Meet JOHN DOE
Join us for a VIP Experience with the L.A. Punk Icon
KEXP invites you to an exclusive pre-show reception with John Doe, founder of the trailblazing Los Angeles punk band X and alt-country pioneers the Knitters on Friday, June 19th at 4:00 PM at the Triple Door.
You’ll get to watch John run through a few numbers before his headlining performance that night, and have a chance to mix and mingle with him, too. Ask questions, get your copy of Wild Gift autographed, or simply say hello to an American music legend.
Don’t miss your chance to be part of this one-of-a-kind experience and help build KEXP’s New Home at Seattle Center.

About the Campaign for KEXP’s New Home:
A shared passion for “music that matters” has inspired the listeners, artists, and curators of the KEXP Community for more than 40 years. Now, in order to increase that impact, we need to grow physically, too. KEXP’s New Home is designed specifically to reach more music lovers, break down barriers between listeners and their favorite artists, and make it even easier to share new music and experiences with KEXP Community members all over the world.
