The Californian Desert music scene, which gave birth to bands like Kyuss and Queens of the Stone Age, was basically started by revolving punk rock kids, hidden from narrow-minded authorities of suburban, desert communities in the early 80s, became a vibe over the years. Desert Rock, often misinterpreted as musical genre continued its international underground spread until today.
This is a close look from within its origin on the beginnings: never-ending jams in the middle of the desert. This film is narrated by Josh Homme, Brant Bjork, Mario Lalli and many others. It provides a unique insight into the history of the Coachella Valley music scene.
