MBE Jan. 4: Rainy day eclecticism, legendary birthday twins, Iron Throne vibes

Hosted by and

Dig beyond your standard rainy day fare with something a little more eclectic. We’re digging in on Taiwanese singer Kelly Tien’s 1971 cut “Waiting for You in the Rain,” grooves that’ll warm you up from the inside out via NYC duo Lion Babe, and a powerful folk punch from Nigerian-American artist Annahsasia. Plus, did you know that Michael Stipe (R.E.M) and Beth Gibbons (Portishead) are birthday twins?? Well, you do now, so let’s celebrate.

And winter may be fully settled in across the country, but we’re here to recall the days of, “Winter is coming.” The Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience is hitting the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday, May 13. We anticipate a great thaw by then, and you claiming your rightful place in one of the seats that we are giving away to partake in the majesty.
