Speaking of Deap Vally, the female rock duo had a wonderful set filled with dancing, child fans and Moon Block Party members on stage to dance and back them up on vocals. These ladies seemed comfortable in the desert air probably due to the fact that their first show ever was at the desert venue of Pappy and Harriet's. The only real hiccup for Deap Vally was that right as they were getting ready to play, guitarist Lindsey Troy had to use the Porta-Potti and couldn't find her setlist. Otherwise, most band's had smooth sailing, though Autolux started a half hour late due to technical difficulties with its keyboard, resulting in Autolux guitarist Greg Edwards cutting into his wife Raveonettes singer/bassist Sharin Foo's set. - [CMJ]

The Desert Daze festival began in 2012 as an alternative to Coachella but has come into its own since, mixing international acts and California local artists. This was the second year in a row for it to be at Sunset Ranch in Oasis, California and the one-day event (4/26) featured Blonde Redhead, DIIV, The Raveonettes, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Deap Vally, Autolux, Cosmonauts, and many more. Pictures from Desert Daze 2014 are in this post.
