Amanda’s SD Concert Calendar 10/18-10/24

I am fresh off a Badflower double whammy. Finally got to listen and experience their new music live, which is half the fun. Whomever is in charge of their lighting for the show and the show intro should get a bonus. Sorry, it’s the theater geek coming out in me. Regardless, Rocktober is taking a big swing at me and we have another pretty packed week. Here’s to another action packed week!

Amanda’s SD Concert Calendar 10/11-10/17

I don’t know about you but my Rocktober is in full swing! I may not have been able to make it out during the week last week despite many good intentions but I more than made up for it Saturday night. This was probably one of the craziest weekends I’ve had in awhile which involved a Dead Sara/Dear Boy double header one night in LA and finished off with a horse show bright and early Sunday morning. I should probably stay home and recover but I find that highly unlikely this week given Badflower, The Score, and Walk the Moon are coming to town. Let’s dance.

Amanda’s SD Concert Calendar 9/27-10/3

I found myself venturing out more than once this week and subsequently felt like I needed to relax the rest of the week. Ha! I made it out on Monday to check out Plague Vendor and Lowlives who I very much enjoyed. That evening was made better by the lovely woman behind the bar who gave me some earplugs as mine had developed legs and walked off somewhere. Kristen came down for a magical night at Soda Bar with Dear Boy and The Dumes. All in all, a wonderful week music wise for me. We have some standouts this week as we start into Rocktober. Maybe I’ll see you there?

Amanda’s SD Concert Calendar 9/20-9/26

I made it out to one show this week. Per Kristen’s recommendation, I went to Soda Bar to check out Rightfield and they definitely did not disappoint!! Can’t wait for that group to come back around. However, I will say the Soda Bar was far too cold for the amount of bodies inside the room. I have no idea how the 20 somethings were walking around in skirts and tanks when I was in jeans with a sweater and my hood up. Sigh. The perils of age.

I am very excited this week to be seeing Dear Boy at above mentioned music venue. Hopefully, it will be far more crowded and much less cold! Here’s what else is in store…
