Tachevah has kicked off!
Hundreds of people crowded into the Spa Resort Parking lot and in front of the stage before the event even officially opened at 5 p.m. Wednesday.
Tribesmen took the stage for a high-energy jam to kick the night off. The band has played The Hue — but this was their biggest set to date.
“Cool vibe. Cool sound. Cool setup,” Tachevah judge and www.mydesert.com music guru Bruce Fessier tweeted.
And the Coachella-based band brought the crowd in!
People of all ages kicked around a beach ball, browsed the beer garden and posed like rock stars in the MyDesert.com photo booth as the Tribesmen provided the soundtrack for the beautiful night.

Tachevah organizers will announce the headlining artist on Friday morning — but we can’t wait until then.

The Goldenvoice-selected artist will rock downtown Palm Springs after opening acts The Pedestrians, Tribesmen, and You Me & Us, who won spots on the lineup after 95,000 votes were cast.
DJ Alf Alpha will keep the groove going between sets at the free block party.
