De La Soul with Quantic (Live)

Sound in Focus Concerts
PAST EVENT: Sat, Aug 01, 2015

For Concert Attendees:

Prompt arrival is encouraged as entry is granted on a first-come, first-served basis, until we reach capacity. RSVP DOES NOT GUARANTEE ENTRY. Be sure to listen to KCRW (89.9) or follow us on Twitter for real-time updates on capacity the day of the show.

Groundbreaking Long Island trio De La Soul have been leaders in the hip-hop scene since their founding over 25 years ago. They have a new album on the horizon and the Kickstarter campaign to fund it made headlines in The New York Times due to the overwhelming response from fans.

Opening the show will be prolific musician and DJ Will Holland, aka Quantic. He will give a special performance of classic and brand new Quantic sounds with a 10-piece band, including guest singers from Colombia, Brazil and Los Angeles.

The evening will be hosted by KCRW DJ Garth Trinidad.

Inspired by our Emerging exhibit, the Sound in Focus concert series builds on the success of KCRW and the Annenberg Foundation’s two previous concert collaborations, Country in the City and Who Shot Rock & Roll Live. Held at Century Park in Century City, the four summer shows of Sound in Focus offer a different story and musical identity, reflecting the interests of the LA community. Each concert is free to attend, but RSVP is required for entry.

Sound in Focus is presented by the Annenberg Foundation and KCRW
