KCRW continues its streak of putting on cool events in the post-Juan Williams fundraising world. Tonight, punk legend and KCRW DJ Henry Rollins will be hosting a benefit for the station at Echoplex. Titled “Henry Rollins – Rare Cuts and Conversation,” the event promises Rollins to come armed with a vault of rare music from his personal collection–which he’ll opine on as the mood strikes him.
“I will play stuff that I am unable to on my regular show, due to the rare nature of the material. I have been planning the set for weeks and am so excited to be able to get some truly unique tracks to your ears,” said Rollins. “Basically, the Echoplex will be my living room, you are the guests and I am playing some of my coolest cuts from decades of gathering, complete with the story around the track and its acquisition.”
Sounds intriguing. Show starts at 8. More info here.
