Saturday October 8th
The Frequency Lab,
10/342 Elizabeth Street,
Surry Hills (2 minutes from central)
8pm- 2am/ $15


Some years since a small group of ‘urban archeologists’ uncovered the 1950s craze for Tiki bars and Exotica music (a pre-World Music amalgam of Latin, Jazz, Pacific, African and Asian styles) - the Tiki phenomenon has grown like an unstoppable jungle weed.

Now the deep and beautiful weirdness of Exotica erupts in Sydney – a city next to the Pacific ocean and home to many indigenous Pacific people. The Lava Lounge blends the lurid, inauthentic dreams of Tiki with the heightened reality of post-modern Pasifikana. Expect a night-time utopia of bamboo, thatch, active volcanoes, huge carvings, moody lighting, and performances from surf-addicted beach bums, bongo-frenzy beatniks and proud Pasifikan performers.

Confused? Don’t be.

Don your brightest tropical shirt, get some friends together and prepare for a visit to an entirely new world – the volcanic and exotic realm of the Lava Lounge.

--------------------------------------------------------

Man I gotta get there! Bad thing is I got to work the next day and this gig is an hour away from me.
