BigBro, It was like the 6 shows I have been to all rolled up into one. Your, "how it all got started", artifacts were a perfect companion. Seeing all the originals was simply amazing. Seeing the transition from the early works to now. Like going from your brownie camera to a new digital. The only pieces that you could not see real well were behind the Shag line, or the store line or behind the band. It did get a little tight.
If Josh did not want to think that people liked his works before (modesty wise) he has no choice now!

That Brea Gallery was real nice. a very new, modern and good looking venue. The place was packed and there was a good deal of shag art.
BigBroTiki had loaned some of his collection and it was displayed in little plexiglass boxes, very cool.

This event was great, just too many people all up in the Cheerrios. I loved the art and was trying to study the artifacts in the glass case, but decided to grab something to drink and head outside. That was where the real show was. King Kukulele was messing with folks and having a ball. You gotta love that guy. Then Bamboo Ben and King Kuku go and heckle the press, but in a nice way with 9 inch fangs. The best was seeing King Kuku holding Otto's baby. I never would have imagined that King kuku had a soft spot for kids. I think he was just trying to bum a ride. Rumor has it that King Kuku had his international rally car on two wheels the whole way over to the gallery after it lost a wheel. I hope the vert is ok now Danny.

Great pics, Al.

An amazing show and an incredible body of work!

Holden said it best -- "I think someday we'll look back and be happy to say that we 'were there' as I'm thinking that particular Shag show will go down in history!"

Aloha,

Uncle Arty

I particularly enjoyed hanging with Ben... and the cop... while Ben and I were pounding beers! Billy Shire (Soap Plant Whacko/La Luz de Jesus) should be commended for ultimately being an integral part of recognizing the talent and starting the craze that has brought Shag to us - Shag's work stands alone by itself but Billy is a guy who is known to recognize a lot of good talent first. Sorry I burned out early at the Continental but I was on day 5 of a nasty summer cold! Nice to see all of the good tiki centralites - dangnabit - those are great folks!

I would have to agree with Ben. Tunes were great, Shag looked a little tired from the signing. Enjoyed the wine and California rolls. Was a little crowded (should have seen the gift shop!!). Just awesome to have all Shag's great works in one room. Thanks BigBro, was also neat seeing some of your collection. -Angelo

Uncle Arty sent me these great pics.

The Dynotones,great band

Cherry Capri. I got a kick out of the fact Cherry was recognized by 4 enthusiastic, very cool Japanese fans. they looked like the 5678's. They obviously dug the Thurston Howlies



Shag Swag.

Hey Futura Girl,

Man, this brings back some great memories! I first met you at the Brea show, and I remember taking those pix of you and Shelly. I believe I still have some of those pix on a CD somewhere at home (I'm at work now).

I'll look for them and send them to you.

P.S. Love your webpage!
