Amanda’s SD Concert Calendar 6/4-6/13

First thing you will notice about this particular listing is that it’s for a week and a half instead of the standard week. “Why,” you ask. One word. Bonnaroo!!!! Kristen and I are heading out to Tennessee for the festival and have some post Bonnaroo activities planned as well. I’m flying back on Wednesday because it was a cheaper alternative than Tuesday and because I don’t spend enough time in Nashville. But there’s still lots of stuff to do in SD while I’m away.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 6/4-6/12

You’ll notice this week’s list is a bit…elongated. Well, that’s because I’ll be at Bonnaroo over the weekend without internet.  I don’t think I’m even going to take my computer (gasp).  I’ll be back Tuesday and hopefully fill you in on everything. In the meantime, there are a couple acts I’d really recommend checking out this week. If you didn’t manage to snag tickets to one of Ben Howard’s two sold out shows at The Troubadour, the English singer-songwriter and one of my SXSW mix picks, will also be doing a free show at Amoeba Records on Monday.

Another treat this week is that Joe Firstman is in town with The Cordovas. They are playing several shows. Today (Sunday) at The Franklin Village Festival, Tuesday at The Hotel Cafe, and Wednesday at Saint Rocke. Who knows when Joe will be back, so I wouldn’t miss out!
