have much in common, but last week I saw them both and noticed an interesting similarity; at both shows my heart rate plummeted while the artist was performing (thanks, Fitbit!).  Fun to note that my heart rate in a loud, crowded theater is lower than when sitting at my desk at work…  Conclusion: live music is medicine and I’ll be needing more of that, please!

Next week, we have the always cathartic Frank Turner in town at The Regent Theater Monday night. It’s also Halloween and while I usually try to avoid shows around Halloween, KidEyes is teaming up with Black Crystal Wolf Kids for a Halloween Spooktacular Thursday night that cannot be missed.
