In its seventh manifestation, the characteristically psych-inclined fest hung up it’s dusty desert boots to traipse barefoot on the glorious grassy lawns of Moreno Beach in Lake Perris.

Desert Daze kicks out the jams with punk greats Iggy Pop, Thurston Moore, John Cale

Looking around at all of the handkerchief covered faces in the crowd, it seemed as if a train robbery themed flash mob might break out at any moment. Rarely can a bandana be considered a useful accessory, but when Desert Daze rolls around, the thin, square pieces of cloth becomes an absolute necessity. The three-day […]

Primus, Thee Oh Sees, The Coathangers, among most memorable moments from Desert Daze day two
