KCRW announced over the weekend that it is cutting its ambitious “Are Friends Eclectic?” benefit series from two nights to one. Jimmy Cliff was originally supposed to headline a December 2 show at the Orpheum Theatre while Iron and Wine would headline the following night. Instead, the two will combine forces for a lone December 3 event.
“Early ticket sales for the first night were slow,” says KCRW music director Jason Bentley, “so we decided to make it one blockbuster night of KCRW music that will blow your mind.”
We take Bentley for his word that the new lineup will be solid. KCRW has proven it knows how to throw a party. Its recent Halloween “Masquerade” party raised $60,000 for the station.
