Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 8/14-8/20

Posted on by .

What a wild and crazy week with GISHWHES in my life! The international scavenger hunt really pushed me out of my comfort zone, altered my perspective on what is possible, and renewed my affections for this amazing city I get to live in.  Since proving the existence of ghosts last weekend, I photographed moon fairies, gave life to a Garbage Patch Kid, apologized to Sweden, and attended a coleslaw party so wild that the cops were called.

I really intended to focus my time last week on the hunt, but I still managed to make it to a show…or two…okay, three!  Next week is Echo Park Rising (http://epr.la/).  I hope to see many of you there, especially Thursday night for The Diamond Light’s final (forever? for now?) show at The Lost Room.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 7/31-8/6

Posted on by .

I clearly took on too much this weekend. I cancelled half of my plans and still didn’t get my work done. I did check off two items on my LA bucket list today. 1) Go to the Staples Center (I know, I know) and 2) see a professional basketball game! 4th row back from the court watching the LA Sparks was quite thrilling. I didn’t realize the game would be such a party scene, however.  Why, may I ask, is there a DJ during a professional basketball game?  Regardless, I rather enjoyed watching the only sport I ever actually played.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 7/17-7/23

Posted on by .

I am currently at war with a fan. The fan has decided that it wants to squeak and I have decided to take issue with that. So far, the battle score is fan: 1, me: 1. It took a couple of tries, but my latest attempt using WD-40 seems to have at least reduced the noise from a loud and constant scream to an occasional chirp.  I’m calling that one a win, but I’m not sure that the war is over quite yet.

We’ll have to press pause the battling next week as I will be in San Diego to cover Comic Con as part of team High Voltage.  While I am away, be sure to get out to some shows for me.
