SANTA MONICA COLLEGE Music/News KCRW/LOS ANGLES will celebrate the holiday season by hosting two nights of music at the intimate ORPHEUM THEATRE, a beautifully-restored downtown landmark celebrating its 85th anniversary this year.
Dubbed the "Are Friends Eclectic?" concerts, KCRW members will get the first crack at tickets for the DECEMBER 2nd and 3rd shows now. Tickets will be available to the general public starting OCTOBER 11th.
Reggae legend JIMMY CLIFF will headline on DECEMBER 2nd, joined by BRETT DENNON, FOOL'S GOLD, WHITE DENIM, OTHER LIVES and MIA DOI TODD.
The DECEMBER 3rd lineup features IRON & WINE, along with THE BELLE BRIGADE, ANNA CALVI, ZEE AVI and THE SECRET SISTERS.
"When envisioning a holiday concert to celebrate KCRW, I wanted to bring it back to basics and create an event that resonated with the spirit of the season. It’s simply a stellar lineup of artists we’re really excited about, capturing an intimacy to stir the soul," said KCRW MD and "Morning Becomes Eclectic" host JASON BENTLEY.
Proceeds from both events will benefit KCRW.
