The Calm Before the NYE Storm

The next two nights of music in L.A. (the 29th and 30th) just don’t look that stellar. There really is not too much pulling my heart strings, certainly not for this evening.

Tomorrow, the 30th, is a little bit better. If I were to be in downtown LA around sunset, I’d stick by Pershing Square to catch The Growlers perform during the Spaceland on Ice series, particularly because it is free. Also downtown, Kinky will be at Conga Room, Ne-Yo will be Club Nokia and Mika Miko will be at The Smell.

Personally, I recommend saving up your energy for the 31st. There is so much good music and fun stuff to do in town on NYE I don’t know what I’m going to do?!?!?!
