LOS ANGELES, July 2, 2024 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — On July 20 and 27, KCRW and Metro Art will team up for two special nights of music from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at the historic Union Station in downtown Los Angeles. KCRW DJs Jeremy Sole and Chris Douridas will perform dynamic sets for the first installment, while the following Saturday features a special performance by sibling-led LA-based jazz-folk band, The South Hill Experiment, amplified by KCRW DJs Raul Campos and SiLVA. Each weekend, guests can visit pop-up bars for light refreshments and alcoholic beverages while dancing the night away in one of LA’s architectural jewels.

“Guests will be treated to electrifying performances by KCRW’s renowned DJs and local band, The South Hill Experiment at Union Station as we reunite with our friends at KCRW,” shared Heidi Zeller, Senior Manager, Cultural Planning at LA Metro. “We look forward to a transcendent summer evening of energetic live music.”

“We couldn’t be more excited about partnering with Metro Art to throw an epic dance party in one of LA’s iconic locations, Union Station. And what’s almost as good as the cool music and vibes? The fact that it’s the easiest one to get to…just take Metro,” said Nathalie Hill, KCRW Chief Audience Officer and Summer Nights Field Guide Ranger.

About The South Hill Experiment 
The South Hill Experiment (S/H/E) is the band of brothers Baird and Gabe Acheson, raised in Baltimore and now based in Los Angeles. Both accomplished artists and producers in their own right, the brothers built S/H/E as a place — their warehouse studio on South Hill St., Los Angeles— and as a state of mind: making music as catharsis. Last year kicked off S/H/E’s trilogy of LPs, with MOONSHOTS (LP1) marking the duo’s ethereal beginnings, and SUNSTRIKES (LP2) introducing guests such as Jeff Parker and earning a co-sign from the legendary David Byrne. March 2024 saw the release of an even more collaborative EP, South Hill & Friends, with features from Karriem Riggins, Maxo, Buck Raines, and Sofía Campos. To promote these projects, the brothers have pulled a variety of stunts, including a 24-hour live-streamed jam, free DIY rooftop shows, and running an actual marathon for a music video. After sold out dates in Los Angeles and New York, a live session on KCRW, and the band’s SXSW debut, the brothers are gearing up for the final installment of their trilogy and most ambitious project to date, EARTHBREAKS (LP3).
