Now that this round of festivals is over, we can go back to our regularly scheduled activities. At least until Desert Daze 2014 on Saturday out at Sunset Ranch Oasis. which has a very strong line up. Had a hell of a good time at this year's BROKECHELLA on Saturday which provided a great showcase for bands like yOya, Kera & The Lesbians, Francisco The Man and others on the outdoor Cartel Stage.
Sunday (yesterday) was a great early show with Dios celebrating the ten year anniversary of their first album with a show/party at The Echo, filled with an audience of old and new friends and a very festive environment featuring a powerful and gorgeous set of cuts off their first album. It was stunning! And not one to let a good thing go by, Joel Jerome has two more shows scheduled for this week. First up, Monday at The Echo again with Babies On Acid for the Mystic Braves residency, and on Wednesday for "Desert Nights" at The Standard on bill of the Lauren Barth residency. Mystic Braves are also part of Desert Daze 2014 next weekend.
