June means the start of summer—and a relatively quiet month as far as big events go. However, never fear, because there’s still plenty of entertainment to enjoy.

The Fantasy Springs Resort Casino’s Special Events Center is fairly calm in June, but the Rock Yard is in full swing on Saturday nights. Here’s the list of performers, with each show starting at 7:30 p.m. June 1: Journey tribute band Escape. June 8: Sammy Hagar tribute band Three Lock Box.

Agua Caliente Resort Casino Spa Rancho Mirage has a fine June slate. At 8 p.m., Friday, June 7, Mexican singer-songwriter Christian Nodal will be performing. When he released his first album Me Dejé Llevar in 2017, he took the music charts by storm, with the album reaching No. 2 on the Billboard Latin Albums chart. The 20-year-old recently released a new album, Ahora, and his star is continuing to rise. Tickets are $65 to $125. At 7 p.m., Saturday, June 15, Art Laboe’s Love Jam VIII will be happening.

Published in Previews

If you don’t yet know the music of Jennifer Corday, you will soon. The Long Beach native has called Palm Springs home for about six months now, and is playing more and more around town; for example, you can catch her regularly at Oscar’s Café and Bar in Palm Springs, and she’ll be at the Rock Yard at Fantasy Springs on Saturday, May 23, with her full band, Classic Rock Revolution (classicrockrevolution.com). Learn more at jennifercorday.com. Here are her answers to The Lucky 13!

What was the first concert you attended?

A Flock of Seagulls at Bogart’s in Long Beach. But Howard Jones and Bon Jovi at Irvine Meadows were the first big ones!

What was the first album you owned?

Rick Springfield—oh, how I wanted to be Jessie’s Girl. I had a mad crush on Andy Gibb. And AC/DC’s Back in Black, played LOUD.

What bands are you listening to right now?

I’m digging a few songs from the 50 Shades of Grey soundtrack right now: Annie Lennox’s cover of “I Put a Spell on You”—she kills it, almost better than Manson—and “Earned It” from The Weeknd. And Maroon 5; I can never get enough of Adam’s sweet hooks!

What artist, genre or musical trend does everyone love, but you don’t get?

I appreciate just about everything, but I get particularly irritated when a song is on the radio with ridiculously shallow lyrics and no melody to speak of.

What musical act, current or defunct, would you most like to see perform live?

Zeppelin, Joplin and Gaga.

What’s your favorite musical guilty pleasure?

Old Madonna albums. Or new Taylor Swift.

What’s your favorite music venue?

To play: I always dig House of Blues’ sound and lights, but the Rock Yard at Fantasy Springs is a blast. We play on the outdoor stage surrounded by ponds (which always makes rocking out interesting, as one COULD fall in), with a packed crowd rockin’ out under the stars! Let’s not forget Oscar’s, my new favorite Palm Springs local spot which I play regularly.

What’s the one song lyric you can’t get out of your head?

“Your sugar, yes, please. Won’t you come and put it down on me?” Maroon 5, “Sugar.”

What band or artist changed your life? How?

Melissa Etheridge. Gay girl with guitar gets famous, discovered at the local bar! Hey, maybe that could happen to me?

You have one question to ask one musician. What’s the question, and who are you asking?

Kurt Cobain: “Tell me everything.”

What song would you like played at your funeral?

“At Last” by Etta James, because love is really all there is, and how lucky am I that I did find it at last? And then I want to blast something ridiculously fun, like “Rock and Roll All Nite” by Kiss.

Figurative gun to your head, what is your favorite album of all time?

Oh, don’t make me pick one. Bon Jovi’s Slippery When Wet. The Best of Led Zeppelin Disc 2. And more off the radar: Poe’s Haunted is another all-time favorite.

What song should everyone listen to right now?

My new album: Tastiest Licks, a greatest hits collection, packed with 20 songs including several award-winners.
