Cracker & Camper Van Beethoven Camp Out X at Pappy & Harriet's

Friday September 12th
Pappy & Harriet's Pioneertown Palace, 53688 Pioneertown Rd. 92268
Tix are $25 for Friday, the night we play, or $75 for the whole weekend.

I remember 20+ years ago hanging out at a friend's house in high school smoking bad weed and sharing great music on his crappy battery powered CD player boombox.
He couldn't believe I hadn't heard of Camper Van Beethoven or Cracker. So he broke out the albums in their cracked & worn CD jewel cases and fired up some tunes.
We listened for hours. I've been a big fan ever since.
I emailed that buddy that we're playing with 'em, as we are still friends all these years later, and he said "Amazing!"
Also, right after I received the email from their booking agent asking us to play the Campout, I was headed out in our band Van to go pick up the fellas for a trip to play some shows up by Yosemite. "Pictures Of Matchstick Men" came on the radio just as I was getting on the freeway.
I turned it way up.
8pm  Paul Chesne Band
The Dangers w Johnny Hickman
Looking forward to this!
