DOOM LEGEND WINO TO FLY SOLO AT DESERTFEST!
The Obsessed and Saint Vitus frontman is coming to Desertfest and this time he’s bringing his acoustic tales of sorrow.
Scott “Wino” Weinrich really needs no introduction for any self-respecting fan of doom, stoner, or punk, but for the few uninitiated, Wino has been kicking arses since 1976 in bands such as the Obsessed, Saint Vitus, Spirit Caravan, Shrinebuilder (…shall I keep going?). In sort, he’s released tons of albums, toured the world and has been a standard-bearer for doom for decades.
However, slightly less well-known are Wino’s fantastic acoustic records with the likes of German songwriter Conny Ochs (with whom he’s released two albums) and his collection of Townes Van Zandt covers with fellow lifers Scott Kelly and Steve Von Till.
So prepare to be enraptured by a rare and intimate acoustic show from the legendary troubadour at Desertfest 2018.
