Desert Daze 2013: Jeffertitti's Nile Live Review

Local psych rock outfit, Jeffertitti’s Nile brought their high energy show to the Moon Stage at Desert Daze during the heat of the day. Opening the set with their latest single, “Upside” (streaming below), was unexpected, but perfect for the setting, as it drew the crowd from across the campsite right into their lap. Despite the unrelenting heat of the sun and layers of dust, the band performed as if it was The Hollywood Bowl. From the shiny jackets to the amazing gear, their authenticity as rock stars was fun to watch and engaging from first note to last. Their love for what they do and their sincere appreciation for the fans was palpable and refreshing. They quickly won me over as my new favorite local band, especially in this genre. With a Sgt. Pepper’s meets The Doors vibe, they created space and atmosphere within songs without losing focus. It provided the best of both worlds - great songwriting with arrangements to get lost in, while maintaining great energy and dynamics that always kept your attention. Lead singer and guitarist, Jeffertitti Moon’s sensitive touch and innate ability to infuse tonal qualities and sound design elements throughout the set mixed with drummer, Ignacio Gonzalez’s off kilter rhythms, not to mention keyboardist, Alyson Kennon’s drool-worthy set up including a Rhodes and a 70s mini Korg, made for the perfect mid-day pick-me-up set amidst a long string of jam sessions. Keep your eye on these kids, they’re sure to be on everyone’s radar before long. - Jacqueline Caruso
