Get in bed with Desert Nights! Join us this Wednesday for an intimate red, white, and blue bedroom edition of The Standard, Hollywood’s Desert Nights held in guest room 120! Because what could be more patriotic than hanging out on a balcony, chugging back a few cold ones, and listening to some acoustic Americana folk music?
Ted Wendler (Mansions On The Moon): “If you name the most interesting new recording artists to have emerged this year, the list probably encompasses only a small number of worthy candidates. One name that should ring a bell is Mansions On The Moon” - Hypetrak
Daisy McCrackin: Daisy McCrackin is a songwriter from San Fransisco whose first release in 2009 won radio play and rave reviews. In 2010, Daisy formed a band to play live in Los Angeles and record her first full length album “God Willing”. Drawing comparisons to a range of legends such as Joni Mitchel, Suzzane Vega, Nancy Sinatra and Ricky Lee Jones, Daisy McCrackin is a true artist with a unique sound and original songs who appeals to audiences who appreciate folk music, female vocalists and fresh, modern music.
Jesse Tyre Karp: “Singer-guitarist-main songwriter Jesse Tyre Karp of The Estate has a voice somewhere between G. Love and Tom Waits, while the songs he writes have been compared to early-Springsteen. The music is a bit more groove oriented than Springsteen, but straight-ahead rock is definitely the core around which other musical genres are added.” - Santa Cruz Sentinel.
What is Desert Nights?

The vibe is warm and intimate, evoking an impromptu jam in a musician’s living room. The music begins at 7:30pm, it’s always free and always a good time. Guaranteed.
