This weekend you have the opportunity to party with LA’s freakiest folks…. The New LA Folk Fest :: Desert Weekend.
The two day festival takes place right in our neighbor’s back yard, at Pappy & Harriet’s in Pioneertown! Sweet. The festival features some of the best folk musicians from the Los Angeles area.
Make sure to wear your winter gear because word just got out that it’s going to snow this weekend in the High Desert. And when it snows in Pioneertown… it’s snows. Coming from a snow expert (jk, I was born and raised in the Coachella Valley), you gotta put your faith in me.
So, anyways, this is going to be a really lovely event and I encourage all to go….
We’ve partnered up with The Deli L.A. + L.A. RECORD + O.N.E. Natural Experience for a Desert Weekend.February 26, see He’s My Brother She’s My Sister, Amanda Jo Williams, and Tommy Santee Klaws play at infamous desert honky tonk Pappy and Harriet’s Pioneertown Palace.

HANDY DESERT ADVICE There are plenty of unusual sights and activities in Joshua Tree and the surrounding area. Like the Integratron, a round building with no metal where you can get a sound bath ($2 off with Desert Weekend ticket). The Institute Of Mental Physics, a whole compound dedicated to meditation and breathing, is hosting a special session for us on Saturday. There’s poppy fields and haunted bowling alleys, and some of the best thrift store shopping (visit Gypsyland in Desert Hot Springs, owned by very tall goth bro & sis that listen to Disney soundtracks all day). There’s no better place like Pappy & Harriet’s Pioneertown Palace. It’s the mecca of strangeness set against an old fake cowboy ghost town still inhabited by animals with different color eyes and people with accents, limps, and whiskey-worn skin. We’ll do a Bonfire just down the street from Pappy’s near the Pioneertown corrals. Then wake up the next morning with mimosas at Joshua Tree Saloon and more music.
Feb 26 Soundbath at the Integratron, 12pm noon ($2 discount for Fest attendees)
