MBE Sep. 22: Win Desert Daze tix, meet NRMAL fest-director Moni, accept our deepest gratitude

Hosted by and

Our Fall '22 Pledge Drive is another one for the books. We thank you for your support with a little “Corazon,” from Carole King to get you moving. And we vibe to vintage Thievery Corporation, ahead of their show tonight at the Greek alongside The Avalanches. The club sounds, world flavor and chill beats of the DC-born duo are fitting as we glide towards the end of week. 

Need a little more? How about sultry British-singer-sogwriter Nilüfer Yanya covering PJ Harvey’s “Rid of Me?” Yanya is among the many (many) incredible artists set to perform at this year’s Desert Daze which is just around the corner (Sept 29-Oct 2). Speaking of, it’s about time we hook you up with tickets to see her alongside headliners King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Tame Impala, and Beach House (just announced) as well as KCRW DJs Tyler Boudreaux, Travis Holdcombe, and Jeremy Sole. Enter here for your shot at a pair of GA tickets! 

But that’s not all! We’re also cueing up another gem-filled installment of Global Beat Mexico. Raul Campos is joined by our newest curator, Director of Festival NRMAL Moni Saldaña, who explores Mexico’s progressive, underground pulse from Tijuana to CMDX. 

All of this, plus all the rest awaits so get on in there.
