MBE June 29: Pet sounds, synth-pop spirit, giveaways galore

Hosted by and

Thundercat, Gorillaz, Koalas… oh my!

No, you didn’t follow the yellow brick road to the LA Zoo, you’re just tuned to a particularly animalistic episode of MBE! KCRW mega-faves Gorillaz and Thundercat are still in heavy rotation thanks to the megawatt power of their collaborative single “Cracker Island.” You’ll also be treated to the mighty turntablism of Kid Koala, and forthcoming guest Genesis Owusu’s stand out track “Black Dog.” 

Plus there are some killer giveaways. Our Box at the Bowl will have you feeling all the feels, as you could find yourself up close and personal as A-ha singer Morten Harket hits that indelible “Take On Me” high note. Or you’ll find yourself checking out Kraftwerk 3-D at the Shrine. Any way you slice it, you win
