About us

"In 2003, Robyn Celia and Linda Krantz took over Pappy and Harriet’s Pioneertown Palace, a dusty desert roadhouse that they’ve since turned into one of California’s most unique live music venues. A two-hour drive from Los Angeles, it’s next to a defunct movie set built with the help of Roy Rogers in the 1940s, complete with empty saloon, jail and bank facades. Pappy’s clientele is a Lynchian mix of bikers, hipsters and the occasional celebrity like Anne Hathaway (who stopped by for nachos the night after her Oscar win) and Kesha (who sang a Bob Dylan song during an open mic night)." ~ Carolyn Ryder NY Times Style Magazine
