Lifestyle information, entertainment news, and humor for Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley.

The 111 Music Festival which is - and I swear to you I am not making this up - a Sunday afternoon thing where local bands cram into the back of a few city buses to try to perform and, if they are lucky, maybe even take home a couple of gift cards all while the passengers of the bus, well, let's say tolerate it, returns this weekend for a remarkable 6th year.
Here's what's happening this weekend in Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley.
Brian Setzer Orchestra’s Christmas Rocks! Tour, which is usually one of the highlights of the Holiday Season when it makes its annual stop into the Coachella Valley, will not take place this year as the originally scheduled show at the McCallum Theater on Friday, December 20 has been cancelled due to a severe case of tinnitus.
Nelly, who seems to book a performance every five or six months at one of the Greater Palm Springs Area's casinos, was in the middle of a concert on Saturday at The Show at Agua Caliente Casino in Rancho Mirage when an eager fan decided their front row seat just wasn't close enough to the rapper and yanked him off the stage - which, and I shouldn't have to tell you this, is a no-no at a Nelly concert...or any concert, really.
Renée Zellweger is the first celebrity announced to attend the 2020 Palm Springs Rich People Prom in Palm Springs. Zellweger will be on-hand to get an award of some type, but mostly to try to get some Oscar buzz, for her role in the Judy Garland movie we might one day see if / when it arrives on Netflix.
The Date Harvest is bringing artisan food, cocktails, live entertainment, and more to the City of Coachella on Saturday. Cactus Hugs has already gone over why this looks like a festival you should might want to get excited about and we were invited to check out the festival grounds a day in advance. Here is what we saw.
The 2019 Relay for Life will take place this Saturday at Freedom Park in Palm Desert. The fundraising event, which is put on by the American Cancer Society unites the community to save lives from cancer, will include a Happy Hour for the first time this year.
Hopefully, you have not yet made your Thanksgiving plans - as you may have to head to the gigantic Kardashian residence at the Madison Club in La Quinta to make sure the family of, ummm, let's say entrepreneurs (?) is able to feast on Turkey Day.
Mary Hart has been named as this year’s Celebrity Grand Marshal for the 27th Annual Palm Springs Festival of Lights Parade, presented by Desert Wraps.
The American Hockey League team coming to Palm Springs doesn't even have a name yet (still hoping for Fightin' Snowbirds), but they are hosting a get-together for fans next week.
