Michael from Slipping Into Darkness is sending me band names via Myspace Messenger and I’m having the time of my life listening to these amazing tracks and writing for the blog at the same time.
Anyway, the real reason why I even bring up what I am listening to on Myspace right now is because I am searching for some bands to book for my December 19th party. Yes, the Coachella Valley Art Scene is having a raging party on December 19th. And yes, it is all ages and you are invited. I am aiming to get some of my favorite and most inspiring indie bands from Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego, the High Desert and the Low Desert to share a night together. I figure if we all get together one night, we could have a really good time. A little Southern California love fest. Not to mention, I will be showcasing a bunch of local, young visual artists from around the Coachella Valley as well. And, let’s not forget your local skaters. Gotta have the homies bust tricks on some half pipes and rails.
I am naming and theming the party, “Something From Nothing”. I think that is a theme that we can all relate to on some level. It also is a direct correlation to the whole blogger mentality and reality that anyone can start one of these and make something from it… all you gotta do is do it!
So, let’s do it!
This week we’re doing the following:
1. The Chinese Starts tonight at J Dee’s. Let’s not fool ourselves. Anyone who has the Internet has to know about this party tonight. Not only are the fellas from The Ghost Channel throwing this, but Epidemic is also promoting this party. Oh, and let’s not forget the fact that this party is also a celebration that J Dee’s is now an 18+ venue!!!! If you know how either of these parties roll, then you know it’s gonna be deep. Go early to even get in.
2. Latina Obscura. Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, dreams come true. And they come true at Space 120. This Wednesday your local sexy Latinos of the desert are getting together to deliver some of the rarest and most original performances (performance art, plays, poems, etc) for free. Free. Yeah, free. No need to say no! Vamos!!
3. Sounds of the Desert: Los Mumblers!. Personally, we love the kids. We found a free download of their latest album online and we are excited to share it with you guys. This sounds of the desert is gonna be a fun one.
4. For the Next 7 Generations. I’m excited about this one. Check it out, the Palm Springs Green Scene is having a special fundraiser screening of For the Next 7 Generations: 13 Indigenous Grandmothers Weaving a World that Works Thursday November 12th at 6:30pm. It’s a film that “
