"Best $2k I Ever Spent!" Jimmy Cliff, Iron & Wine, & Friends Become Eclectic At KCRW's Holiday Bash

by Alex Gilman · December 6, 2011

As we all know, "Holiday Season" is a lot more than just a countdown to December 25th. No, long before you're forced to take a stressful $700 weekend flight to whatever godforsaken golf resort your parents have retired to, you're going to have been bombarded with capital-H Holiday Spirit to within an inch of your life. But at least the holidays are always an excuse to bring a bunch of bands together. On Saturday, the much-beloved KCRW kicked off the holiday concert season with "Are Friends Eclectic?" at the Orpheum.
