KCRW Presents: Closing out “Showvember”

“Showvember” comes to a close in 2 weeks, but we are already planning your 2018 calendar and I’m just as confused as you are as to how we got to 2018 so fast. Here are our newly confirmed KCRW Presents shows:

Giraffage at The Fonda on Wednesday, November 29
Ethan Gruska at The Bootleg on Tuesday, January 9, 16, 23 and 30
Wolf Parade at The Observatory on Sunday, January 21
Tune-Yards at The El Rey on Wednesday, February 21 and Thursday, February 22
Dancers and Divas / Orpheus and Eurydice at Music Center at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion on Friday, March 9 through Sunday, March 11

Your big giveaway news to look forward is…..U2!!!!! How many exclamation marks is enough for this surprise? Probably more than I typed, but you get the point. I’m excited, they’re excited, and you too are excited. Jason Bentley will be giving away tickets to their May 15th Forum show during MBE this coming Monday (and that’s pretty darn great).
*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.
