KCRW Presents: Tricks and Ticket Treats

Written by

I know you’re freaking out over the James Blake shows in December. I am too. That’s why it’s really important that you focus, plan ahead and buy those tickets when they go on-sale to the general public this Friday. If you manage to forgot all that, we’ll be offering tickets during MBE tomorrow morning! So there’s your warning.

There are two other shows which we recently confirmed as KCRW Presents concerts, obligatory list here:

The Clientele at the Teragram Ballroom on Tuesday, November 14, 2017
Niia at the Moroccan Lounge on Tuesday, November 28, 2017
James Blake at Cathedral Sanctuary at Immanuel Presbyterian on Friday, December 8 and Saturday, December 9, 2017

Jr Jr have cancelled their El Rey show on October 19 due to illness. Official band statement: “Due to illness, the JR JR show has been cancelled. Tickets can be refunded at point of purchase. We are very sorry and hope to see you all again soon.” Feel better, guys.

It’s another weekend full of hot shows and (hopefully) cool nights. LCD Soundsystem will have a 5 night run at the Palladium in November, but we have tickets for you now (well, as close to now as free tickets come)! This Sunday on Gary Calamar’s show (6pm PT), he’ll be giving away tickets to see LCD Soundsystem so make sure you tune in!*

*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.
