Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 4/22-4/28

The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books was this weekend and I was swept away by the panels, signings, and general camaraderie found in the book-loving community. It was a festival focused on books/reading, but there was quite a bit of crossover with music, art, travel, and tea (all things I love). Highlight of the weekend was probably meeting Abraham Verghese (Covenant of Water) whose wisdom and eloquence extends beyond the page.

Amanda’s SD Concert Calendar 4/8-4/14

This week was a great reminder about the universality of music and how it’s a force to bring people together for a common experience. This isn’t something that’s a new revelation to me but sometimes it’s something that I need to be reminded of from time to time. I went out this week to catch Fly By Midnight, who give major Parade of Lights (miss them so much!!) vibes. I watched people in the crowd who were familiar with the band feel the music a la The Maine show I went to. I made a new friend while standing out in the cold (yes, it was in the 50s or 60s, it was cold) to be let in and I spent my night at a table with a lovely couple I had met that night. We bonded over mutual feelings of the first band, laughed about life, and had a lovely time together! I hope to run into them at another show sometime in the future. But, it’s a new week, so let’s see what’s up…
