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

Yours truly took a jaunt up to La La Land to see Michelle Branch and got transported back to the early 2000s. It was a lovely and super fun time at the Troubadour! I’m still wearing my wristband from that evening. The following night was spent watching Eliza & the Delusionals open for the Silversun Pickups at the Observatory in North Park. A super fun way to kick off Rocktober! Lots of great stuff going on this week and not a bad day to choose from. Have fun!

Amanda’s SD Concert Calendar 9/26-10/2

This week was supposed to have a big fat reunion of The Calling playing songs from Camino Palmero but unfortunatly, that tour was cancelled. My consolation prize is seeing Michelle Branch in LA on Tuesday and although I already had that ticket, the double hit of nostaliga this week would’ve been epic. That’s ok though as there’s lot of fun stuff to get up to!
