Amanda’s SD Concert Calendar 11/1-11/7

I had two big musical events this past week, the sold out Almost Monday show at the Music Box and Danny Elfman’s Nightmare Before Christmas sing along in LA. Both were epic but in different ways. Imagine a sold out show full of your younger self (sixteen to twenty-something) in costume who managed to turn the floor/pit into a swirling mosh of bodies that moved as one being lead and orchestrated by the highly energetic and masterful touch of Almost Monday. That was my Thursday. Next, imagine seeing Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas in a huge stadium with an orchestra that played along to the movie complete with many original cast members including Danny Elfman, Greg Proops, Ken Page, and Paul Reubens. Also, toss in Billie Eillish singing Sally’s part. Oh and if that wasn’t enough, the encore turned into an Oingo Boingo concert where they played “Dead Man’s Party.”

Needless to say, I’m staying in until Sunday.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 11/1-11/7

It’s been a few days since I’ve been out for music and I feel very tempted to go to a show this evening, knowing it’s not really the best idea. The nail in the coffin of this notion is that I am staying at a friend’s place and wouldn’t be able to find easy parking when I got back late.  I feel like I’d have a very different life if I had to rely on street parking in Los Angeles. Today, I am extra grateful for my reserved parking space!   

Since I’ve been staying in more this week, I’ve had time to dig into new music releases from TRISHES, Wolf Alice, Joe P, The War on Drugs, and Biffy Clyro! Lots of good stuff, all deserving of a deeper dive.

Still forming my plans for next week, but they will certainly include Colony House (“O YA!!”)  and any number of the following:

Amanda’s SD Concert Calendar 10/25-10/31

I had an absolute ball this weekend at Chain Fest in Irvine!!! I was transported back to my prime emo days of 2010 where there was nary a care and some amazing adventures with friends. I FINALLY got to see Cartel, something I was sure would never happen; as well as the likes of Anberlin; Mayday Parade, who played ALL the jams from A Lesson In Romatics; the back and better than ever The Summer Set, and so many more. I’m thankful that event was rescheduled so I could attend and enjoy. Kudos to Kristen for our prime seat location, which was basically a seated spot in the pit. Fantastic view but could sit and dance instead of lean in pain! Also, props to FivePoint Amphitheatre for having a great space with good food and a top notch security detail. The little things matter folks.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 10/25-10/31

Saturday was a blast from the past at Chain Fest, a day featuring some of the great pop/punk bands from my earlier life including the recently resurrected The Summer Set, Mayday Parade playing songs off 2007’s A Lesson in Romantics, and staples from the soundtrack of my youth from Anberlin and Jimmy Eat World. The best part of the event was the seat location, close enough to provide a great view but also allowing me to dance from a seated position (I suffered zero foot, knee or back issues at the end of 8 hours of music)!  Several of the bands vocalized respect for the seated dancing move and my appreciation grew for bands that age along with their fans. The experience felt in severe contrast to other shows I attended last week *cough*Alexander 23*cough*

Next week we have a stacked Monday night highlighted by a TRISHES album release party at the Hotel Cafe, a week of Wolf Alice events, and several Halloween show opportunities (I’ll be spending the holiday weekend hiding out with a couple of dogs who will NOT be put in costume).
