Summer Nights’ Backyard Party @ KCRW HQ
Featuring Henry Rollins (DJ set)
KCRW DJs Dan Wilcox + Eric J. Lawrence
Saturday, August 18
7:00pm – 11:00pm

This brand-new, three-concert series is free, all-ages, and outdoors, and takes place in the backyard of KCRW’s new home at Santa Monica College’s CMD Campus

And your summer nights are about to get hotter…
For our final Backyard Party of 2018, get ready for a blistering DJ set by Henry Rollins.

In describing Henry Rollins, the tendency is to try to squeeze as many labels as possible into a single sentence. Entertainment Weekly’s list includes “Punk Rock icon. Spoken word poet. Actor. Author. DJ. Rollins has toured the world as a spoken word artist, as frontman for both Rollins Band and Black Flag and as a solitary traveler with insatiable curiosity, favoring road-less-traveled locales in places such as Nepal, Sri Lanka, Siberia, North Korea, South Sudan and Iran.
He can be heard on KCRW on Sundays from 8pm – 10pm and on-demand.
