Winter typically isn’t when you would expect to see big, arena-level concerts rolling through Sacramento. Larger acts mostly tour in the summer and festivals are almost always in fair weather months. If we’re lucky, each year there will be one or two giant Christmastime shows at Memorial Auditorium or Sleep Train Arena. This year, Radio 94.7 is pulling through with their Electric Christmas show on Wednesday, Dec. 4 at the arena. Headlining will be rock sensations Cage the Elephant, who just released their third album, Melophobia, on Oct. 8, 2013. Support will be provided by English indie rock quartet Alt-J, as well as indie/electro band Grouplove. Also on the bill is Capital Cities, The Features and MS MR. Solid lineup, for sure! All of those bands get a ton of airplay on Radio 94.7, so if you want to familiarize yourself with them, just keep the dial locked there and you’ll be jamming in no time. Tickets to Electric Christmas are $39.50 and $79.70 for VIP. Visit or for more details and to find a link to purchase tickets.
