Go: Moja Moja Pre-Grammy Brunch

garth-trinidad-kcrw

Each year, KCRW’s Garth Trinidad hosts the Moja Moja Pre-Grammy Brunch that features live performances by an array of up and coming artists at the regal W Hollywood.  We go whenever we can because it’s for a good cause.  Proceeds go towards supporting Oxfam America (a former client).  Also, for more selfish reasons, we always come away with a great play list.  And lastly, our friend Ramona Wright puts on a great show and Garth Trinidad is pretty dope.  In years past, Garth broke Janelle Monae at the Pre-Grammy Brunch.  After her performance at the Brunch, we heard her everywhere.  Chilean rapper  Ana Tijoux performed live.  Dreamy, moody Swedes Little Dragon rocked the room too.  All in all, it’s a a good show for a good cause, and it’s *almost* like going to the Grammys!

This year, the line-up includes pianist Chloe Flower, Chicano Batman, Yuna, and Fink.  Also, Adrian Younge Presents the Delfonics featuring William Hart.  Not to mention a DJ set by Garth and a special appearance by funk legend and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer George Clinton who will be picking up a special achievement award.

Tickets can be purchased here.  If the $75 tag is too pricy, then just buy a Darfuri woman a much-needed stove.  Support the Darfur Stoves Project.  $25 = 1 stove for 1 woman to feed her family.
