The Coachella Valley is an odd place. Months can go by without a decent act that people under the age of 70 may actually enjoy – then, two funny comedians are scheduled…but on the same freakin’ day!
Amy Schumer and Ralphie May are just a couple of options for you to get your fun on in The Greater Palm Springs area this weekend:
Big Bad Voodoo Daddy
Yes, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy is (a) still around, and (b) performing in Rancho Mirage Saturday night.
The band was one of the bigger acts in the resurgence of swing in the 1990’s, had a big hit with You & Me & the Bottle Makes 3 Tonight (Baby)”, and even performed a Super Bowl halftime show (do you remember that? I did not).
Tickets are $40 – $70 for the 8pm show Agua Caliente Casino Resort
Comedian Amy Schumer brings her stand up comedy to Fantasy Springs Resort Casino Saturday. The star of Inside Amy Schumer and the upcoming summer flick ‘Trainwreck’ takes the stage at 8pm.
Tickets run $39 – $79 Fantasy Springs Casino.
Ralphie May has been performing standup professionally since he was just 17-years-old, when he would open for the late Sam Sam Kinison. He will be bringing the funny to Spotlight 29 Saturday night at 8pm
$25-$35 gets you in to the show – Spotlight 29 Casino
The band, best known for “Low”, roll into Pappy and Harriet’s in Pioneertown Sunday night. The band released their tenth (!) studio album, entitled Berkeley To Bakersfield, in December.
Tickets are $20. Doors open at 7, show is at 9. Pappy & Harriet’s

Okay, so this might seem like a letdown, not being a concert or anything – but The Plant Sale is a good chance to get your backyard looking a little better all while saving some cash.
