KCRW Announces Two Holiday Benefit Shows at the Orpheum Theatre!

Written by

At KCRW, we like to throw parties. Especially parties where some of our favorite bands play music and we can invite our fans to join in on the fun. And what better time to celebrate than the holiday season?

In early December, we will bring together some of our favorite artists for two nights of music at the intimate Orpheum Theatre, a newly-restored Downtown landmark celebrating it’s 85th anniversary this year.

The “Are Friends Eclectic?” concerts will take place on Friday, December 2 and Saturday, December 3 with different lineups each night PLUS  special guests. The shows are a benefit for the station and proceeds will go towards supporting our programming.

Reggae legend Jimmy Cliff will headline on December 2, joined by the joyful pop sounds of Brett Dennen, LA’s favorite world fusion band Fool’s Gold, the slightly psychedelic, occasionally funky White Denim, the epic chamber pop of Oklahoma’s Other Lives – who just last week opened for Bon Iver – and the sensual and spiritual stylings of Mia Doi Todd.

The December 3 lineup features folk-rock renaissance man Sam Beam with his band Iron & Wine, along with the ear-pleasing harmonies of local favorites The Belle Brigade, jaw-dropping guitar and vocals from UK blues diva Anna Calvi, darling Malaysian pop crooner Zee Avi, and the homespun retro-country sound of The Secret Sisters, who have opened for Paul Simon and count T Bone Burnett and Jack White amongst their fans.

Tickets go on sale to KCRW members first on Tuesday, October 4 at 10am on KCRW.com. Tickets become available to the general public beginning Tuesday, October 11 at 10am. Ticket prices vary based on seating, from $55 to $200. It’s an all ages show.
