Live 105 announces Not So Silent Night concert lineup

Well, the lid is busted right off this one. And they kept it under wraps pretty damned well, we must say. But the roster for Live 105’s upcoming Not So Silent Night concert — hitting  Oakland’s Oracle Arena on Dec. 9 — was just released, and it’s a killer.

Kind of a Who’s-Who of the 2011 alterna-scene zeitgeist. More names will be added, but right now Young the Giant will be opening, and then the bill blossoms to include Gavin Rossdale’s recently-reformed Bush, the brilliant Florence And The Machine (backing her new “Ceremonials” stunner), British neo-folkies Mumford & Sons, and a completely-revitalized Jane’s Addiction.

Seriously — you couldn’t ask for a more finger-on-the-pop-cultural-pulse concert.

Tickets will go on sale this Saturday at 10 a.m. (see www.live105.radio.com for further details). And fans will have several opportunities to score tickets over the coming weeks by tuning in to Live 105 daily, when DJs will ask for Caller No. 10 at 11 a.m., then 1, 3, 5 and 7 p.m., via two separate numbers, 800-696-1053 or 415-478-LIVE.

Christmas is apparently coming early to the Bay Area this rocking year.
