KCRW to Throw Massive Dance Party @ Park Plaza Hotel
Let it be known that April 11, 2009 shall be your chance to see damn near every single music-spinning radio face the Santa Monica station has to offer at one place and one time, including Jason, Garth and the newly-added face of Henry Rollins:
On Saturday, April 11, KCRW (89.9FM and KCRW.com) will host RadioActive, a Spring dance party featuring the station’s own skilled selectors at The Legendary Park Plaza in Downtown Los Angeles, a beautiful space that is not normally open to the public. Tickets to RadioActive go on sale to members only on Thursday, March 12 and will be available to the public starting Tuesday, March 17.
Tickets are $35 in advance and will be available at KCRW.com/radioactive. All proceeds will go towards supporting music programming at the Santa Monica-based public radio station.
This is the first time KCRW has put on a dance event featuring station DJ’s even though many of them have headlined some of the biggest venues in the world independently — from the dance mecca of Ibiza and Central Park’s Summer Stage in New York to Coachella and the Winter Music Conference.
“All of our DJs are immersed in the live music scene and this is a chance to rally their considerable talents and fans for the station they all call home. We rarely come together in one place at one time and the staggeringly beautiful Park Plaza is the best place to do it,” said KCRW Music Director and host of Morning Becomes Eclectic Jason Bentley.
The venue will feature four unique, themed rooms:
Dub House Disco Ballroom – Jason Bentley, Raul Campos, Liza Richardson, Jason Eldredge
Neo-Soul Streetbeat Sound System - Garth Trinidad, Jeremy Sole, Anthony Valadez, Mathieu Schreyer, Aaron Byrd
World Folktronic Jazz Lounge – Henry Rollins, Anne Litt, Mario Cotto, Eric J. Lawrence, Jason Kramer
Grand Voodoo Salon – Tom Schnabel, Chris Douridas, Dan Wilcox, Gary Calamar, Michael Barnes
