Some of the acts coming to Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio include AC/DC, Pink Floyd and U2 tribute bands.

Sure the weather has been rainy, windy and downright crummy these past few weeks, but the warm weather is coming, and what better way to enjoy the outdoors than with beer and free concerts?

The Rock Yard concert series at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino will kick off its 12th season at the Indio resort on Saturday, March 23, with Van Halen tribute band Atomic Punks and cover band Thank-U-Drive Thru. There will be tribute bands every Saturday night and some Friday nights through Nov. 23.

There is no charge for the concerts, which take place over five hours at the resort’s amphitheater-style outdoor area with two stages side by side for guests 18 and older. The space can hold up to 3,000 fans. Tributes to Stevie Nicks, Led Zeppelin, U2 and Pink Floyd are scheduled for the coming weeks.
