Lily Allen, The Shins headline ‘Eclectic Evening’

Cold War Kids also play LA gig in April

The Shins, Lily Allen and Cold War Kids will headline ‘A Sounds Eclectic Evening’ on April 14 at the Los Angeles Gibson Amphitheatre.

The annual event, sponsored by National Public Radio station KCRW, will also feature surprise guests. In previous years, these have included Franz Ferdinand and Beck.

The show is curated by KCRW‘s music director and Morning Becomes Eclectic DJ Nic Harcourt. This year’s lineup also includes LA‘s Bitter Sweet, and Mexican-born, Irish-based Spanish guitarists Rodrigo y Gabriela.

Tickets for the show will go on sale February 27 via Ticketmaster and the Gibson Amphitheatre box office. Sales proceeds will go toward preserving KCRW‘s music library.
