Recently, The Standard got into bed with the Texas hotel group Bunkhouse, and to consummate the marriage, we're bringing a little touch of Texas to California. Bunkhouse and KCRW have partnered up on three special Texas editions of our Desert Nights music series at The Standard, Hollywood. The first installment took place on July 13, 2016 with Meshell Ndegeocello, Kat Khaleel, and special guest Doyle Bramhall II.
A performer of tremendous power, Ndegeocello is an alumni of last year's Trans-Pecos festival, Bunkhouse's far-out festival of music and love at their teepees and trailers hotel, El Cosmico, in Marfa. If you're feeling the vibes, we highly, highly recommend that you make plans to attend this year's fest—the lineup is ideal, the setting unforgettable, and the vibes unrivaled. There's even a rumor about direct flights from NYC (check back for more info on that).
