MOJAVE LORDS was born in Joshua Tree, California at Rancho De La Luna recording studio, where Queens Of The Stone Age, Arctic Monkeys, Daniel Lanois, The Desert Sessions, Masters Of Reality, UNKLE and countless others have created incredible recordings.

MOJAVE LORDS is the brain-child of musical mastermind David Catching and his neighbor, the equally brilliant Bingo Richey. After years of working with some of the world's brightest rock artists, they decided to team up, strap themselves in to a homemade rocket and press the launch button.

With some help from their friends; Brian "Big Hands" O'Connor, Barrett Martin, Chris Goss, Joey "The Sexy Mexi" Castillo and Danny Frankel, they made what the New York Times is calling "Dark, sexy rock & roll for a brave new race."

This is the next wave of Desert Stoner Rock.

This is mature, smart and visceral.


Featuring members of Eagles Of Death Metal, Queens Of The Stone Age, Screaming Trees, Tuatara, earthlings?, Masters Of Reality.

Sweethead - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
OUTSIDE; 7:30 pm

"The four-piece sports an alum of Queens Of The Stone Age, but the attraction here is singer Serrina Sims, a platinum-tressed piranha of a frontwoman at home on gleefully brutal bangers as much as snazzy punk blitzes. They're named for a Bowie B-side, and while they hit a bit harder than Mr. Stardust, they share his pan-sexual swagger." - LA Times
Alain Johannes - (Set time: 10:45 PM)
Alain Johannes
INSIDE: 10:45 pm

Rock writer Steven Rosen has this to say about Alain Johannes and the new album:

Alain Johannes is his own planet, guided by his own orbit and circling his own sun on Fragments and Wholes Vol. 1. On his second solo album, this self-contained artist of stunning pedigree—he has been an elemental part of live and recorded projects with everyone from Chris Cornell and Queens of the Stone Age to Them Crooked Vultures, No Doubt and the Arctic Monkeys—strums all the guitars, bangs all the drums, sings all the vocals as well as engineers, produces and mixes every note of every song.

On his new record—the long awaited follow-up to 2010's Spark—Johannes is like a mad scientist run amok in a sonic laboratory. Recorded at his home studio where multiple rooms are filled wall to ceiling with a wonderfully strange assortment of bizarre electric guitars, quirky acoustics, vintage stomp boxes and all the hippest and coolest recording paraphernalia you've ever seen, the Santiago, Chile native cross-pollinates sounds and scrambles textures in a way you've never heard before but swear you have. Heartbreakingly beautiful fingerpicked nylon string guitars dissolve into a deluge of menacing distorted electrics on one song while an ensemble section made up of flutes and saxes, or melancholic slide riffs recalling George Harrison's most beatific moments and even Led Zeppelin-tempered drum grooves variously inform other tracks.

The music is dark and atmospheric and balances on the singer's drone-like melodies, which are seemingly wrenched from somewhere deep inside him. His voice is haunted on "Kaleidoscope" and shimmers like heat rising from a summer sidewalk's day on "Swan and Crow." He plays this weird cigar box guitar that sounds eerily like a mandolin and when you hear these fluttery-styled Eastern licks creeping through the songs, you'd swear you're sitting in some smoky Casbah somewhere in Morocco puffing on a hookah and watching turbaned Bedouins riding through the nighttime desert. Johannes makes his electric guitar sound variously like a sitar and even as if it's being recorded backwards. He doesn't so much play his Fender Jazzmaster as he stabs at it, poking at it like a cornered animal. From his arsenal of battered, no name, pawnshop electric six-strings, the multi-instrumentalist manages to coax a pastiche of the most charming and chilling array of antique, lo-fi, fuzzed-out, tremolo-laden and EBow-slinky tones.

"It's like I get on a train and I can't get off," Alain Johannes says about the making of Fragments and Wholes Vol. 1. "If I have a false start then I'll just abandon it because I know I'm not plugged in somehow. I don't push through because for me most of the time it doesn't work. This is Vol. 1 because I was listening to the Beatles White album and there's this and there's that and this is short and this is long. It's 12 songs and 34 minutes, which would be so sweet on vinyl. I'm just trying to communicate the world of the song—the vibe of the song and the little mini-universe it's in as simply as possible. That doesn't mean it doesn't have thickness and texture. It just means get in and get out. And now for Vol. II? I have no idea what that's gonna be."
Sumo Princess - (Set time: 6:15 PM)
Sumo Princess
OUTSIDE: 6:15 pm

Abby Travis is one badass bassist. She just recently ended the final Go-Go's tour after playing with the storied Los Angeles band for much of the last half-decade, but that gig was just one notch on the talented four-stringer's bass strap. Travis, who got her start in the mid-'80s with The Lovedolls, has played with The Go-Go's, Beck, comedian/lounge singer Tony Clifton (created by the late, great Andy Kaufman and occasionally resurrected by Kaufman's friend Bob Zmuda), and seemingly everyone in between.

One might think all of these great gigs would make a musician jaded, or worse, stuck on herself. But Travis is down to earth and there isn't a hint of rock star attitude lingering around her. It's refreshing to talk to a performer who clearly loves what she does, whether she's acting as a hired gun laying down bass lines live or in the studio for well-established rock bands, or creating solo work or putting together bands of her own — like her current act, Sumo Princess, a two-piece bass and drums mix of stoner-punk and art-rock. She even gives music lessons when she's in town long enough to share her immense talent and musical knowledge.
Gary Wertz (Strawberry Smog) - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Gary Wertz (Strawberry Smog)
INSIDE: 10pm

Strawberry Smog’s psych-pop jangle-bop musical explorations are a meeting of town and country: The Kinks filtered through Waylon Jennings. It’s Country man wandering into the City and remarking on the crazy shit going down there. And it’s Urban man, escaping to the woods and desert for the renewal of fresh air, homebrew and home-grown.
