Stuff White People Like will one day include a chapter devoted to white people getting high in the desert. White people love to try to invoke the native spirit that “apparently resides in the SouthWest” – a weird place for it to reside since the SouthWest is thee place the USA drove thee Native Americans too when thee USA decided they didn’t deserve to live on their home astroturf. Anyway, White People go to the desert to have a mystical experience so they can return to the city and be labeled a visionary. Just look at what these burners tried to do a few months ago at my old crash pad in Oakland. You know, Manimal is putting on their second annual Festival out in Joshua Tree. Manimal is awesome. Get tickets.

Our day started out (though it shouldn’t have) with Whispertown2000 (omg… check out their stats – are they really listening to themselves that much???), a southern, dual female, lead vocalists jam/ alt country band. This was the kind of annoying, forced, twang fest that scared me away from Texas daydreams in my youth. They closed their set with a song about time which made me want to barf (they love time? Wasting mine maybe?…). I’d suggest staying far, far away from them.
Afterwards the band we were there to see came on (thank God), the Evangelicals. Hailing from Oklahoma city are an Oklahoma City they often get compared to The Flaming Lips, but the band is comprised of sexy/hip Midwestern boys (which the Lips never really were) and share the Lips penchant for the strange. Their sound is more whimsical post-punk psychedelic than the Lips stuff nowadays with vocals reminiscent of early Robert Smith with a more helium croon.
