Come visit our NEW backyard! We’re throwing 3 Summer Nights parties
and we can’t wait to have you at the new KCRW HQ –  located  on Santa Monica College’s CMD Campus.

You won’t want to miss our opening night on August 4th when Ali Shaheed Muhammad (of A Tribe Called Quest) and composer Adrian Younge’s latest project The Midnight Hour performs as an 18-piece band.

When two of hip-hop’s most accomplished composers get together you know the results are going to be special.  Make sure to listen to the duo’s long awaited album as The Midnight Hour – carefully constructed and masterful, it showcases their songwriting ability like never before.
