Hey Gang,
We thought that we would give you the heads up on a great art show we have planned at the store. We are planning a show that is a little different from most regular galleries. We have invited artists to paint on actual vintage objects, i.e.. tiki mugs, black panthers, oriental figurines, etc. that will be displayed through out our store and mixed in with our regular merchandise.It will be another typical Starlite shin dig with all the neccessary elements. Art, band, and booze! Swing on by! The following is the official hub bub.

Starlite Room is celebrating it's 7 year anniversary and we have an itch to do something a little different.

You're invited to join us and REDRUM for the premiere of our new venture, "KUSTOMIZED KITSCH", painted on vintage pop icons. We're kicking this off with a group art show and party featuring select artists who dare stray from the canvas and on to actual vintage objects.

Dave Burke ~Dan Collins~Kirsten Easthope
E-Dog~Extremo The Clown~Alan Forbes
Paul Frank~Makoto~Liz Mcgrath
Dennis McPhail~Mr.G~Mitch O'Connell
Lisa Petrucci~The Pizz~Sara Ray
Shag~Von Franco~Keith Weesner
Marc Willey

Hey STARLITE ROOM,
Gene from FALLING COCOS here. I met you in your store earlier this summer. I just found you guys way down the line. Thougt I'd bring you towards the top since you're in walking distance of the "TIKI BEACH FESTIVAL" thats going on at the same time. Or at least you're close. Right?
Sounds like a cool show.

Thanks Gene for the thought. I don't think that anybody on this board gives a hoot though.

Gotta say with the line up that you have I wish I could make it. Also bonus points for the orginal concept of the event, I am sorry I did not catch this sooner, either way I do hope people turn out for it.

It sounds like a great concept. I was at one of your previous events for the Shag liquor cabinet, and I was impressed with all your cool stuff, and also the great band that was playing. I'll try to make it.

WOAH...I missed this thread, so thanks for the "bump"
It sounds like a great time! I'm totally there (after I spend the day at the LB tiki fest)... I love your store too (bought a really schweet rattan fold out couch from you a while back)

I live in Long Beach and I actually know Dave Burke, Dan Collins, and Kirsten Easthope. If it wasn't the same tiime as LB Tiki Fest I would totally be there but I gotta give my love to LB Tiki Fest cause it's an annual thing and I had a great time there last year. Good luck with your show though.

I'm in Long Beach too. I'm going to make an attempt to go to both events. I'm still kicking my butt for missing both the Tiki Fest last year, and the Shag thing at Starlight Room earlier this year.

We may catch some of you at the Tiki Fest early in the day. Hope everyone has a great time, don't forget the sunscreen. If you get a chance to come by and check out the show, I'm sure you won't be disappointed. We are getting some really cool pieces from some great artists. I wish I could keep it all. It's going to be a happening weekend in the LBC. Enjoy!

Gotta tell ya - this was definitely a cool show! The featured artwork has to be seen to be believed - new art painted on vintage pieces sounded a bit 'odd' (even sacreligious!) to me, but the results were just awesome! I especially liked Dave Burke's painted fork & spoon set (Jason - any pix??). As usual, I found plenty of other stuff that I wanted as well, including a perfect condition Sandwich Isles tapa print dinner jacket that I really should've bought... The party itself was a blast as well - ran into MTKahuna, Paranoid123 and VonFranco, caught some great rockabilly courtesy of the Nashvillains, and I haven't seen more ink in one place since Oasis!! (In fact, I'm actually starting to recognize a lot of folks just by their tats!) Gotta give special thanks to Jason & Catherine, not only for putting it all together, but for providing FREE BOOZE! How's that for hospitality?

Keep me posted on the next one!

Z~ Dave has the spoons on his site. They are sweet, I really need to get some of his work, I just need to pay off some others first.

We're working on getting pictures posted on our website. Red Rum was a great sponsor and for anyone interested in a VooDoo Rum keyring, send a self addressed/stamped (50 cents since its not flat) envelope to us and we'll send one out to you. Please email us to make sure we still have them. http://www.starliteroom.com/howtoorder.htm
