Sound Garden

We can’t think of a better band to perform at Desert Botanical Garden than Try Me Bicycle. It’s a perfect marriage, really, as the alt/lounge group’s kickback vibe — showcasing Andrew Naylor’s peaceful lyrics and Jacob Koller’s chill-inducing piano chords — should meld well with the natural desert surroundings. It’s definitely more fitting than seeing the band play at, say, a death-metal club. (If you were to mosh to this music, you'd be one crazy weirdo.)
