Jesika Von Rabbit - (Set time: 10:15 PM)
Jesika Von Rabbit
Jesika von Rabbit, the former frontwoman of Joshua Tree’s hi-desert trailblazers, Gram Rabbit, is about to release her second solo album Dessert Rock the follow-up to her 2015 release Journey Mitchell, both on Dionysus Records. While Journey Mitchell is laden with new wave-influenced synths, keyboard melodic and infectious dance beats, Dessert Rock is an avalanche of appetizing amalgams that incorporate hints of calypso, sci-fi, psychedelic, rock, electro and funk. You are going to want seconds after sampling this dessert!
Jesika’s solo endeavor began with her performing literally solo with two dancers and has evolved into a full band line-up that includes former Gram Rabbit guitarist and independent producer Ethan Allen. JvR has toured with Eagles of Death Metal, performed at Desert Daze and has shared the stage with a diverse roster of acts including Wanda Jackson, Cat Power, and Crystal Method. Dubbed “The Queen of the Hi-Desert”, Jesika even has a menu item named after her at the world renown Pappy & Harriet’s in Pioneertown, CA - the delicious “Nachos von Rabbit”.
She is drop dead gorgeous and has an absolutely incredible voice. But von Rabbit is more than a pretty chick singer. She is an innovative creator and expressionist as well as one hell of an entertainer… Her show is brilliantly nonsensical; a sonic and visual spectacle that is unlike any other and you cannot take your eyes away. She is an artist that you just have to keep coming back to see because you evolve every time you do. – Coachella Valley Weekly
Jesika von Rabbit’s original compositions have been licensed to CSI, Life, The Real World, Sons of Anarchy, Crash, Hit & Miss, Crazy Stupid Love and War Inc., as well as a commercial spot for Fruit of the Loom that aired during the 2012 Summer Olympics.
Death Valley Girls - (Set time: 9:15 PM)
Death Valley Girls
Think of Death Valley Girls as an acid-tripping science experiment that’s been buried alive, and resurrected as a sexually liberated dystopian chain-gang. A cosmic scar, if you will, on the hills of Echo Park, where the experiment began in 2013 by proto-punk Bonnie Bloomgarden and guitarist Larry Schemel — who got lost in the desert, returned to their haunted garage in Echo Park, and pieced together their vision with shopworn images of sexploitation babes, a blood-soaked Iggy Pop, and Bloomgarden’s series of phantasms, the result of spending a year in a mental institution, where she planned her neon-glowing odyssey by listening to Black Sabbath and UFO, reading about alien conspiracy theories, and deriving her band’s moral compass from a line she saw in a movie:

“Everybody’s gotta be in a gang,” from campy sexploitation romp Switchblade Sisters (1975).

The Shadow Mountain Band - (Set time: 5:00 PM)
The Shadow Mountain Band
The Shadow Mountain Band specializes in mountain-style harmonies with lively acoustic backup. They feature Traditional Mountain Music, Hillbilly Gospels (think- ‘oh Brother, Where art Thou’) and Bluegrass, along with eclectic originals and completely reworked contemporary tunes. Music critics have begun to call their style ‘desert grass’.
