Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 4/16-4/22

Posted on by .

I’m going to put this lingering cough to the ultimate test tonight, a movie in the theater! Because I’m feeling particularly daring, let’s make it The Quiet Place, the movie with subtitles.  Due to the coughing, I tried to take it easier last week, but fewer shows seemed to translate into more time to run around trying varieties of cheese tea.  My favorite, so far, is a place in Koreatown (Tan-Cha), but I had a cheddar cheese foam with Matcha tea and boba downtown that gets very high marks for its uniqueness in both flavor and cup design.

I foresee more boba on the horizon Monday night as I make the trek to The El Rey to see Sigrid with Cyn and Dean Lewis (what a lineup!) and will make a stop at Yuko Kitchen across the street pre-show.  I also look forward to hearing everyone’s Coachella (or Coachella-adjacent stories!) this week.

What goes up, must come down.  After a stellar, music-filled March, my April is off to a very expectorant-heavy start. On the bright side, I’ve discovered an amazing chicken soup and my inability to sleep due to the incessant coughing has answered my question of when I was going to find the time to finish my book club’s book.  If anyone needs a good read, I’d highly recommend City of Thieves by David Benioff.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 3/19-3/25

Well, another glorious SXSW has come and gone.  I’ve got so many stories swirling around my head, but functioning on 2 hours of sleep, so we’ll just stick to a brief top 6 highlights:

1 – Anything Morgxn related

2 – Falling in love with new artists like Jade Bird, Bad Pony, Sam Fender, and Morgan Saint

3 – The Aussie BBQ and Southwest Invasion (the best parties)

4 – Eating my weight in cheese (seriously, there was a queso-off and then the world’s largest cheese board)

5 – rocking out with SUR

6 – Having Frank Turner call me to the stage to wish me a happy birthday and then seeing the audience, so incredibly happy, sing along with such love and glee to my song request.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 3/12-3/18

Posted on by .

It’s beginning to feel a lot like South By….evvvverywhere I go!  From last night’s dance with The Wrecks and Dreamers to this morning’s random free drink at The Coffee Bean, I might as well already be in Austin for my favorite time of the year, SXSW Music Week!  My actual trip begins tomorrow.  Per usual, I’ve listened to all the artists, compiled a 20+ page schedule of events, and packed a suitcase full of comfortable walking shoes.  Top artists to see include faves like Frank Turner, SUR, and morgxn, but I’m also looking forward to checking out a ton of new (to me) artists like Sam Fender, Bad Pony, half*alive, and Jade Bird. We shall see which new artist or band meets (or dare I say exceeds) “the Graham Bar”, so named for Lukas Graham the year that band blew everyone else out of the water.

If you’re in LA and also want to discover some great new music, go check out Findlay or Bobi Andonov playing Monday night. And if you just want to see some favorites do NOT miss the AWOLNATION, Nothing But Thieves, Irontom extravaganza coming to The Wiltern for two nights!

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 3/5-3/11

Posted on by .

Had a bit of an adventure Friday night when, driving to First Fridays at The Natural History Museum, I got a flat tire.  It was raining, rush hour, and most auto shops were closing, but I was surprisingly calm as I called for the tow, figured out where I could go to get it fixed that night, and somehow, miraculously made it to the Natural History Museum in time for the main event, Mondo Cozmo.  I’m not sure if it was because of the car troubles or the fact that I hadn’t been to a show all week or the beautiful friends that I ran into at the event or maybe the buffalos the band was playing in front of, but the night turned into one of the most uplifting and transformative Mondo Cozmo experiences (and they are all quite good so this is saying something).

I know I’m not supposed to be going to many shows next week either, but with so many faves (Dear Boy, Dreamers/The Wrecks, Hudson Taylor, A Silent Film, HAWAI) and a plethora of highly anticipated acts (The Academic, Charlie Cunningham, Mt.
