No one (in LA) applied to be my concert buddy.
I’d be sad about it if (a) I was still looking for dates for the concerts I’ll be attending later this summer and (b) Sean had not submitted three mix cd’s over the span of a few months. Of course, Sean can’t be my concert buddy since he lives a few thousand miles away. I’m okay with that because whenever I find the padded envelopes in my mailbox after a long and/or crappy day, I know I’ll be treated to several great songs and a clever cover.
I’m set for most concerts this summer, but still can use a buddy for a few shows. List after the jump.
This is just the ticketed stuff. I’m sure I’ll hit up free shows at the Santa Monica Pier and California Plaza too.
