The return of KROQ-FM 106.7’s Almost Acoustic Christmas is almost here, and it’s bringing The Black Keys, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Death Cab for Cutie and more to the Kia Forum in Inglewood on Saturday, December 10th!.

KROQ-FM 106.7 announced today that its Almost Acoustic Christmas concert will return in 2022 after a three year hiatus. The Los Angeles-based rock station revealed that Imagine Dragons, The Black Keys, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Death Cab For Cutie, Jimmy Eat World, Yungblud, Måneskin, The Interrupters and Wet Leg will all perform at the 2022 Almost Acoustic Christmas taking place Saturday

Kevin Weatherly, who has been with KROQ since 1992 and is now the station’s senior vice president of programming, said during a phone interview that they are thrilled to be back at Kia Forum. He stated that it had been a priority of his to bring back Acoustic Christmas ever since he returned to the station in June–three years after leaving for Spotify. Weatherly also noted that another beloved Southern California tradition of theirs, Weenie Roast, could make a comeback as well.

Given the COVID-19 shutdown of live events and many personnel changes at the station, booking acts for next year’s concert was challenging, Weatherly said. With so many artists wanting to tour at once and needing to make up concerts postponed from 2020 and 2021, he noted that it usually takes two days to book the lineup but is proud of securing a solid single-night show instead.


“Our goal is to always curate a show that reflects the state of current alternative music. Bands like Wet Leg, The Interrupters and Måneskin are newer to the scene and taste of what’s up-and-coming. Then you have staples like The Black Keys, Imagine Dragons, Death Cab For Cutie and Yeah Yeah Yeahs who could play at the Forum by themselves. So we just try to put together a lineup that’s reflective of what KROQ represents today.”

He continued by saying that it was significant for the station to uphold the tradition of Acoustic Christmas by donating a section of the proceeds to surrounding charities. This year’s chosen charities are Para Los Niños and the Al Wooten Jr. Heritage Center, both based in Los Angeles area.

“Our initial goal with Acoustic Christmas was always to give back what we could to those less fortunate in our community,” he said.
