So, this weekend is a little short when it comes to local shows at night. But, that’s no problemo. One, because the shows that are going down are pretty cool. And two, because there are plenty of art gallery showings and pool parties to attend regardless.
Personally, I see myself taking a swim this weekend. We had a little tease with the overcast weather, but it was nothing more than a tease. It’s going to be hot weekend, and we all know it.
Wine, dine, swim, shop, nap, drink, drank drunk and call it a day.
Sounds good to me.
Here is where you can check off the drink, drank, drunk portion of your weekend to do list:

THURSDAY NIGHT:

FRIDAY NIGHT:

Pappy & Harriets @ 7:30pm
Matt Ellis & Paul Chesne!!
Australian indie folk rocker, Matt Ellis is back home in Los Angeles after a busy few weeks. SxSW 09 was a stand out year for this rising talent, debuting a set of new songs at two showcases (Little Radio & Spin It Indie).
Pappy & Harriet’s at 5P – 7P
The Shadow Mountain Band
The Shadow Mountain Band specializes in mountain-style harmonies with lively acoustic backup. They feature traditional mountain music, hillbilly gospels (think- ‘oh Brother, Where art Thou’) and bluegrass, along with eclectic originals.The band began several years ago as a hillbilly music jam session in the garden behind Pappy and Harriet’s Place, an historic roadhouse in Pioneertown, CA.
The record was released on April 21, and soon will be up on the New Moon website and www.shadowmountainband.com.
Pappy & Harriets at 9PM
Jerry Joseph & The JackMormons Special DJ set from ZIA FROM THE DANDY WARHOLS!
Some songwriters just strike down to the heart of things. Even when they’re being tender they nail you in the soul’s solar plexus, shaking us with words and wires and something inescapably human. Jerry Joseph is this kind of composer – a rocker with emotional scalpel that cuts deep every time. He wears his influences on his sleeve – Elvis Costello, Neil Young, John Lennon, Steve Earle – but tailors them in ways that are always distinctly himself, probing the politics of love and nations with equal dexterity.
SUNDAY EVENING:

Pappy & Harriet’s at 7:00PM
OUTDOOR SHOW WITH EAGLES OF DEATH METAL!
special guest : HEAD LITE DAWN
tickets are $20
Our boys are back!~Despite their catchy name, Eagles of Death Metal features neither Don Henley nor Tom Araya. Instead, the band is a side project of the Queens of the Stone Age that sounds like bluesy garage rock. QOTSA leader, Josh Homme, plays drums and performs under the pseudonym, Carlo Von Sexron. Homme’s childhood friend, Jesse Hughes, performs on vocals and guitar. Dave Catching plays guitar..and it’s his Birthday!tickets on sale now @ http://www.pappyandharriets.com http://www.ticketweb.com or calling 760-365-5956http://www.eaglesofdeathmetal.com/
