In another step toward post-Covid normalcy, earlier this week KCRW announced the lineup for their 2022 Summer Nights series. This year’s slate includes stops at seven locations with 15 dates set from July through September, including appearances at The Hammer Museum, Descanso Garden, and California African American Museum. So what am I most excited about?

Well, The Chinatown events (see photo above) have always been my favorite setting, and this year will see two dates (July 16 and Aug. 20) hosted at the Central Plaza. Expect DJ sets, a huge dance floor, tons of food truck options, large-scale video projections, and all the rest.

Also, I’m thrilled that former We Like L.A. contributor Tolliver (yes Jonathan, I’m totally claiming you) is headlining the Sep. 10 Summer Nights shindig at One Colorado in Old Pasadena. Tolliver’s music is a just-plain-fun hybrid of pop, funk and soul with lyrics that can slay even the coldest of hearts. This appearance on James Corden back in February put his skills on full display. Dude is a marvel.
