It’s Hump Day in the Desert, so don’t choose to spend it alone.

While lurking on the internet is morning we found a few events that we thought you be interested in participating in; a free short film screening, an open mic, and/or a local hip hop show (with $1 beers!).

You can do it all, or do nothing at all – the choice is yours.

Make the best of your mid-week freak out and support your local art community/!

See you there…






“We’re getting together with our pals at Palm Springs International Film Society to present a selection of  short reels for our motley gang of cinephile friends every third Wednesday night.

It’s a chance to relax, discuss the state of cinema, laugh your ass off or invent the cinéaste’s version of beer pong.

The theme of this edition of short reels is ShortCuts: Detours on the Road to Romance, in which the red, red rose of true love is a many thorned thing.”
