KCRW Summer Nights Kicks Off Saturday, June 6
at One Colorado in Old Pasadena
with De Lux and KCRW DJ Dan Wilcox
KCRW’s free, all-ages, outdoor music series Summer Nights returns for a 6th year, kicking off on Saturday, June 6, with a performance by LA’s De Lux and a DJ set from Dan Wilcox at One Colorado.
Earning comparisons to the Talking Heads, Duran Duran and the Psychadelic Furs, De Lux’s post-disco dance-punk conjures the best of the ‘80s with a decidedly modern flair. The evening begins at 7:30 pm with a DJ set from KCRW’s Dan Wilcox, and continues with De Lux performing tracks from their upcoming album “Generation,” to be released June 23 via Innovative Leisure. Be sure to come early because Make Music Pasadena is happening as well.
KCRW returns to One Colorado on Saturday, June 20 with a performance by the quintessentially Californian outfit Cayucas, whose versatile tunes effortlessly migrate from sun-kissed and carefree pop, to melancholic, emotional intensity. The group will be previewing tracks from their upcoming album “Dancing at the Blue Lagoon,” set for release on June 23 on Secretly Canadian. KCRW DJ Marion Hodges opens the show with a DJ set at 7:30 pm.
Both concerts take place in One Colorado’s charming courtyard amidst the historic buildings of Old Pasadena. One Colorado spans an entire city block, between Colorado Boulevard, Union, Delacey and Fair Oaks.
With dozens of free, outdoor, all-ages concerts that are open to the public, KCRW’s signature series, Summer Nights has reached hundreds of thousands of music fans over the years. The series also gives KCRW DJs a chance to bring their eclectic musical tastes out of our basement studios and into the community.
