The Garages are joining us on Night Watch right now for a musical interlude!

They’ve also got a veritable treasure trove of Desert Bus merch, including a rad shirt/poster design by roux arlen (@RATWEDNESDAY), and a cassette tape (the classics!) which will include all the tracks from this year’s show as well as last year’s show. All of the proceeds from these sales will be donated to Child’s Play!

A bold, colorful poster shows a bus cresting a hill in the middle of the desert. A blue dragon grabs for the bus with its forepaw, snarling. The text reads "The Garages vs Desert Bus"

Tune in now to enjoy the show, maybe grab a band shirt, and don’t forget to tip your bus driver.
