Kristen’s Remote Streaming Concert Calendar: 5/10-5/16

This past week, Twin Atlantic celebrated the 10-year anniversary of the release of their album, Free. There was a listening party, a previously unreleased Making Of Documentary, and some limited edition merch.  To commemorate one of my personal favorite albums, I purchased a “You Don’t Get Better Than Me Tea” mug for my ever-growing (and heavily utilized) collection of mugs.  It felt great to spend some time back in 2011! I’ve been living in the past a lot lately, musically and otherwise. I’m not sure if this is a consequence of the pandemic and the lack of live shows (my favorite vehicle for music discovery), or simply a product of my advancing age…

But don’t worry, I’m still doing my best to find you all the great rising bands. With the release of the deluxe edition, this week I was pulled back into the delicious soundscape of Rightfield’s debut album, Rightfield, One while also enjoying new singles from Paris Youth Foundation, Luna Bay, and Matilda Mann who I heard for the first time last week at the It’s a School Night showcase.

Next week’s streams feature Charlotte Cardin at Cover Nation, Part 2 of The Milk Carton Kids at The Troubadour and The Great Escape Festival has an online component (and stellar lineup).

Kristen’s Remote Streaming Concert Calendar: 5/3-5/9

I finished Anne with an E this week and although my feelings have yet to settle on some of particulars, watching the show was a delight and it certainly deserved more seasons. Anne Shirly, the character, is an inspiration and after given short shrift by the Netflix series, which ended before Anne really begins to grow up and into herself, I turned this weekend to my DVDs of the Kevin Sullivan miniseries from the 80’s which were both incredibly satisfying and nostalgic.

This week’s musical highlights included The Milk Carton Kids’ livestream from The Troubadour. The music, the banter – all on point and reminding me why I love this band.  The stream featured music from earlier in the duo’s pairing and, after watching it twice, I was compelled to venture down the road of listening to old Joey Ryan tunes and, with glee, I rediscovered gems such as “Like a Cloak, “Queen Jane” and “Permanent”, the last of which was played on the stream along with Kenneth Pattengale.

As for new music, I can’t get enough of Charlotte Cardin’s new album, Phoenix. You should check it out!

Kristen’s Remote Streaming Concert Calendar: 4/26-5/2

To celebrate Earth Day, I took a walk around my neighborhood, taking pictures of flowers. It’s a good time of year for flowers, both planted and wild, and I live in a place with a variety of both. I posted the photos and my great aunt requested more wildflowers so this weekend, I went on a grand adventure to hunt down more flowers and ended up walking along ocean-side cliffs, rocky beaches, and a couple not so easy to get to random fields.  The soundtrack to my adventure was provided by Bilk, Pep Squad, Calva Louise and the brilliant new album from Sir Sly.  Now every time Bilk’s insistent earworm “Stop Pranging Out” comes into my head it will be accompanied, in my mind, by oddly juxtaposed relaxing ocean vistas.

As for next week’s soundtrack, it will hopefully include livestream sets from The Milk Carton Kids, Morgxn, Dean Lewis and more:

Kristen’s Remote Streaming Concert Calendar: 4/19-4/25

I’ve made tentative plans with my sci-fi/fantasy book club to have our next meeting in person   and, let me tell you, book club has never felt so illicitly thrilling! I’ve also bought a ticket to another concert in the fall even though it’s still hard for me to fathom how the return to live, in-person music is going to go. I’m starting to pay more attention to show announcements and will do my best to include my Los Angeles picks on my list here until we revert back to an in person show list. In the meantime, I’m rather enjoying my remote showcases, particularly Monday/Wednesday with afternoons at Scruff of the Neck and the recent virtual return of It’s a School night in the evenings. Because of these showcases, last week was all about “Stop Prangin Out” by Bilk and “Freeway” by Briston Maroney until I fell down a familiar Twin Atlantic rabbit hole and listened to nothing but Free for three days.  Sometimes you just need comfort music.

Next week kicks off Season 3 of Tony Lucca in the Mo’Verb Lounge, finds Birdy joining Covers Nation and celebrates Earth Day with a couple choice music festival options.

Kristen’s Remote Streaming Concert Calendar: 4/12-4/18

The week’s calendar is brought to you by the questionable propriety of wearing shorts on a livestream. On tonight’s Sunday Songs, Joe Pug made the greatly debated decision to wear said article of clothing which he seemed to regret as soon as he was required to stand up. “Something about playing music in shorts, just makes everything a little less serious, right”, he clipped as his wardrobe decision was found out by the audience. As the weather warms up, I’ve been debating the decision myself when it comes to my work meetings, all on video these days. By the end of Joe Pug’s stream, I was feeling positive on the idea of shorts-wearing until Joe’s parting remark, a promise to wear pants next week.

Aside from keeping your pants on, another thing to remember for next week is to follow on The Hotel Cafe’s Instagram account.  Starting Monday, and for the next 20 days, The Hotel Cafe will have special performances streaming on IGTV to celebrate 20years of bringing amazing musical artists to Los Angeles and beyond. Guests include Sara Bareilles, Ingrid Michaelson, James Bay, The Milk Carton Kids, Cary Brothers, Butch Walker, Zane Carney, Garrison Starr, Jay Nash, Brian Wright, Keaton Simons, Tim jones and oh so many many more!

Kristen’s Remote Streaming Concert Calendar: 4/5-4/11

Kristen’s Remote Streaming Concert Calendar: 3/29-4/4

72 hours of continues music streaming courtesy of livexlive plus two days’ worth of panels from WonderCon at Home and the wind-down of Spring Training baseball games made for a full weekend spent in front of the computer.  I’m starting to see in-person events pop up on some venue calendars which makes me wonder how many more nights and weekends will be spent in this way, surrounded by screens. Perhaps I should start preparing my back and knees which have very much benefited from this sitting on the cough version of concert-going.

This coming week features another round of live shows from Paste Magazine with acts such as Nick Waterhouse, The Driver Era, Run River North, Sir Sly, and Cary Brothers. All coming at you from my favorite space, The Hotel Cafe! We’ve also got a livestream from Lucy Spraggan who recently released one of my favorite new albums, Choices.
