Sep 8, 2006 - 08:09 AMTonight at 6:45pm, catch the opening chords of this year's Cracker and Camper Van Beethoven Campout in Pioneertown, continuing through Saturday night:
[...] fans of all brands of independent rock will congregate in the spaghetti-western setting of Pioneertown, California, for a music and camping festival sponsored by the headlining bands Cracker and Camper Van Beethoven.
[...] The festival, now in its second year, is put on jointly by the two bands, Los Angeles radio station KCRW, singer David Lowery's own label Pitch-a-Tent, and the proprietors of the legendary saloon and festival site, Pappy and Harriet's Pioneertown Palace. (Of historical note, the adjoining Sound Stage, next to the Palace, is where Cracker recorded their 1995 chart-topping album Kerosene Hat.)
NB: The event's video is pretty cool, too.
