A Sounds Eclectic Evening

As we prepare for the sixth annual Sounds Eclectic Evening, I'm reminded of some of the stunning performances of previous years: Ozomatli, Norah Jones, Beck with the Flaming Lips, Coldplay...the list goes on. This year, we welcome LA area bands Bitter:Sweet and Cold War Kids along with wildly eclectic Rodrigo y Gabriela and rising stars, Lily Allen and The Shins. All artists who got their first US airplay at KCRW. I'm sure there'll be some surprises as well, so join us on April 14 and celebrate the spirit of free form radio.
