2019 RECAP // LUNA + DEAN WAREHAM PERFORMING GALAXIE 500

Last years' launch of our new outdoor theater in downtown Joshua Tree marked the beginning of a brand new era for Desert Stars! 

We couldn't have asked for a better kick off to our new theater in 2019! Luna and a Galaxie 500 set from Dean Wareham alongside a slew of other great acts was nothing shy of spectacular. Thank you to all of the fans, friends, bands, crew and volunteers who helped launch DESERT STARS OUTDOOR THEATER in Joshua Tree, CA on March 29th and 30th, 2019.
