This year Los Angeles alternative radio station, KROQ, will be hosting their Almost Acoustic Christmas at The Forum December 10 & 11. The two night festival will feature performances by Blink-182, Kings Of Leon, M83, Green Day, Weezer, Beck, Bastille and many more! Ticket proceeds from the two night show will benefit local charities Para Los Niños and the Al Wooten Jr. Heritage Center.
KROQ’s Almost Acoustic Christmas started in 1989 originally as KROQ’s Xmas Bash. The concert series immediately saw success and became increasingly bigger and better with each year starting at the Gibson Amphitheater and eventually graduated to The Forum.
The first night features performances by Blink-182, Kings Of Leon, Jimmy Eat World, AFI, M83, X Ambassadors, Grouplove and The Strumbellas, and will benefit Para Los Niños. The charity was founded on Skid Row in 1980 and has been working to break the poverty cycle in Los Angeles. Para Los Niños is a non-profit family service agency providing social services like education, family support, mental health services, encouraging parent engagement and community building.
Night two features performances by Green Day, Beck, Weezer, Bastille, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, Phantogram, Bishop Briggs and The Head and The Heart, benefiting Al Wooten Jr. Heritage Center. This charity is a non-profit youth center named in honor of the founder’s son who was killed in a drive-by shooting in 1989. The Al Wooten Jr. Heritage Center works to provide free after school and low-cost summer programs for children, as well as providing a safe environment committed to revitalizing and empowering the South Central Los Angeles community.
