You don’t have to be a skinny jean wearing, ray-ban donning hipster to appreciate the fact that LA’s KCRW (89.9 FM) has impeccable taste when it comes to music. That’s why it should come to no surprise that their first ever holiday shows boasts some truly freakout-worthy names: indie-veterans Iron & Wine and reggae legend Jimmy Cliff each headline a separate night, supported by a roster of some of the most buzzed about bands from all over the globe. There’s LA’s own world fusion ensemble Fool’s Gold, Oklahoma’s dreamy chamber pop group Other Lives, and the UK’s husky-voiced blues goddess Anna Calvi– just to name a few.
The party is a two-night event, with different bands performing on each night (check out the complete line-up below) and is the perfect way to kick off the holiday season- good music and cheer to all!
