What an amazing week it has been in Palm Springs! Modernism Week is in full swing and we are SO lucky to have Lucky Bones (ha! see what I did there?!) with us at Birba THIS THURSDAY February 19th for our Local 622 Live Music Showcase! Lucky Bones is the desert acoustic rock duo of Gabriella Evaro and Chris Unck and their sweet sounds are not to be missed. Humorous, kind, and in touch with the world, just from reading the answers to their questions below you already get a sense of the type of people and the type of music Gabby and Chris play! They draw inspiration from nature, the cosmos and the world around them which is evident in the soulful and earthy tones of their music. I've come to the conclusion that there MUST be something in the high desert water because there is so much unbelievable talent that has emerged from that area it's out of control! I hope you are intrigued because you should be, so come take a break from the madness and jam out under the desert stars this Thursday from 7-930 with Lucky Bones!
