so who is all going to this,
lets get a roll call going.


The Good: I'm working today in my company's Costa Messa office which is only 2.5 miles from the Galaxy theater. And I Paypaled Spike on Monday for a Ticket.

The Bad: That ticket is probably going to be delivered this afternoon to my Santa Monica mailbox 50 miles away.

The Good: I can drown my sorrows at DTBC on the way home. I should be there by 5pm if anyone wants to debate which TJB album was better. Most will say the "Whipped Cream Girl" one but I like the one that has the airplane on it. Remember, these days it's all about "Latin-style".

John,
why did you give Spike that address to send it to?

you should have asked him to put them at will call for you.

hmmmm???
trying to figure out a way to remedy this.

you could just show up and pay to get in at the door.
but then you would be burning the extra tix.

John, it didn't get to you yet?? Shoots... I'll put you on the list and eat the extra ticket. No problem. Let me know if you're going to come to the show for sure.

Super excited to hear from all of the people who are coming tonight!
I really can't even explain how many times I've stood on the floor at the Galaxy and looked up at the stage. It must be well into the 50s by now... It's a super big deal for me and my band.
And while it won't be the same without Bong or Lucas Vigor up there with us, after only four or five practices, Mr. Gary Brandin and Mr. Christian Kessler are really adding something cool and different to the sound. Be sure to get there early as we will either go on as early as 8:00 or as late as 8:45.

Thanks again for all of the support! Cliches aside, I really couldn't be doing this without all of you guys.
Aloha, and let's show The Galaxy what the tiki community is all about tonight!

While it's true that neither Bong nor I will be there, we will be there in Spirit! My replacement for this gig is an EXCELLENT bass player, and you will not be dissapointed! As you may know, Bong is in Arizona with the Tikiyaki Orchestra (driving there right now, in fact, with Marty Lush behind the wheel and the Jerky Boys on the stereo!) and I am on vacation, drinking very heavily.

GREAT SHOW !! My favorite songs were "Waikiki Moon" and "Volcano". If Surf Music can be Tiki music then the Hula Girls prove that Rockabilly (or Hula-billy) can be too. This was 110% Tiki Music !!

Also the sexy hula dancers were a nice touch. It was like an alternate reality mid-century Polynesian floor show.

Thanks for the T-shirt, Spike. I'll wear it with Tiki pride.

What a great night of music! Cool Venue, awesome crowd, and stellar talent! Sadly my gal nor my partner in crime could attend, but I had a blast and met some ultra cool people including some TC'ers.

Here is a video clip I shot of "The Hula Girls" performing Volcano for you cats who couldn't make it or you dogs that did but just want MORE:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBd2Cd3-0zw

Be sure to watch in 720p for the best quality. Hey Hula Girls, I hope you don't mind, but I "borrowed" some art work for the beginning of the clip. Also dudes, its the entire song, so if this isn't cool, let me know and I'll pull it down. I plan on editing a "Hula Girls" sampler plate from last night next.

Mahalo for a killer show

Chris

Great video! Of course we don't mind you using that artwork or showing the whole video! Thanks a bunch for sharing!
What a great show last night! The dancers that Ray hooked us up with were amazing, our stand-ins, Christian and Gary, played flawlessly, and Dom and I did our thing a good as ever! I'm super happy with the whole show.

And the other bands were great too! Graceland Mafia did their non-rockabilly Elvis punk rock thing, Big Sandy and His Fly-Rite Boys delivered like they always do, and Los Straitjackets just crushed it. What a great night of music.

And really, we couldn't have done it without the support from a big bunch of you TCers! Thanks again! And see you at the next show!
The Hula Girls are going into the studio for our first session TODAY!

Hey Chris, I think I was standing right next to you in the pit.

Also a very interesting audience. There were hep cats, smokin' Betties, bikers, a small girl twirling around in a ballerina skirt, and some of the most um, "mature" hipsters I've seen at a show.

Quite a scene !!
