Of all the Coachella Valley musicians who have walked The Lucky 13 gauntlet so far, Zach Huskey is the most mysterious. The Dali’s Llama vocalist/guitar-player told us his age was “40ish.” His day job? “Sorry, that’s classified.” Where does he live? “The desert.” Catch the man of mystery and his heavy-rock band mates at 9:30 p.m., this Saturday, March 9, for a “heavy night of music” at The Hood Bar and Pizza, 74360 Highway 111 in Palm Desert. Admission is free; the bill also includes the Whores of Tijuana and Lazy Cobra. For more information on the band—which is still celebrating the release of its new album, Autumn Woods—visit www.reverbnation.com/dalisllama.
