We touched down at LAX Wednesday morning after a long flight, replete with shenanigans, and plenty of nonsense, including Priest completely destroying an overhead bin (total accident). Apologies to both the flight and maintenance crews, of course. 

We got the shiny wheels rolling out on Interstate 10 and floored it full-tilt to Indio!  We arrived at the luxurious digs and immediately transformed it into the magnificent RadioBDC/Sapporo House. After a long, hot day in the desert, we all eventually found our way to dreamland after some sloppy, half-cooked pizza and a few ice-cold Sapporo’s. 

Goodnight!
 
At 5:30 a.m. the next day, we all got busy setting up the broadcast and video production equipment in anticipation of all the amazing bands rolling by throughout the weekend.  With the California sun beating down hard, and sunscreen and sweat dripping out of every pore, we finally got everything up and running. Then into the emerald pool for a cool down. 

As sunset came upon us, we fired up the grill and tossed a whole mess of gnarly steaks on there. Somebody’s brilliant idea lead us to the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino where after some horrible luck at a few Blackjack tables and few watered-down beverages we left beaten and broke, however the team's spirits remained cheerful enough to keep a few of us up straight through to dawn's approach.
 
We awoke to find a member of the video crew wily-eyed and saucy, manning a vicious pan of steak and eggs. Who knows where this day is heading…Stay tuned  to find out!
