Our friends in L.A. have got killer lineups on both nights of their 22nd Annual Almost Acoustic Christmas. We previously acquainted you with the bands of night 1, and now it’s time to find out about the acts performing the second night.
We’ve gathered a little bit of info about each of the artists playing Sunday, December 11 at the Gibson Amphitheatre in L.A., to help get you more familiar with what to expect.
THE BLACK KEYS

Despite their inscrutable, modest natures, The Black Keys have consistently surged under the radar of mainstream popular music until their sixth album, 2010’s Brothers won three Grammy Awards and was nominated for another two. Now The Black Keys are set to release their highly anticipated seventh album, El Camino.

Since coming together in 2006, the five-piece has released two albums, 2008’s self-titled and this year’s Thank You, Happy Birthday. The group has topped charts—both national and worldwide—with their hits “Ain’t No Rest For The Wicked” and “Shake Me Down.”
