Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 04/30-05/06

Posted on by .

This week consisted of some music-driven highlights.  From a friend-filled three venue, 7 band “perfect night” to an uplifting evening with Jukebox the Ghost and their rainbow horse, my evenings were pretty satisfying. It was also a great week for new music. I’m excited to dig into new offerings from Cary Brothers, We Are Scientists, and the DMA’s, but honestly, I can’t get past an obsessive listening of Matt Maeson’s new EP, The Hearse.

This week, we have the last of the April residency nights.  If you haven’t caught Ramonda Hammer and Stonefield, here’s your last chance! We’ve also got Mainland, Charlotte Cardin, Dear Boy and the aforementioned Matt Maeson (opening for Bishop Briggs) all taking the stage this week.  How lucky are we?!?

I’ve been living vicariously through others photo posts of Coachella. I’m not really sad I’m not there because I don’t miss the heat and dust but it’s been nice to view from afar. I had no shows this week but I did spend a day doing a cross-country clinic on my horse. We had a good time but I think I’m still recovering.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 4/23- 4/29

Posted on by .

Life’s been feeling a bit messy lately, so this weekend I started organizing…my bookshelf!  It was surprisingly cathartic.  I separated by genre and then author, leaving out the unreads for easy access.  Morgan Saint provided the perfect musical backdrop.  I also participated in an episode of our High Voltage Radio Hour.  It was my first show in ages, so I was probably rusty, but I did take the opportunity to talk about some of the music I’ve been listening to lately as well as my new favorite theory that your Harry Potter house can be predicted by the way you eat Handi Snacks.  When the episode is ready, you can listen here: https://anchor.fm/high-voltage-radio-hour.

We’ve got quite a few show options this week, but a few too many on certain days.  Please, someone, tell me what to do Monday night!

It’s been a rather exhausting week for me. It started with jury duty, which meant a few super early (for me) mornings and ended with a few long days at the barn and a lot of cleaning and laundry. It’s probably best that April is a slow month for me because May is going to be jam-packed, between Bottlerock, Pink, The Struts, and a Carney reunion, I’m going to be very tired. But let’s focus on where we are right now…

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.

Amanda’s SD Concert Calendar 4/9-4/15

Posted on by .

This week seemed both long and short. I can’t believe I spent Tuesday at House of Blues for The Hunna/Coasts show because that seems so long ago but I also can’t believe it’s already Sunday. I had a great time at the show on Tuesday (despite being very tired) and made some new friends, one from LA and one from down here (hi Erin!). I’m super glad I bought my ticket ahead of time so that I would actually make it to the show. Totally worth leaving the house to attend.

I don’t know if I’ll be making it out to any shows this week. I’m on call for jury duty for the whole month of April and I get to call again tonight after 6pm to find out if I have to go in. I suppose it’s better than a wasted day but it’s hard to be “on call” because then I’ll have to rearrange my plans for the week. We shall see…

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 4/9-4/15

Posted on by .

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.

My goal this week is to feel better by Wednesday night when High Voltage is sponsoring The Colour Coast residency at The Satellite. Free show! You should come!
