It’s that time of year again! While others are making their wish lists on Amazon, those of us in the LA area have been pulling ours from the radio, narrowing down our favorite artists from the last year that we’re hoping will make an appearance at legendary radio station KROQ’s annual Almost Acoustic Christmas event. While the rest of you suckas need to wait until December 25th to find out if your wishes will come true, we found out this morning when KROQ announced this year’s lineup!

Local loves AWOLNATION, Cold War Kids, Silversun Pickups, and The Neighbourhood all made the cut, as did KROQ favorites Cage The Elephant, Of Monsters and Men, Bastille, and Weezer. Check out the full lineup for the event, which will take place on December 12th and 13th at The Forum, and be sure join the KROQ street team to get early access to tickets, which go on sale this Friday, November 20th, at noon PST. Proceeds from this year’s event will benefit Para Los Niños and Al Wooten Jr. Heritage Center, so you’ll be giving back while getting a lot of good music in return!
