Fasten your seat belts, midcentury pop culture expert Charles Phoenix is taking us on a show and tell tour of historic local Palm Springs landmarks and epic architecture. This fun-filled experience reveals the legendary midcentury modern homes, retro resorts, classic neighborhoods, commercial and civic buildings, and spectacular style that has made Palm Springs a world-famous. Charles also dishes on his favorite local restaurants, bars, boutiques, hidden treasures and other not-to-be-missed attractions.
Charles Phoenix is a performer, author, collector, and curator celebrating classic and kitschy American life and style. He is known for spirited live “slide show” performances, classic car Joyride videos, colorful coffee table books, and fun “field trip” tours. His latest book is Holiday Jubilee. The New York Times says: “Call him the King of Retro.”
