Desertscene are proud to welcome desert rock pioneers Yawning Man to The Black Heart on June 1st.
Born among the sand dunes of La Quinta, California in 1986, Yawning Man struck up the perfect sound for their surroundings; raw, flowing and psyched-out. Often playing generator parties deep in the desert, their open air jams made a huge impact on many who went on to lead the stoner rock scene. Brant Bjork, for one, has proudly stated Yawning Man are the greatest band he's ever seen.
As if it wasn't impressive enough that they inspired many of the founding fathers of the stoner rock scene, they managed to gain their reverence without a single release for almost twenty years. The band's first official releases - the Pot Head EP and Rock Formations - dropped in 2005, confirming to the wider scene what they'd already been told; Yawning Man jam hard.
If you want to find out just how hard they jam, book your tickets today.
