Kristen’s Concert Calendar: 2/5-2/11

Posted on by .

There were so many birthdays and related celebrations this past week, I could not keep up!  I’m exhausted, but it was nice to break the routine a bit (don’t worry, I still saw 13 bands).  In addition to the music, I discovered truffle avocado toast, ate unicorn tears and Rainbow fries, taught a few people how to play Rummy and went down a slide that overlooked the entire city.  I also won a game of ping pong, but that might have a lot to do with the fact that it was doubles and my partner had the wingspan of an albatross…

Next week poses a few musical conundrums, especially Wednesday and Thursday nights.  I’m not even sure what to recommend. Just go out! Do something! Celebrate!

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 1/22-1/28

Posted on by .

Last week I celebrated one year at my job.  The anniversary unexpectedly put me in a weird headspace, so I did what I do anytime I need a mental re-set and headed to The Hotel Cafe.  I ended up at three different venues, seeing 4 bands and running into friends and making new ones everywhere I went!  I think it was at some point in the middle of a very heart-lifting set by Jared & The Mill that I thought to myself, “as long as I have my music, my friends, and my nights at The Hotel Cafe, I’ll be just fine”.

On the topic of music and friends, High Voltage is in need of some YouTube subscribers. I’ve spent the last few years helping to build the High Voltage video content by going to concerts, conventions, and festivals to interview artists and celebrities.  Check out what we do here https://www.youtube.com/user/highvoltagemag and be sure to click “subscribe” if you’re interested in seeing more.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 1/15-1/21

Posted on by .

I realized this week that of all the artists/bands I’ve seen so far this year, about 70% were women or lead by women.  Last week really bolstered the tally between the Lauren Ruth Ward residency, a slew of up and comers at The Peppermint Club (Clover The Girl, Bellsaint, O’Neill Hudson, Fiona Grey), and a sold out show at The Fonda featuring K.Flay.  2018 is most definitely the year of women!

Speaking of the Lauren Ruth Ward residency, if you’re looking to go, I’d recommend getting there on the early side. Last Monday it was raining and the place was still packed.  There are lots of great options for music Monday, so no matter where you end up, it will be a good night. I’m also looking forward to Wednesday night at The Hotel Cafe when Jared & The Mill come to town.
