Hello Coachella Valley. Check out what’s good for the upcoming week. For some mysterious reason, these weekly events seem to be spiritually heavy. And what I mean by that is that we have a lot of events that evolve around spiritualism and phychics. Pretty cool if you ask me. But, if you aren’t too cool with it then there is PLENTY more to pick from. This is a great week for anyone in the adventerous mood.

And don’t forget to schroll all the way to the bottom of this posting to check Alf Alpha’s Old School Hip Hop Mix Tape. He put togther a nice little collection of all his favorite hip hop songs. I think you might dig it.
