KCRW Presents: Shows You Want To See

Written by

I have no problem talking about New Year’s Eve parties now that October has begun and Christmas decorations are up for sale. And with that lead in, I bring to you the 6th Annual Prohibition New Year’s Eve with Goldroom! Tickets will go on-sale November 3 at 10 am and you’ll want to save yourself a few bucks and buy those tickets early.

While we were apart, a few KCRW Presents shows were confirmed and they are:

Ozomatli at the Lobero Theatre on Thursday, October 19, 2017
Marlon Williams at The Moroccan Lounge on Thursday, November 2, 2017 – *sold out*
Cut Copy at the Shrine Expo Hall on Friday, November 10, 2017
Lo Moon at the Troubadour on Thursday, November 16, 2017
Valerie June at The Regent on Friday, December 1, 2017

Jr Jr (fka Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr) will be playing the El Rey October 19

We hosted a live session with the Detroit duo back in 2015 and you can watch/listen to it here. But buy your tickets too! Those guys are fun and they’ll want you at the show.

I just got word that Real Estate has postponed their October 20 Theatre at Ace Hotel show. It is now scheduled for February 28, 2018. New show details can be found here.

Here’s a huge giveaway heads up for you – it’s DEPECHE MODE! I’ve held a special place in my heart for Martin, Andy and Dave since my senior year in high school. This Saturday during Raul’s show, we’ll be offering KCRW listeners a chance at winning tickets to their Hollywood Bowl show. And if you win, let me know! Because I’ll most likely beg you to take me with you.

If you want to know what other giveaways we have scheduled every day of the year, follow me on Twitter (@acherrymary) for daily updates. I’m fun.
