It’s Wednesday.
But who really cares?
In 2 days it will be Friday.
Friday is home to many good shows this weekend in the desert. As well as Saturday. This could quite possibly be the grand finale to good weather in the desert for some months to come now. Out with the perfect weather, in with the heat. Oy vey.

Out during the night and in during the day isn’t too cool either. Because… what’s a nightlife without a day time affair? Nada.

Below are some day time events that I think you might be interested in showing up to. Some are free and some are priceless, in terms of enrichment. Comprende?

And, if you don’t make it out to these events… then maybe you can catch me at the Stagecoach Festival. I will be one person wearing a tribute shirt to a hip hop crew. Holler.

Here we go:
