The beauty and fearsomeness of the desert will be explored through music, comedy and a “performance lecture” during an Echo Park variety show on Saturday.  “The Desert,”  presented as part of the ongoing Variedades performance salon at The Echo, “will be a dramatic and poignant portrait of a place where Mexican migrants cross a searing land, monks seek spiritual purity, soldiers wage battle and students stage revolution,” according to the show’s producers.  Admission to “The Desert” – which includes performances by Culture Clash’s Richard Montoya, author and show host Ruben Martinez, folk figure Victoria Williams and performance artist Elia Arce – is $10.
