Amanda’s SD Concert Calendar 5/7-5/13

No music for me this past week. It was mainly spent finalizing travel plans, working, a work party, and the weekend passed in a hot blur with the exception of brunch on Sunday with friends and an equestrian event on Saturday night.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 5/7-5/13

Posted on by .

If my venture to the Renaissance Faire today taught me anything, it was that I need to work out more.  A little knife throwing and one round of archery arrows and I am sore!  How weird would it look if I busted out some hand weights while waiting for a band to start?

Looking at my list, we’ll have plenty of opportunities to test out my new workout idea.  Last week brought to LA a couple of my top SXSW artists, Boniface and Jade Bird, and this week the SXSW trend continues with Violet Days, Field Report, and Allman Brown.  I’m rather looking forward to re-living more highlights from my favorite week in March.

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!

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. Hopefully, I can get into something this week but May is going to be absolutely crazy for me so I might have to rest up until then…

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.

Amanda’s SD Concert Calendar 4/16-4/22

Posted on by .

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…
