\\\\V//// DESERT GENERATOR \\\\V////
Saturday, April 9th, 2016. Rolling Heavy Magazine, Allnight Allnight, and Brant Bjork bring you DESERT GENERATOR, a heavy, psychedelic, rock & roll happening. We are inspired by the legendary generator parties (from which Brant’s band Kyuss originated) and the 1970’s “van-ins”. We got five rad bands and a custom van show – a full day of laid back fun. It all takes place @ Pappy & Harriet’s, a wild west ghost town & dusty, desert cantina in the birthplace of desert rock.
Riding Easy Records Van Jams Contest! The badasses from Riding Easy Records are judging the competition and making the prize pack for the winner of the Riding Easy Van Jams contest! Overall winner will be picked based on a combination of three factors – best song selection, best sounding stereo and best hang in the van.
There will also be an award for Best Van Club Participation, so rally your brothers & sisters and come in full force.
Sorry, no conversion vans or mini vans. The van cut off year for the show is 1996.
There will be Special Guest DJs playing classic rock and classic metal plus shopping for van parts & goodies, vinyl records, vintage clothing & handmade goods vendors and awesome brands including MIDNIGHT RIDER and more to be announced! Just a Van Damn Good Time!!!
Small print… No charge to show your van. Show hours are 12 NOON to 4:00 PM so arrive no earlier than 8:30 AM but no later than 10:30 AM the day of the show to get your rig parked and ready to show. If you want to park together, arrive together. No in-and-outs, no leaving early, no one in after 11:30 AM. Must have auto insurance, there will be a waiver when you arrive. All vans must exit the van show area and re-park after the event ends @ 4:00 PM. Each van owner is responsible for themselves and their van. Please respect each other as you’d have them respect you.
The ROLLING HEAVY VAN SHOW starts at high noon and will feature 1960s & 1970s custom vans, vendors, DJS and more.
The DESERT GENERATOR concert will start as the sun begins to set on the desert. All bands will perform on the outside stage at Pappy + Harriet’s Pioneertown Saloon near Joshua Tree and Yucca Valley, California.
