KCRW at Sonos Studio NYC
The LA public radio station will host an evening with Mikky Ekko and Flight Facilities on October 1
LOS ANGELES, CA (September 23, 2014) Public radio station KCRW has partnered with Sonos on a series of live events in Los Angeles and will host an event featuring Nashville singer-songwriter Mikky Ekko and the Aussie production duo Flight Facilities as part of a week-long series of programs at Sonos Studio NYC.
It will take place on Wednesday, October 1 at NeueHouse in the Flatiron District.
There are limited press tickets available (please reply to this email), however it is not open to the public.
The show will be hosted by KCRW Music Director Jason Bentley and recorded for future broadcast on Morning Becomes Eclectic and his Saturday night dance showcase Metropolis.
Soulful pop singer Mikky Ekko seems destined for stardom. He first hit the charts when he sang on Rihanna’s 2013 track “Stay” and is forging his own path as a solo artist with his new single “Smile”.
KCRW has been a longtime supporter of Flight Facilities and recently premiered the new single from the band’s highly-anticipated forthcoming full length. They also performed on the station’s SXSW showcase in 2013.
KCRW last visited the East Coast to host a sold-out show with Cut Copy, in collaboration with NPR Music, celebrating the relaunch of Metropolis.
In Los Angeles, KCRW has hosted performances from everyone from Little Dragon to Pretty Lights at Sonos Studio. Recent sessions with Jose James and Banks will be airing on Morning Becomes Eclectic on October 3 and October 13, respectively.
Sonos Studio is an acoustically designed gallery that explores the intersection of music, art and technology. During their weeklong stint in NYC (September 30-October 5), they will also feature sound installations, creative workshops, film screenings, engaging discussions, and listening parties.
