A mid-day, mid-week, mid-summer break from all things productive to take a humpday break in the action for a little commercial relief…We are a A piñata (/pɪnˈjɑːtə/ pin-YAH-tə) bursting with candy that flipped the script and shot the plot and somewhere in this period of commercial relief we remind our selfs to “make real friends” while we candy flip our way through the day as we watch July fade into the sunset. Like every desert dwelling S.O.B. we know all about the “night sweats”…Tuttut, it looks like rain so take a break and enjoy.

This is a song I keep hearing on Sirius XM the Spectrum so when I went to look it up I was surprised to see the the video was shoot right here in our Coachella Valley! There is even a credit given to our friends at Palm Springs Grip and Lighting.

Ya Pronto.

We all know Eevaan Tre & The Show…but before the silky smooth R&B Tre brought the “Show” he was Eevaan Tré sing this catchy Canción Ya Pronto.



And well….If things dont perk up friends…we can always turn to drinking! Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats – S.O.B.
