OK...all you TC peeps that have attended and enjoy Spermy's amazing parties...
here's your chance to give back with a very easy, inexpensive gesture.
Show up for his show at Timewarp Music on Friday, Jan. 8!!!!
It's convenient...on a major street in the heart of LA right off the 405.
It's cheap...only $5!!!
And, most importantly, it's probably one of the few times that all the bands on
the bill have some kind of Tiki connection!
So c'mon, let's show The Sperm Whale our support and turn this mutha into a
full-on TC party!!!!

Thanks for posting this BTD!

It's also Elvis' birthday, so the Ding Dong Devils will be doing an Elvis song--and we promise it will be one from his mid-60's exotica movie heyday, when his band was all ELECTRIC. Not that early crappy Sun Records acoustic period when he and the bass player's instruments weren't even plugged into an amp, and they didn't even have a drummer!

(As well all know from the times since MTV Unplugged, the definition of acoustic is now a singer playing an acoustic guitar with a pickup going into an amp, an electric bass player turned down real low and maybe even playing a hollow body bass--and of course no drummer, just percussion, because if there's a drum set it is considered an electric set, because it's well known by all good sound men that you can't have a drum set on stage without a) miking the "kick" drum and b) turning it up to volume louder than anything else.)

Just funnin' -- looking forward to seeing everyone who can make it Friday, and engaging in some eclecticism with the Sperm Whale and company!

Finally an event on my side of town !! I may have to check this out since I'm scrapping my Mammoth trip (FYI, no TC apres-Ski at Lakanuki this Sat). I haven't seen the Insects since the days of "The Garage" in Silver Lake. Will TC be out in force to support the Hard Riders (and the DDD's)?

I'm assuming there's no bar so I'll have to get fortified at Good Hurt next door (as long as they're not charging a cover).

Too bad the Tiki bar at nearby Mar Vista Bowl is ancient history. I think there's still a Tiki outside so be sure to pay your respects.

You were joking, right? (I hope so!)

Otto's E-mail that he sent out about the gig:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Friday night, Jan. 8
Timewarp Music(one of the coolest vintage musical instrument stores around) 12257 Venice Bl, LA 323-600-5050

An unusual 6 degrees of Tiki separation will occur:

Start at Tiki tOny's show (which ends conveniently at 7)
and then head on over the hill to the Westside to witness 4 bands for $.80 cents each!!! That's right--$.80 each ($5 folks).

8:30PM Karma Dealers (Featuring the incomparable percussion skills of none other than Maxwell of Tiki Oasis faves The Blue Hawaiians)

9:30PM The Hard Riders (Featuring Tiki Central's own The Sperm Whale)

10:30PM Ding Dong Devils (Featuring Brent, formerly of legendary surf/garage band Del Noah and the Mt. Ararat Finks. DDD played 2009's Tiki Oasis Car Show)

11:30PM Insect Surfers ("Planet Earth's Longest Running Surf Band" Featuring one of the earliest Tiki News friends and subscribers Dave Arnson, Dan Valentie of The Boardwalkers, Adrien Anthony of Chum, and Jonpaul Balak of The Tikiyaki Orchestra, The Boardwalkers and Tiki Magazine).

This one is sure to be a night to remember!

UPDATE...

Drove by Mar Vista Bowl earlier this evening (just a block east of Timewarp). Yes, the Tiki is still there. BigBro documents the place in Tiki Modern (pgs 114-115) based on its former Tiki glory. Cheap drinks in the dive bar cocktail lounge. Good Manna.

The Good Hurt will probably have a $5-$10 cover charge. Potential douchebaggery on weekends. Bad Manna. (But it does have a friggin huge sign to locate next door Timewarp.)

Here's some additional JOHN-O Westside wisdom. The Mitsuwa Marketplace (just a block west on Venice) has a Japanese food court. The Santouka Ramen counter there has THE BEST RAMEN IN LOS ANGELES !! The food court used to close by 7:30pm but I'm pretty sure they extended it to 8:30pm.

See you at Timewarp !!

Lucas - I said the exact same thing (out loud) as I read congawa's post. I think he's just messin' with us though. If not, let's take him. I've got your back.
