Plus Special Guests
Beware of Darkness

The KJEE Winter Round-Up will take place at the Arlington Theatre on Monday, December 10th. The Round-Up will feature Metric, a multi-award winning Canadian indie rock and new wave band, plus co-headliner Tegan and Sara, a Canadian indie band that has sold nearly 1 million career albums. Also performing will be Los Angeles band Youngblood Hawke and a bold, new power-trio of old souls Beware of Darkness. Tickets go on sale Saturday, November 3rd at 11am.

Metric is Emily Haines, Jimmy Shaw, Joshua Winstead and Joules Scott Key. An independent rock and roll band empowered by their innovative approach to the music business, Metric self-released their last album Fantasies on five continents without the benefit of a label and earned themselves multiple radio hits around the world with songs such as "Gimme Sympathy," "Gold Guns Girls," and "Help I'm Alive." They went on to sell over a million singles and 500,000 albums worldwide.

Tegan and Sara have built an avid global following of fans and fellow musicians alike. Their unique ability to bridge the pop and indie worlds has allowed their music to cross all traditional boundaries of genre, from being covered by The White Stripes to collaborating with superstar DJs such as Tiesto and David Guetta. Tegan and Sara have played countless festivals including Coachella, Bonnaroo, Glastonbury, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, and have toured with artists as The Killers, The Black Keys, Jack Johnson, Neil Young and many more.

Inspired by the Herman Wouk novel of the same name, Youngblood Hawke was born out of late night creative musings between longtime friends Sam Martin and Simon Katz. Katz's longtime friend Tasso Smith moved to Los Angeles to join the band when he heard the first demos, and Alice Katz, who was a key part of the original songwriting sessions, joined as well. To round out the lineup they recruited drummer and friend Nik Hughes.

Beware of Darkness are ready to frighten your children, sleep with your daughters and make you shake, scream, and contort like it's a Depression-Era, Southern exorcism. They play fast moving rock songs with exploding key and rhythm changes mid-song. They also play slow-cooked, sexed-up bluesy things.

Don’t miss your chance to attend the KJEE Winter Round-Up featuring co-headliners Metric + Tegan and Sara, plus special guests Youngblood Hawke and Beware of Darkness at the Arlington Theatre on Monday, December 10th. Tickets range from $32.00 to $40.00, plus applicable service charges. The Arlington Theatre is located at 1317 State Street, Santa Barbara, 805-963-4408.
