(As one of the organizers of the New LA Folk Fest Desert Weekend, Daiana Feuer gives us a virtual taste of what's in store once you go east of the 10 freeway.–Ed.)
The New LA Folk Fest Desert Weekend has been designed to mimic the effects of leave-in conditioner on your life, unraveling the knots with great strange music surrounded by even-stranger desert beauty.
The bands selected represent the folky best of what's happening in LA. There are many among us drawn to voices reminiscent of ghosts and cartoons, toys and tap dancing and beards and congas.
We've even arranged a meditation session for a deep spa-worthy mind massage (visit http://lafolkfest.com for info). Follow us from Pappy & Harriet's Pioneertown Palace on Saturday night straight through brunch at Joshua Tree Saloon on Sunday morning.
