Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 8/26-9/1

Posted on by .

This week’s calendar was a bit difficult for me to put
together because I couldn’t quite accept the fact that next Sunday is the start
of September. You might noticed that my Sunday is a bit blank. Honestly (and I apologize
for this) flipping those venue calendars over to September to see Sunday was giving
me too much anxiety so I just didn’t. Let’s just say that September is an
important month for me, work-wise, and what I can accomplish in the next week
will set the tone for the rest of the year.

There is a lot to celebrate in this so called last week of
summer. Wednesday is the last night of our High Voltage residency at The Silverlake
Lounge and we’ve got Rags & Ribbons so you know it’ll be a good one. I’m
also looking forward to Monday night at The Hotel Cafe and The Shakers et al at
The Troubadour on Saturday.

Last week I got to see The Silent Comedy twice. This is just
what I needed. Now, I can’t stop listening to their new EP, Friends Divide and every time the TV is
on, I hear them singing to me over the promos for Strike Back. I anticipate the
cravings to start up any day now. It’s always so bitter sweet when your
favorite bands get too big to see on a regular basis. At least I still have
bands like Irontom, Tournament of Hearts, and Queen Caveat, all playing show
this week. I highly recommend getting out to see these bands before they too only
come through town a couple times a year…

And once again it’s Sunday night. It doesn’t feel like I’ve
had much of a weekend as I spent most of it sitting in front of my computer,
working. I watched three movies today: The
Bumblebee Flies Away
, Girl
Interrupted
, and Der Krieger und die Kaiserin (The Princess and The Warrior). All of them largely take place in
some sort of hospital or mental institution. I found myself envious of the patients
which I suppose tells you something of my current mental state.  Hopefully next week won’t be so overwhelming
and I will be able to get to some shows (my much needed respite in this storm
of life).

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 7/8-7/14

Posted on by .

It was recently pointed out to me that one of my current
band obsessions, twenty one pilots, has music released before they came onto my
radar with their most recent album, Vessel.
Let’s just say that this past week had a very piano-rap sound to it. I am also
considering hunting down tickets to Fall Out Boy’s arena tour primarily to see
twenty one pilots open.

As for top show picks this week, Crash Kings are having
their CD release show on Wednesday at The Troubadour. I haven’t heard too much
from this band lately but it looks like they are gearing up for a come-back and
I can’t wait to see it all unfold.

Also, be sure to stop by The House of Blues Foundation Room
on Tuesday night for a High Voltage show featuring some of my favorites like
Lelia Broussard and The Filthy Souls. Speaking of High Voltage Magazine, we’re
starting to send out newsletters to keep everyone up to date on all our events,
reviews, and general happenings. Let me know if you’d like to be on that list
too!

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 6/24-6/30

Posted on by .

I’ve been reading a lot of books lately and I’m being
reminded why this is not always the best idea. I love music because every song
offers a little 3-5 minute escape into another world. A good book, on the other
hand, can get me lost for days or weeks at a time. Then it’s like I’m
straddling two worlds, the one that I’m in and the one from the book that my
mind holds onto even when I’m not staring at the page. Sadly, as much as I want
to return to a vampire-filled Elizabethan London, a magic circus in Victorian
London, and a small town on the coast of Maine (okay, I’m in the middle of
three different books), I have work to do! I had the pleasure of going to
Warped Tour last Thursday as a videographer and this footage will not edit
itself (pictures to come soon!).

Speaking of Warped, one of my favorite bands from that day,
The Material, is playing The Roxy next Sunday. That, and of course the last
night of Queen Caveat’s Monday night Satellite residency are the shows I’m most
looking forward to next week.
