Whether or not anything on the premises formally qualifies as a love shack is probably best left up to whoever's owning it at any given time, but however you want to describe the Airstream compound known as "Kate's Lazy Desert," its current owners, Kate Pierson and her wife, Monica Nation, have put it up for sale.

Located in Landers, California, which - in case you're trying to get your bearings - is about two hours and 45 minutes from Los Angeles and about three and a half hours from Las Vegas, "Kate's Lazy Desert" consists of six Airstream campers, and they are indeed just as funky as you'd want trailers owned by Kate Pierson to be.

When she's not busy selling her real estate, Pierson is still a member of the B-52's, thankfully, and although they've now finished their days as road warriors, having completed their final tour, that isn't stopping them from continuing to play live. They're currently in the midst of a residency at the Venetian Resort in Las Vegas, one which continues through this weekend - there are shows on April 19th and 20th - and then resumes in November with dates from November 13-16.

Although the band hasn't released a new studio album since 2008's Funplex, Pierson released her debut solo album, Guitars and Microphones, in 2015.
