Jesika von Rabbit: June L.A., July Southern States, SFTRI, New Album


JESIKA von RABBIT, the former leader of Joshua Tree’s hi-desert trailblazers, GRAM RABBIT, will be performing two shows in Los Angeles, and touring through the Southern states with her longtime musical cohorts, the cinematic psychedelic spaghetti-western SPINDRIFT.

In the past few months, JESIKA von RABBIT has released a stream of digital singles, as well as a 45 RPM record featuring “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me” b/w “Din Ho” on the revived Sympathy for the Record Industry label. In the fall of 2018, von RABBIT will release Dessert Rock, her second solo album and the follow-up to her 2015 LP Journey Mitchell, both on Dionysus Records. While Journey Mitchell is laden with new wave-influenced synths, keyboard melodic and infectious dance beats, Dessert Rock is an avalanche of appetizing amalgams that incorporate hints of calypso, sci-fi, psychedelic, rock, electro, and funk.

von RABBIT’s current band line-up includes former GRAM RABBIT guitarist and independent producer Ethan Allen, Dionysus Records’ Lee Joseph on bass, and drummer, Dan Kashuck. von RABBIT has performed at Desert Daze on the bill with IGGY POP and SLEEP and has shared stages with a diverse roster of acts including WANDA JACKSON, CAT POWER, DEATH VALLEY GIRLSTHE CRYSTAL METHOD and has toured with EAGLES OF DEATH METAL. Dubbed “The Queen of the Hi-Desert”, von RABBIT has a menu item named after her at the world renown Pappy & Harriet’s in Pioneertown, CA – the delicious “Nachos von Rabbit” and in spring of 2018, once again won Best Front Woman of the Coachella Valley at the Coachella Valley Weekly Music Awards.

She is drop dead gorgeous and has an absolutely incredible voice. But von RABBIT is more than a pretty chick singer. She is an innovative creator and expressionist as well as one hell of an entertainer… Her show is brilliantly nonsensical; a sonic and visual spectacle that is unlike any other and you cannot take your eyes away. She is an artist that you just have to keep coming back to see because you evolve every time you do. – Coachella Valley Weekly

12/9: The First Annual Quema Del Diablo Celebration in Joshua Tree


Joshua Tree, CA — Announcing Joshua Tree’s most interesting music and arts celebration yet with Quema del Diablo (the burning of the devil) on December 9th, 2017 at the Joshua Tree Retreat Center off Highway 62.

The two-day event is a recreation of the Guatemalan spiritual tradition of the releasing of evil spirits and bad vibes in the form of paper mache sculptures and figures. The weekend celebration will feature a host of bands, artists and other performers from places near and far. Headlining the event will be Boston’s Dead Poet Society along with featured acts Lujuria, Dave Catching (Eagles of Death Metal) with a special dj set, and Joshua Tree’s own Jesika Von Rabbit.

In addition to the music, there will be a collection of some of LA’s more progressive artists and sculptors Emmeric Konrad, Damon Robinson of Nomad, and Bad Otis Link, who has provided much of the festivals devil-inspired character. A pop-up art gallery will feature works for sale by the show’s participating artists along with a few surprises.

Event organizer Rolo Castillo thinks this is a great time to release your demons: “This event is a great way for people to release whatever bugged them this year by bringing paper-mache sculptures or other effigies that can be burned in the ceremony. For years we celebrated this event in Pomona and people would always comment after about how cathartic the experience was for them.”

The event will also include fire performers IgNight Flow and will culminate in a large parade featuring amazing costumes and sculptures that will be part of Saturday night’s symbolic burning ceremony. Overnight camping is encouraged with limited space available for RVs.

Proceeds from the event will help redevelop the Joshua Tree Retreat Center Farm.

For more information on the event, please visit quemadeldiablo.com. Tickets are $20 each and available at quema.eventbrite.com
