For the first time, Los Angeles public radio station KCRW (89.9FM and KCRW.com) will shine a spotlight on our most well-known DJ Henry Rollins, in a one-of-a-kind live event.
On Thursday, December 9 at 8pm, KCRW will present an exclusive listening party at the Echoplex which will serve as a benefit for the station. Rollins has been searching his musical vaults and will come armed with top selections from his personal music collection – some of which have never been heard before — to share with fans. In a living room-style setting, anecdotes in tow, he’ll share a night of unforgettable tunes and stories.
“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.”
Absolutely no photography or recording of any kind will be permitted. In fact, not even KCRW will be recording the event or presenting it at a later time on demand.
Only those in attendance will share this special evening. Truly one-time only!
Rollins has toured the world as a spoken word artist, frontman for both Rollins Band and Black Flag and – without a microphone – as a solitary traveler with insatiable curiosity bypassing the resorts in favor of places like Siberia and Senegal, or Burma and Bangladesh. He is also constantly at work as an actor, author of more than 20 books, and running his publishing company and record label 2.13.61.
Henry joined the DJ team at KCRW in March 2009 and can be heard live on Saturdays from 6-8p PST and in the archives here: http://www.kcrw.com/henryrollins
