The next annual Deserted at the Palms festival in Wonder Valley, Calif., will feature garage-rock liege King Tuff and noise-rock veterans No Age, among many others, on May 30.

Taking place at a shabby cool bar in the middle of the Mojave called The Palms (where word is beer costs two bucks and twinkies are sold), Deserted at the Palms offers a weekend of camping, interactive art, vendors, a “wet zone” and of course lots of cool music. The lineup also includes Black Bananas, Sonny & The Sunsets, Magic Trick, Jack Name, Part Time, Pharaohs, Nedelle Torrisi, The Memories, Zig Zags, Bloody Death Skull, Kim & The Created, Feels, Zombelle, L.A. Takedown, Butchy Fuego, Anna Oxygen and Barfth.

(In which the group's adventures come to a close.)

Everyone awoke a little gloomy. It was our last day, and check-out time was only four hours away. Logan in-particular was not okay with this and sought out the front desk to plea our case. The result was a new check-out time of four o’clock, at no additional charge.

I’m not sure what Logan had to do to get this sweet deal; knowing her, they were probably just charmed, but that makes for a boring blog, so let’s pretend she seduced the owner’s wife, or at the very least threatened them with rad karate moves.

"Hit me with your best shot" - Logan in control

With only half a day left, the majority agreed that the best thing to do was give me a haircut.

Uh, wha...? Really? It’s that bad?

What I saw as my sexy, shaggy mop – so hip and suave was, unbeknownst to me, something akin to Eric Stoltz’ hot look in the movie “Mask”. Apparently I had been unwittingly turning Greek adventurers into stone with my mere hairdo. Who knew?

Bad hair daze: Eric Stoltz, Medusa, and me

Carrie was adamant. She was going to cut my hair. My boyfriend immediately switched to publicist mode, yelling demands and controlling events from his chaise lounge. “Short!” he kept shouting, “Short… short!”

My own opinions were merely tolerated as flights of fancy. I had been reduced to a pre-Suffragette woman with hopes of one day earning a living for herself, winning the right to vote, or at the very least, opening her own door without being seen as a dangerous lesbian.
