Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 8/6-8/12

Posted on by .

Last week was yet another example of how music fixes everything.  I was feeling overwhelmed by life and then Monday night, after spending an evening with Zane Carney and his incredibly talented friends, somehow everything became manageable again.  And I’d like to pause for a second to reflect on how cool it was when Zane brought up his sister, Paris, as well as Evan Rachel Wood and T.V. Carpio to sing a medley of songs from the movie, Across the Universe which celebrated its 10-year anniversary last week by spending a few days back in the theaters.

 

Next week, Harvard & Stone seems the place to be with an exciting list of up and coming bands, but my pick of the week goes to Sunday night’s show at The Moroccan Lounge featuring Cary Brothers!

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 7/30-8/5

Posted on by .

The GISH has begun! This weekend, I embark on a week-long scavenger hunt with an international team of intrepid, creative, and slightly weird individuals.  I’m doing my best to fight through exhaustion and find some time in my already jam-packed schedule to participate in at least some of the mayhem.  Today, I visited an animal shelter, found a sign language instructor, and am thinking about engineering and bookshelves…

Also, thinking about all the great music happening this week. Monday, in particular, is going to be an adventure as I play the how many venues can you get to in one evening game.  Between Meg Myers’ record release celebration, High Voltage presenting two events (game night at Scum & Villainy Cantina and the Yip Yops residency at The Echo), and the one and only Zane Carney heading at the Troubadour, it will be a fun challenge to see and do as much as possible!

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 7/2 – 7/8

Posted on by .

Greetings from Seattle! I’m nearing the end of a whirlwind trip that has included great food, catching up with friends, ginger beer, and tons of walking (yay!).  Today, I must decide between visiting a museum, attending a giant craft fair, or an afternoon baseball game…I don’t think I can go wrong here.

Next week looms the prospect of jury duty as the bread around a 4th of July sandwich. It feels odd having this particular holiday mid-week, but that won’t stop me from going to a BBQ!  I’m also hopeful that jury duty won’t keep me from catching a few concerts (I’m looking at YOU Mondo Cozmo opening for Vance Joy at The Greek Theatre).

 

Due to the holiday, we’re a bit show-light this week, but here’s what I’ve found:
