Festival season continues with a new one called Deserted At The Palms, happening at The Palms bar May 17 out in Wonder Valley.
Where's that, you might ask? You may have heard of Pappy and Harriet's over in Pioneertown and the suddenly hip town of Joshua Tree, but just past those places, off Highway 62, is the even more remote Wonder Valley, home to the surreal Palms bar. It's a dusty, friendly saloon with an outdoor stage owned and run by the band The Sibleys, who also play at every show at the bar.
|Thee Oh Sees|
Sound cool? You haven't even heard what bands will be playing yet. It's a doozy of a lineup—prolific Bay Area garage rockers Thee Oh Sees; Welsh songstress Cate le Bon, who just graced our own little stage; lo-fi greats White Fence; surrealist pop duo Prince Rama; dark disco diva Nite Jewel; jangle-pop maestros Dream Boys; minimal wave lady Geneva Jacuzzi, who will DJ at Amoeba Hollywood May 30 at 8 p.m.; wild folk band Bloody Death Skull; and so much more, including Chrome Canyon, Rainbow Arabia, Amanda Jo Williams, Hott MT, Alex Lilly, Gun Outfit, Sex Stains and, of course, The Sibleys. The show is put on by L.A. Record's Daiana Feuer and Jessica Espeleta, the latter of whom will be DJing here Friday May 23 at 8 p.m.
You can get tickets at Amoeba Hollywood for $30 (plus a $3 service fee). Get 'em and get weird out in the desert.
