Desert Daze, sponsored by Vitaminwater, proved to be an epic alternative to the enormity that Coachella has become. It’s the place to ditch the shorty-shorts, slap on some jeans and get ready to kick dust into the desert sky. With such an awesome line up for its first year of existence, I can only see it making Desert Hot Springs, CA as much of a garage-hold name as its neighbor in the east in the coming years.
This past weekend, we rocked out to Bleached, Death Hymn Number 9, Blue Jungle, Dante Vs Zombies, Moving Units, and Allah-Las and have evidence to prove it. Check out all the Desert Daze recaps on Vans.com/coachella
If you missed out on a Coachella pass, use the money to road trip it out to the garage rock oasis. It’s free ($5 donation from the kindness of your heart), and there are still 6 days left of music and good times in Dillon Roadhouse.
