For the past 22 years, local alternative rock station KROQ has been organizing annual events around the holiday season, dubbed “Almost Acoustic Christmas” (which, during the live performances, translates to “not acoustic at all”).   These events showcase the groups that are typically played on the station.  Today, KROQ announced the lineup for night one of the two day event.  Performing at the Gibson Ampitheatre on December 10th will be Young The Giant, 311, Social Distortion, New Found Glory, Incubus, Chevelle, Bush, and Blink-182.  These choices are not surprising, as they compose the 90s and 2000s-era bands that have consistently earned significant airplay on alt-rock stations around the country, especially KROQ.  Young The Giant is perhaps the only unexpected choice, considering the group is relatively young.  KROQ usually reserves night 2 for the younger, less established alt-rock groups.
