While on the Kimmo 2 arrival into Santa Monica (KSMO), be prepared to be dumped in between DARTS and BEVEY on the VOR or GPS-A. SoCal approach will keep you high (I think 6000′) and vector an intercept between the two fixes and clear you for the approach. Best to configure early or at least prepared for it.
