In our book, nothing says I LOVE YOU more than a good old fashioned mix-tape. You remember making these: agonizing over the tracks, recording songs off the radio, trying to get everything in just the right order, painstakingly handwriting out all the tracks on notebook paper. Making one of these babies was a lot of work but it was so worth it. Because you know what it meant when you received one of these? Getting a mixed tape, well, that pretty much meant true love.
As a special Valentine’s Day present, The Standard, Hollywood presents: From Desert Nights… With Love, a mix-tape featuring some of our favorite Desert Night’s performers curated just for you by KCRW’s DJ Valida.
And, just to keep it old school, here’s a home-made track list written on notebook paper. Why? Because we love you…
What is Desert Nights?
Desert Nights is a weekly gathering at The Standard, Hollywood, hosted by KCRW’s DJ Valida. Every Wednesday, Valida curates three acoustic musical acts to perform a set in the Cactus Lounge. The vibe is warm and intimate, evoking an impromptu jam in a musician’s living room. The music begins at 7:30pm and it’s free.
