Los Angeles-area public radio station KCRW is putting on a benefit show November 22. Held at the Universal Amphitheatre, it'll be the station's second annual A Sounds Eclectic Evening gig.
Taking its name from the station's "Morning Becomes Eclectic" morning show, the benefit concert features a bill much like what's found on the radio program - an eclectic mix of music genres from all over the globe.
Irish singer/songwriter and recent winner of the Shortlist Music Prize Damien Rice will perform, as will all 25-plus members of The Polyphonic Spree.
Newbie Welsh songstress Jem - whose album is currently the station's most requested - will hit the stage for her first U.S. show. SoCal favorites Jurassic 5 will bring the beats, while Gary Jules will spin a few yarns.
For the platinum and gold-level subscribers, Cut Chemist and Felix Da Housecat will put on an exclusive after-party show. Check out KCRW's Web site for more information on how to get those tickets, at kcrw.com/see3.
Tickets to KCRW members are on sale through October 18, with the public sale starting on the 20th through Ticketmaster. Prices range from $30 up to $250.
