Who ordered the beer filled coconut? Pass Joshua Tree, pass through the town of 29 Palms and you will wander into Wonder Valley. There, miles down Amboy Road, you will find an oasis in The Palms Restaurant and Bar and if you have gone this far down the rabbit hole, you might as well stay a while and get Deserted at the Palms Music Festival. There, Feels, Nedelle Torrisi, Kim & The Created, Bloody Death Skull, Zig Zags, Magic Trick, No Age and King Tuff played (mostly lucid) while sending their music out into the desert and daring the sun to set after hitting 102 degrees. Kiddie pools, booze and good vibes kept the heat at bay and when darkness fell, strange and magical things appeared in the desert air.
