Mezcal Tasting with Exo Proprietor Doug Smith

Mezcal is a complex and fascinating world. Distilled from agave, arguably no spirt expresses place-based tradition--history, culture, ecology, cosmology--more eloquently than mezcal. Please join us for a tasting of five mezcals representing diverse terroirs. In addition to savoring some of the best mezcal has to offer, you will learn something about the geography, production methods, and flavor profiles that make the spirit unique. 

Doug Smith is the owner of Exo Roast Co and has travleed extensively in Mexico. Coffee and Mezcal are twin passions and have much in common with one another in terms of geography, growing practices and local economies. We invite you to learn beside us as we explore these intersections of plant and culture. 

The tasting is from 6 to 7 PM and will include samples of 5 mezcals and a small appetizer. This event will be limited to 10 people.

Loveland (Tucson) + Adobe Collective (Joshua Tree) LISTENING SHOW!

 

Join us for an intimate, listening show at Exo with our new evening offerings (wine, mescal, food). Venerable Tucson favorites Loveland opens the show for Adobe Collective. Doors at 8. Music at 9:00 PM. 

www.theadobecollective.com

The Adobe Collective is a musical project founded by husband and wife duo Tim & Faith Chinnock. The project is based in 29 Palms, CA which is in a corner of the Mojave desert of Southern California just outside of Joshua Tree. Tim and Faith have been lovers since they were kids, and it is clear in the way their voices meld together, at times indistinguishable from one another. 

Their latest album Take Heart, Take Care is a product of daily life in the desert tempered by serious time in the recording studio. The album was recorded at High Lonesome Studio in Joshua Tree and while rooted in roots/folk sensibility with a focus on lush vocal harmonies, there are also elements of country, rock, and even brief forays into psychedelia. This album, along with well-attended local shows, has brought the group some local attention. They have been mentioned in Desert Magazine, Palm Springs Life Magazine, and were twice featured in Coachella Valley Weekly. In addition, the album was nominated for Best Unsigned Album of the Year by Coachella Valley Weekly, and included in The Desert Sun newspaper’s list of 20 Albums to Discover the High Desert Sound alongside artists like Gram Parsons, Queens of the Stone Age, and Cracker.
The Adobe Collective's live show is a mix of heartfelt lyrics, powerful dynamic twists, and moments of rollicking joy! Guitarist Chris Unck (Butch Walker and the Black Roses, Telstar) brings grit and heart, Bassist Spencer Keizer (The Renderers, and more) is full of love and vibes, and Drummer Caleb Winn (State Bird, Pappy& Harriet's Sunday Band, and others) keeps the music moving. 
The group is hard at work on a third album and plans to complete recording this year.
