Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 1/23-1/29

Posted on by .

Last week was a phenomenal week of shows. I believe I was out every night save the weekend (I much prefer staying in on the weekends anyway). My weekend was also fairly “epic” but in another sense. I made my third batch of 2011 mix CDs while watching the third Lord of the Rings movie (Return of The King) and I started re-reading the third book in the Inheritance cycle. I rather enjoy retreating into worlds full of elves and dragons where epic battles are won and heroes come from the unlikeliest of sources. And as I listen to Annie Lennox sing “Into the West” I am disheartened at the thought of returning to my somewhat less glorious real life.

Life does have a few treats in store for me this week, however. Bonnaroo highlight (and ’11 mix artist) Cory Chisel will be in town Tuesday night at The Echo, San Diego faves, Endoxi, will be rockin’ The Roxy Thursday, and LA love Queen Caveat is back in action with their first show of the new year Friday night at The Viper Room.

Is it Monday again already? My days are becoming a blur. This summer is proving to be a hot one and all I want to do after my morning ride is come home and pass out. Which is what I did. So, if this seems a tad incoherent, I apologize. I might still be in that groggy phase after you are awoken too early. Another reason my days are all a blur is San Diego has a super huge event coming up this week which I’m attending. Perhaps you’ve heard of a little thing called Comic Con? No? Well, look it up.

I don’t know about you folks but I had a lovely weekend. I was able to make it out to the Bro-Am and the Bro-Am After party where I had the 90’s come crashing back thanks to Johnny Rzeznik. Little Hurricane was in the house as well and were wonderful as always! Unfortunately, I stepped on something at the beach on Saturday and ended up with a nasty sting/bite. I don’t know what caused it but I know it’s red and it’s angry. So I’m spending my Monday nursing an angry foot. Yay!
