‘Tis the season to cuddle under a weighted blanket, listen to your favorite records, and drink some hot cocoa. But, don’t get too cozy, because you’ll miss some great live music from Bedouine, Allah-las, and more this holiday season! 

Before we dive in to December – a special announcement for next month. KCRW Presents Innovative Leisure’s 10 Year Anniversary Weekender at Pappy & Harriet’s on Friday, January 17 and Saturday, January 18. The LA-based label will be celebrating 10 years with performances and DJ sets from their roster of heavy-hitters. Enjoy the weekend in Pioneertown and catch sets from Claude Fontaine, Hanni El Khatib, Nick Waterhouse, Nosaj Thing and special guests! Tickets are on sale now but head over to our new giveaway portal for your chance to win weekend passes

Here are shows coming up in the next couple weeks:

On Wednesday, December 4, the Wiltern will host a special screening of “The Biggest Little Farm” with the Hollywood Chamber Orchestra performing Jeff Beal’s score, live to picture and followed by a panel discussion with the composer and filmmakers.
