This past Saturday, the Third Annual Manimal Festival was held at Pappy and Harriet's Palace in Pioneertown near Yucca Valley, with performances by Diva (BlackBlack, Pocahaunted), Halloween Swim Team, Religious Girls, Gangi, Kenneth Pattengale, Sister Crayon, Dreamtapes, Love Grenades, Dante vs. Zombies, Afghan Raiders, Papercranes, Swahili Blonde, Aska (Moonrats), The Like, Amanda Jo Williams, Juliette Commagere, St. Clair Board, TEARIST, and Jeffertiti's Nile. Despite the mild weather, attendance was unfortunately down from last year, perhaps due to the threat of thunderstorms in the daytime, not to mention the multitude of weekend music options like the Eagle Rock Music Festival and Matador at 21 in Las Vegas. But those who were adventurous enough to make the journey were rewarded with twelve hours of eclectic music befitting the Highland Park-based Manimal Vinyl label.
