Palm Desert Concerts in the Park

Rose's Pawn Shop

Palm Desert's Civic Center Park Amphitheater is once again the hot spot for live music in May! Residents and visitors alike flock to the Palm Desert Civic Center Park every Thursday evening in May for the City's free Concerts in the Park. Held on the terraced lawn of the Civic Center Park Amphitheater, music lovers can look forward to diverse musical offerings from reggae to R&B, country to indie and more. This week's featured band is Rose's Pawn Shop. With an arsenal of guitars, banjo, thumping upright bass, fiddle and drums, delivering neo-classical-sounding melodies and lyrics, Rose's Pawn Shop's sound is a wholesome mishmash of creek mud, rusty nails and your mom’s cookin’. It’s sincere and straight-forward, effortlessly combining such disparate musical styles as rock, country, bluegrass, and punk to create an incomprehensibly smooth and accessible sound for true believers and skeptics alike. Concertgoers are encouraged to bring picnic baskets, blankets, and lawn chairs. Food trucks will be onsite with tasty food options, beverages and snacks for purchase. Alcoholic beverages and smoking are prohibited.
