Desert Daze: Sunday

Image
Thanks to KXSC, I was able to go to Desert Daze festival, held at the Institute of Mentalphysics in Joshua Tree, California from October 14th through 16th.

Of all the sets I watched, I’ve picked my top three from each day of the festival to feature. Bonus: I took some photos that I’m rather proud of for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!

SUNDAY
It felt like Sunday came so fast, and it was sad to think that it was the last day of the festival. I was not at all ready to go back to L.A. As far as daily lineups went, I think Sunday was the most consistently solid. I made the most of the day by rushing back and forth between different sets with no time to take in all the other fest sights. It was hard to pick just 3 favorites to review, but here they are.

Teebs from Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder label played the first half of his set solo, quietly and unassumingly sitting in an office swivel chair while twiddling dials, tapping keys, and thoughtfully bobbing his…

SATURDAY
The Saturday schedule for Desert Daze started around noon, but things really didn’t pick up steam until the late afternoon, which was probably best for all the revelers that were out partying among the cacti until the wee hours. Here’s my review of the top three acts I saw that day.

The first artist I caught was Ryley Walker, who I had really wanted to see after falling in love with ‘Roundabout’, the single off his new album Golden Sings That Have Been Sung. I’ve described him as if Mac Demarco and Iron & Wine had a kid that really wanted to join jazz band in high school. His live performance was captivati…

Desert Daze: Friday

Image
Thanks to KXSC, I was able to go to Desert Daze festival, held at the Institute of Mentalphysics in Joshua Tree, California from October 14th through 16th. Described as a “not a ‘music festival’, but a ‘festival of music’”, this was the fifth year that Desert Daze was held and the first year that it was three days long instead of one day. In many ways this stage in the evolution of the festival made for an ideal experience. The organizers, Moon Block Party, were experienced enough that all the logistics ran smoothly, and since this was the first year at this scale, it was not overly hyped or too crowded.

The lineup was eclectic, featuring Washed Out, Primus, Godspeed You Black Emperor!, and Television as headliners with Andrew WK and Saul Williams leading the opening and closing ceremonies respectively. The diversity of the artists attracted a wide range of attendees from old sundrenched hippies to post metal heads to Angeleno revivalist hipsters to burners preaching PLUR. To see al…
