Summer nights in Los Angeles are unique to anywhere else. The sky is always clear. There’s a cool ocean breeze, and the vibe is that of pure relaxation. Nowhere is this typical Angeleno night more evident than at The Standard, Hollywood’s weekly acoustic series, Desert Nights. It’s what California folk is all about. Always willing to share the love, we asked DJ Valida, curator of Desert Nights, to create a playlist of some of Desert Nights most iconic performers. So, plug in your speakers, pour a glass, crack a brew, roll a … well, relax however you see fit.
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, it’s always free and always a good time. Guaranteed.
