Paul McCartney played a very intimate show between weekends of Desert Trip (which starts again today)
In between his massive performances at Desert Trip, Paul McCartney found time to play an intimate show for those lucky enough to be in attendance at the famous western-style bar Pappy and Harriet's right outside of Joshua Tree in Pioneertown, CA on Thursday night (10/13). It was a packed scene as you can imagine, and some press managed to get a glimpse of it.
The Western-style bar was so packed, most people were only able to catch glimpses of McCartney’s head bopping back and forth. Many watched on a video monitor. But the sensation of being within 20 yards of a Beatle and hearing him sing and speak close up and personal created a sense of history, not to mention joy. The sound was among the best ever heard at Pappy’s.
McCartney seemed to be having as much fun as the crowd, saying, “This is fantastic here in Pioneertown.” - Desert Sun
Meanwhile, The second weekend of Desert Trip kicks off tonight with newly-minted Nobel Prize winner Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones and then continues with Roger Waters, Paul McCartney, Neil Young and The Who as the weekend progresses.
And in nearby Joshua Tree there's another festival going down this weekend with a confusingly similar name -- Desert Daze -- with the likes of Television, Primus, The Sonics, Deerhunter, Godspeed You! Black Emperor and more.
Stay tuned for more coverage of both Desert Trip and Desert Daze. Meanhile, check out Paul's setlist from Pappy and Harriet's below, and check out more pics of week 1 at Desert Trip in the gallery below.
