Ain’t No Glory in the West
Over the last couple of years, Orville Peck has quickly become my favorite musician out there performing today. His unique country sound and style makes him a living Gram Parsons for me (and if you’ve been reading the blog for awhile, you know Parsons is one of my all-time faves), and I made it my goal to see him perform live once things opened back up. When he announced he was performing at both Coachella and Stagecoach music festivals in Indio, all I could think of was how easy it would be for him to just pop up to the not too far Pappy & Harriet’s in Pioneertown and do a show, well, he did and I was over the moon!
We snapped some outfit photos quickly while the light was still good in the middle of our pre-show dinner at the Red Dog Saloon, which is located at the end of Pioneertown’s Mane Street (yes, it’s really mane, like a horse’s mane), for delicious tacos.
As the sun set, Peck took to the stage in all of his fringe and rhinestone glory. Pappy & Harriet’s really is a unique and wonderful place to see a show. While I still would love to see a show inside, I was thankful for the outdoor experience, as we still have COVID running around, and I donned an appropriate fringed mask during the show.
Peck was followed by country legend Tanya Tucker, who while I adore, we didn’t stay for too long, as we had a two hour drive home, and when the euphoria of Peck’s set ended I realized just how much my feet hurt.
This was actually the first of three times I’m seeing Peck this year. Yes, I said three. And it’s kind of on accident. He announced his tour with a date in Oakland far before he announced the date at Pappy & Harriet’s, so we bought tickets for the Oakland show. Then he announced the Pappy & Harriet’s show, and I wasn’t going to pass up finally seeing a show there after visiting so many times before. Then Palomino Festival, a new, one day music festival happening in July in Pasadena was announce, with Peck, and many other musicians I’ve wanted to see all playing! So I bought tickets for it too. The Oakland show is next month and I’m looking forward to finally getting out for a mini road trip.
If you’re unfamiliar with the masked cowboy, then check out this music video from his latest album, Bronco, below to get a good vibe for Peck’s sound and style. And if you fall in love, you can check out his website here.
Pappy & Harriet’s Pioneertown Palace is located at 53688 Pioneertown Road in Pioneertown. I highly recommend visiting Pappy & Harriet’s for a show, or just for a bite to eat. It’s such a unique and wonderful place up in the high desert. If you’re unfamiliar with Pappy & Harriet’s, you can check out my post about it here.

Awesome outfit for this wonderful concert. How exciting that you’ll be seeing your favourite performer on three different occasions in the same year. That rocks (and rolls)!!!
