Not old school tiki, or Polypop, but a fairly swanky joint,
and I have seen many many surf shows, and Blue Hawiians performances there.
Very sad to hear its goin down the tubes

Dear Lava Loungers,
Would like to thank you for 13 lovely years. We're hoping you'll share one last potent tropical cocktail with us before we close our rather singed door at the end of February.
------------------
For you Blue Hawaiians fans, they will be performing a final show on Feb 24th.
-----------------
Over the next two months we will be having many of our all time favorite bands back, so please come visit us and say "aloha".
You will be amongst the privileged few to hear the very latest on all news regarding the new lounge, and be invited down for an advanced preview. Very exciting indeed!

bunch of non surf dates listed------------------------ then one good one:
1/17 the Austin James Band , & The Creepy Creeps

Mahalo so very much! We loved having you. Just time to reinvent...and return to my original vision for this tiny little space, a sharp lounge!

That sucks, I am moving from Detroit to Hollywood in Feb. I hope I have a chance to see it at least once before it's gone.

Lava Lounge would be Pele's favorite tiki bar.

It might also be mine, if I could better tolerate the music.

Thats why I only go when surf bands or the Blue Hawiians are playing, as for drinks, not to swell either, in past few years if I was going there. Had to make a stop at Tiki Ti before hand to get in the mood. Then just a beer or 2 there while watching the bands.

Hey, maybe they're only going to let bands play in A#?

Wuhhh? I thought my Chrome collection was complete. Please fill me in on the details of this recording. Is it a bootleg?

Hey BTD,
Lava Lounge's MySpace page says the Blue Hawaiians are playing on the 23rd of Feb.

I think I'm gonna try to get down there one of those two nights while I'm in town. Anyone in that area, let me know if you want to get together.

Mahalo,
Jen

Sorry JenTiki,
I was just Fwd ing the e-mail I got from them.
I checked the calender, and the 23rd is a Fri. so thats fine with me.
I don't like going to LA on a weeknight, if I have to work the next day.
Im up for hitting the Tiki Ti before hand, as close to 6 pm as possible.

This is all if I am in town, as there is a slight chance I might go to Portland and Seattle that weekend, to see Satan's Pilgrims, and the Ghastly Ones shows.
But most likely I'll be local.

Jeff(bigtikidude)

OK. Now does anybody know WHY the great Lava Lounge is closing? Will the lovely and talented Michelle be relocating somewhere else? Will she change the LL space into something other than Lava Loungey? Or is the space going to be turned into some kind of Armenian market or trinket shop?
