Guitarist Alain Johannes is part of an extended family of desert rock musicians.
He was born in Chile; his mother, Rosemarie Moschulski, lives in Palm Springs; and he's played with some of the leading exponents of desert rock since the 1980s.
His band, Eleven, opened for Pearl Jam in the first major concert at the Empire Polo Club in 1993. His latest band, Them Crooked Vultures, features John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin, Dave Grohl of Nirvana and the Foo Fighters, and Joshua Homme of Queens of the Stone Age.
On Saturday, he'll perform solo at Pappy and Harriet's Palace in Pioneertown, opening for fellow desert rock sculptors Earthlings?, featuring Dave Catching of Eagles of Death Metal, and Sweethead, featuring Troy Van Leeuwen of Queens of the Stone Age.
