Don’t blink, because if you do, you may miss June! It’s just going by that fast. If you’re anything like us, you already missed KCRW’s “Summer Nights” kick-off concert on June 2, but don’t dismay, another concert is on its way.
On Saturday, June 16, One Colorado will present shey baba. This Los Angeles-born singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist spent two years in relative isolation patiently making what would become his stunning debut album, Requiem. With an incredible body of work now complete, shey baba is ready to share something very special. Also part of the evening will be KCRW’s DJ Chris Douridas, who will open and close the evening.
KCRW’s Summer Nights features free, all-ages, outdoor shows throughout the summer to communities in the greater Los Angeles area and beyond, featuring the best emerging artists and KCRW’s stellar DJs.
Besides the concerts in Pasadena, KCRW will take music to the California African American Museum, Union Station, the Hammer Museum, Chinatown, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Santa Barbara.
