QUICK TAKES

KCRW fundraiser concert canceled

September 06, 2008|Randy Lewis

Public radio station KCRW-FM (89.9) is calling off its annual Sounds Eclectic Evening multi-artist concert fundraiser after shifting the time frame of the event earlier this year from spring to fall.

The show had been slated for Oct. 12 at the 6,200-seat Gibson Amphitheatre with headliner k.d. lang and support acts including Bajofondo, the Duke Spirit and "more artists to be announced and special surprise guests."

But the rest of the bill didn't materialize because the summer concert festival circuit "which was particularly robust this year, created a challenging environment for filling out a seven-band bill," according to a statement the station issued Friday.

Instead, lang's performance will be shifted to the Malibu Performing Arts Center on the same night and it will be presented as part of the station's recently inaugurated KCRW Sessions series. Refunds will be made to those who bought tickets for the Sounds Eclectic Evening show, and they will be given priority to buy seats for the downscaled lang concert, KCRW said. Tickets will be $150 and $250, and proceeds will benefit the station.
