Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 9/20-9/26

As I slowly build back up to my regularly scheduled concert program, I have been reminded of all the amazing things that come with live music and discovering new artists and songs in the live setting. On the eternal quest to see your next favorite band for the first time, however, you end up seeing…a lot of bands that will not become your next favorite.  I was reminded of that particular joy last week, but honestly, I’ve never been so happy to sit in the back of the room listening to a band I never need to see again.

Next week brings with it some very special shows, including the one and only Frank Turner coming all the way from England to play The Echo and a mid-week trip to San Diego to see Dear Boy!

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 9/13-9/19

I’m still feeling the glow from the BottleRock Music Festival last weekend. Songs of new faves Valley, JJ Wilde, and Mod Sun have been floating around my head all week. I was lucky enough to catch Mod Sun again at The Roxy in Los Angeles last week and next week, we’ve got another BottleRock artist, BabyJake at the Morroccan Lounge.

Instead of a show pick of the week, next week I’m going to have a venue pick with the Moroccan Lounge. Every single night, it’s a win. I’m especially looking forward to checking out LA band Moon Walker on Thursday. Also, I may or may not be heading to the venue right now after learning 2021 standout Rightfield is opening for The Orphan The Poet tonight. Check out their album Rightfield, One (and join me in playing “Himalayas” on repeat).

Musical plans remain intact, however, and these include seeing The Wrecks close out their west coast tour in Berkeley and the BottleRock Music Festival where I hope to finally see New Zealand’s Six60, discover new artists, and catch faves like Mondo Cozmo, Donna Missal, Reignwolf, and Meg Myers.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 8/23-8/29

Last week felt almost normal with the amount of show-going. But of course, it’s not really as it was. The pandemic continues to rule, and venues and musicians and audiences all seem to have different ideas about how to keep live music going.  I’m hoping as more venues continue to open and more bands start to tour, there will be greater consistency with regulations and enforcement and show-going will feel a bit safer again.

This week, both The Troubadour and The El Rey open again for music. Top show pick of the week: The Milk Carton Kids at The El Rey on Saturday night.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 8/16-8/22

As I slowly try to figure out how to both safely and comfortably return to the show-going life, I’ve been struggling with the concept of stopping work in the evening and mustering the energy to go out and run around town on the fumes. Last week I found some inspiration from an unlikely source- a comic book! Volume 8 of The Sandman has a gem of a panel where the faerie Cluarcen, after a busy night of mischief-making, exclaims, “It’s amazing how much one can accomplish in an evening, if one is willing to expend a little effort, and to walk briskly.”  This life motto struck a chord (or maybe a memory) and got me out the door with great success!

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 8/9-8/15

Last week was all about cats, potatoes, and emotional upheavals.  At the end of the madness, I went to a screening of Sean Penn’s Flag Day where Sean Penn himself answered questions about his new film starring his daughter, Dylan Penn. The real star of the film, in my opinion, was the music. Penn found a way to bring out these beautiful songs with visual montages and the combo hit all the right emotional notes. As the credits rolled, I noticed that many of the songs were credited to Glen Hansard, Eddie Vedder, and Cat Power so that explained a lot! I look forward to the release of the Flag Day Soundtrack August 20th so that I can really dig into these tunes.
