Fall is here, pumpkin spice is back, and September concerts are not slowing down. Our concert calendar is fully stocked with fantastic shows from some of our KCRW favorites, including Kamasi Washington, Toro y Moi,and Hot Chip. 

LA native, Kamasi Washington has two back-to-back shows at the beautiful theater at the Ace Hotel in downtown tonight (Thursday, 9/19) and tomorrow (Friday, 9/20). Check out the session we hosted for him at The Village to see why this is one of our must-see shows. 

Hot Chip is coming to the Shrine on September 27, and heads up, they’ll be on Morning Becomes Eclectic for a live session that very same day. Their latest album A Bath Full of Ecstasy has been on rotation since its June release. Come shoulder shimmy with us on the dancefloor. 



And, this just in! We’ve confirmed self-taught violinist and experimental R&B artist, Sudan Archives at the Moroccan Lounge on November 5th. Her dreamy vocals and violin-infused beats have made her new track "Confessions" a current favorite this month on Morning Becomes Eclectic. Stones Throw also announced news that her upcoming album Sink will be released on November 1st, so we're sure she'll be playing new tracks at the show.

And, of course, you know we give away a ton of tickets to our Presents shows around town. We’ll have tickets in the next few weeks to see Still Woozy at the Fonda, Gary Clark Jr. at the Hollywood Bowl, Brittany Howard at the Theater at the Ace Hotel, and more! So since you have the inside scoop, make sure you’re tuned in to KCRW to win!
