Finally got the scoop on the "tiki" bar on 6th St. Sorry for the crappy cell phone pic.


It's called Malaia. We didn't stay long, just looked, so this is my 5 minute impression. It's very similar to Pangaea, melding a sort of bamboo/tropical/exotic/African/tribal thing with a sort of ultra-modern thing. It's worth a look to check it out, but definitely not tiki in our sense of a tiki bar. It's a dance club with several floors. Walls are covered in bamboo and the DJ booth in matting. Several framed tiki masks right when you walk in. HUGE black mask over the bar with glowing red eyes and stick hair. Elephant head sconces with orange flicker bulbs. Bar front faced with modern sculptural ivory colored panels. Techno music pumping loudly. So there you have it.

Thanks Ben! We get quite a few of those. The neighbors even call me with sunset alerts to make sure I don't miss one. If you like that one, here are a few more of my faves from the balcony.







For the Austinites reading this: Please support your local musicians on Oct.7 during HAAM Benefit Day!
http://www.healthallianceforaustinmusicians.org/innerpage.php?pageid=173
HAAM provides financial assistance with medical and dental needs for uninsured local musicians. Sponsors donate 5% to HAAM on Oct. 7. Check website for list of sponsors and show schedule. It's a great cause!
I am working this event. If anyone would like to meet up for drinks and/or more music at the end of my shifts that evening, PM me if you're interested. Right now it looks like my last band might be changing, but I'll have more complete info later.
