It's the most KROQ-y time of the year, and this morning on Kevin and Bean the line up for the 21st Annual KROQ Almost Acoustic Chrismas was announced. The two-day, holiday-themed, rock and rollathon will take place December 11-12 at the Gibson Amphitheatre with long-time-listeners and first-time-callers taking the stage.

Smashing Pumpkins, Social Distortion, My Chemical Romance, Cake and Bad Religion set the tone for Night One; Night Two sings to a slightly different crowd with The Black Keys, Phoenix, Vampire Weekend, Florence and the Machine and Brandon Flowers.

See, now you have something to give thanks for next week. Full lineup and ticket info after the jump.
