KCRW Announces Free Jim James Solo Acoustic Concert


Santa Monica-based public radio station KCRW will host a “Summer Nights Backyard Party” at its new headquarters this Saturday, August 11. The event will feature a solo acoustic performance from My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James.

James will be “exploring songs stripped down as they first occurred in their natural habitat — just voice and guitar” as per KCRW’s announcement. KCRW DJs Liza Richardson and Chris Douridas will also take part in the event which is free and open to those of all ages. Food trucks selected by Evan Kleiman of KCRW’s Good Food will be serving eats, while summer cocktail options will be sold. Additionally, the event will feature the “Beats Swap Meet” vinyl pop-up shop.

KCRW’s headquarters is located on Santa Monica College’s CMD Campus.
