Pappy & Harriet’s, a hidden gem that makes you feel like you’re in a wild west saloon set from Hollywood’s golden age because, well, it is, plays host to the second annual Manimal Festival on October 3 and 4. The atmosphere of the place is enchanting, what with a blanket of stars overheard and the crisp air of autumn in the open desert. It’s without compare, especially in LA county. The lineup is one to be reckoned with too. On one hand you have the primal stomp and swagger of Edward Sharpe, Fool’s Gold, and Warpaint, and on the other you have the intoxicating, cosmic explorations of Rio en Medio and Amanda Jo Williams, mentioned yesterday on this very blog. Take a sweater or at least a blanket; it’s going to get chilly. Especially if you plan on wandering out into the desert buttes and sleeping under the moon, this festival will be magical.
