I know. That's even CRAZIER! Although, that one usually REALLY does require a lot of planning, reserving hotel rooms, etc. and has a lot more people coming from abroad.

GROG may have to make it out to this one, though.

Groggy,
of the 300 or so that came to the SG101 convention last year.
besides the bands from out of town, and Europe,
I'd say that about 50 of the spectators were not from So. Cal.

and there is a great Motel down the Street, for Cheep,
Don's turf motel,
can you say Surf n Turf?

plus there is the 3 bar shows the night before the event,
and the HB pier show the day after the event.

Why wouldn't people that enjoy surf and tiki,
not wanna come out for the whole 9 day week,
and do this, and Tiki Oasis?

Jeff(btd)

BIGtikidude,

I've attended the last two SG101 shows, the pre shows in San Diego and post shows at DTB. I plan on doing the same this year. It is a super cool deal!

Last year I had a buddy fly out from Maryland for a tiki event (that will remain unnamed) scheduled for the weekend after the SG101 show. My buddy flew out early in time to make the Friday night pre sg101 show in San Diego and we both attended the convention and DTB show. That was his first time to DTB and he was really stoked on the whole scene and experience in the Dagger bar that night. Sick tunes, killer food and an original DTB zombie. It was perfect except for the long car ride back home. It was nice to share such a bitchin scene like that with a good old friend who appreciated it. Other than having drinks at Bali Hai this was his first tiki experience and my most memorable for sure!

So for me, Having a family, being budget minded, and attempting to get folks in from the right coast, I appreciate the early heads-up.

However, I also understand the need for a larger polynesian themed event held in SD to be considerate of it's attendees and post limited information and dates as early as possible. I appreciate that too.

As mentioned earlier in this thread the large poly pop themed weekend requires planning ahead like booking a hotel room. It woudl be nice if this large event with lots of attendees was in an area with amble lodging options so finding a room wouldn't be such an issue. Maybe it should be moved from Hotel Circle North to Hotel Circle South?

For the record, I've attended the large San Diego event many many times and will be doing the same this year. I look forward to it every year. I enjoy it an appreciate all the effort put into it. It is a wonderful experience. I pretty much think it's perfect just the way it is.

BTD, live long, post early and post often

Late!
SK

Sofa King,

thanks for the post and the heads up.
did we meet last year?
I vaguely recall possibly meeting you at Dons on Sunday.
but the weekend is a blur.

I think its cool that you guys did both weekend events,
and hope that more will do the same.

cheers
Jeff(btd)

BTD,

We didn't talk that night at Dons. We have chatted a handful of times usually at San Diego shows.

I really enjoy attending both events. I feel fortunate to do so.

SK

I will be there (but don't let that be a deterrent, folks!)

This is probably one of the better surf rock events, and probably because Jeff Big Wookie Dude does an excellent job of setting the whole thing up. I won't be at oasis, but I will be here!

If you bring the banana laden go-go girls to the Disasternauts SG101 After-Party show at The Doll Hut I think we could overlook some head banging...

Really Looking forward to having the Florida bands at the event this year.
Can't wait, but please, no poo flinging.


oh, and don't think the Disasternauts corner the market on Gorilla masks,
The Pyronauts from Sacramento area get in on that too, but alas they are not playing this year.

har!!!

as much as I like Ape, and other Tiki bands,
read John O's post above or on the previous page.
He says the great think about the SG101 convention,
is it's purity and not mixing genres of music or sub cultures.


Even though tiki is a bigger sub culture than surf,
there are way more surf bands than tiki bands.
So I am able to pick from the best each year to bring the people
a truly great show, and diverse mix of bands from around the USA,
and 2 European bands.

Jeff(btd)
