Tis the season…April in Palm Springs is considered the “height of season,” music, art and cultural events of all kinds draw tens of thousands of diverse people from across the globe to the desert.
First up we have Coachella which we've talked about a little already, but for those of you who have missed it, Coachella is a music and arts festival in Indio that spans two weekends in April! (April 10-12 and April 17-19)!
The Tachevah Block Party is April 15th, between the Coachella weekends and is FREE!! It's an outdoor music party produced by the city of Palm Springs and Golden Voice! At the end the month we have Stagecoach (April 24-26) for you country fans and then The White Party (April 24-27) one of Palm Springs' most well known and hottest lgbtq parties of the year!
We here at F10 are particularly excited about the Tachevah Block Party this year, headliner Kimbra (who I love) is getting most of the attention but we think, the co-headliner JUNGLE is really the big story here. Jungle had one of the best albums of 2014 and we still have it on repeat well into 2015. Any opportunity to see this act and their 7 piece band perform live is a gift of musical genius and to get to see them for free, well Palm Springs, consider yourself super lucky! And you can't forget about the amazing local talent that competed against 100's of other bands to win their spot performing for this year's block party.
Little Red Spiders, a five-piece band with two backing female vocalists all graduated from Cathedral City High School, they describe themselves as a, "one car garage rock n' roll band," with influences ranging from Bob Dylan to the Kinks. You can check out some of their music here! Alchemy, an Indio based psychedelic rock band, a second year finalist clinched their spot during the first finals showcase at the Date Shed in January! You can check out their music on soundcloud here! Caxton was featured a few weeks ago here on the FWORD as one of our Local 622 live music performances at Birba! They are based out of Palm Desert and play alternative indie pop music! You can find them on reverbnation and itunes. Caxton has released two full length albums and a string of EP's since their formation in 2008 and have been nominated in multiple categories for the 2015 CV Weekly Music Awards including best band, best alternative band and even a few solo nominations in bass, keys and vocals categories! Can't wait to see you all at Tachevah!!
