Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 8/12-8/18

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 if you’re into summer festivals, don’t miss out on Echo
Park Rising next weekend.

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 3/18-3/24

SXSW is done! I am sad. I hope you were able to catch up with our recaps. You can find out what we’ve been up to at the following links:

Once I get back, I’m aiming to put together a list and mix of my favorite SXSW artists…plus, a giant photo album that I’ll be posting here:

we head back to CA and I’m looking forward to jumping right back into the swing of things with some shows. My pick of the week would be going to the Imagine Dragons show with Nico Vega and Atlas Genius (what a line-up!!) but I don’t have a ticket to that sold out show. Instead, I’ll direct you to Tuesday night where we have a plethora of great musical options. Since Everything Everything weren’t able to be at SXSW, I think that’s where I’ll be. I’m also looking forward to both The Rubens and Finish Ticket at The Hotel Cafe Thursday night.
