Watch the KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas Webcast Tonight (Dec 14)

KROQ FM-The World Famous KROQ

I had fun watching this last year with a number of other forum members, this year's schedule is even more impressive in my opinion. Here's tonight schedule (Pacific Time Zone):

I've got to go to a study group thing tonight, so I'll only be able to watch the last few, but since my favorite is second to last, that's well worth it.

I'm curious what Vampire Weekend sounds like live, so I'll try to tune in if I'm near the computer at 9.

The webcast has started, Vampire Weekend on in about 30. I'm surprised more people aren't all over this, I shoulda mentioned the artists playing in the thread title.

Apparently there's going to be a "special guest" again. Last year it was The Killers, I assume and hope it will be some one worth while again.

It sounds cool, but my computer is crappy and it's annoying and difficult to try and watch/listen to stuff on the internet for me.

I had the same issue last year, I watched it on the slowest weakest connection they had available, it worked fine. (it can use Windows Media Player if the normal streaming has problems)

Hey lookie here, I didn't have to miss any of it.


I don't know anything by VW, I've been meaning to check them out, sounds like they would be something I'd like.

The first VW song was a brand new one, pretty awesome too.

Is this what they sound like studio for the most part? I think I'm willing to check out the album.

You can stream it on Windows Media Player as well. Click on the "Problems with Silverlight? Watch with Windows Media Player" section on the bottom.

Yeah that wasn't working either, but it looks like I'm up and running again
