Crystal Antlers, Bleached and FIDLAR to Play at a Secret Location in Palm Springs on April 21st
A little bit bluesy, a little bit dirty, and a lot psychedelic, headliners Crystal Antlers merge 60's psych organs with soulful guitars and mournful melodies, creating energetic anthems suitable for sing-along's, swaying, and healthy old-fashioned lighter-raising. Supported by the sounds of fuzzed-out pop-punk Bleached and the reckless glee of LA skate-trash punchers FIDLAR, the Palm Springs Bonfire Sessions is bringing the best of West Coast talent.
This year, the live performances will be captured on film for a new live music documentary series on Noisey.com.
In addition to the concert line-up, local artist Matt Goldman will create a unique poster for the Palm Springs Bonfire Sessions, and concertgoers will receive limited edition silk-screened prints at the show. Goldman is a graphic designer living in Los Angeles, previously working at Shepard Fairey's Studio Number One.
Bands and A Bonfire Under the Big Sky
The third annual JanSport Bonfire Sessions will take place in five cities across North America. The idea is simple - a free outdoor concert featuring a locally adored band and a bonfire. This year, the live performances in Austin, Palm Springs, Toronto, Seattle and San Francisco will be captured on film for a new live music documentary series on Noisey.com. Posters for each event will be created by a local artist as well and will be given away to fans at the show.
