Dot Hacker 6/16/13 at Pappy and Harriet’s in Pioneertown, CA

Dot Hacker is one of my favorite bands to see live, so much so that I drove to the desert to see them last Sunday!  They hadn’t played in a while…Josh’s other band, (you know, RHCP…) has kept him busy, but they sounded great and played several songs off of their debut album, Inhibition, plus a new song (Floating up the Stairs) and a Tears for Fears cover (Memories Fade).  Each member of the band is so talented and their songs are beautifully crafted!  When the sounds are layered together live, it creates a sonic wall that just engulfs you.

Pappy and Harriet‘s is an interesting venue; a restaurant and saloon situated in Pioneertown serving as a gateway to the Mojave desert, the Joshua Tree and good times.  They have great food, lots of parking, welcome motorcycles, Lagunitas on tap, pool tables, friendly staff and a great booking agent.  Their calendar always has interesting, quality music.  I’m glad I finally made the trip for a concert, and not just a pit stop to/from Joshua Tree.

Dot Hacker’s next Los Angeles gig is at the Troubdour on June 29th, where they are opening again for ZAVALAZ.  The show is sold out. Other tour dates can be found on their website: http://dothacker.org

Dot Hacker setlist 6/16/13

Side note: They opened for ZAVALAZ, which is a new band by Cedric Bixler-Zavala (The Mars Volta and At The Drive In.)  I was told that I could photograph Dot Hacker, but that ZAVALAZ had a strict no photo/video policy, which I respected.  Below, are the photos of Dot Hacker:

Dot Hacker is:  Josh Klinghoffer (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Clint Walsh (guitar, keyboards, backing vocals), Jonathan Hischke (bass) and Eric Gardner (drums).
