Just finished painting these posters last night. All hand cut stencils and hand painted with metallic automotive paints. Looks pretty rad in person.... I'll have several for sale at the show, if anyone is interested.

We’re playing the newly revitalized legendary Tiki Bar in Costa Mesa on March 13th with "Los Mysteriosos" and "The Swingin’ Tikis". Come hang out, have a mai tai. Hear our brand new songs, 'Hulabilly Honey' and 'Volcano'!

Right on! Is Los Mysteriosos the band that has Alex Hernandez playing bass? Nice to see the Tiki Bar open again.

So, you might want to see the poster too, right...? Uh, ahem... right.

And yeah, that's the band that Alex is in. Pretty rad rock en espanol. Think the band from From Dusk Till Dawn.
Now for the poster....

No sir, It is where Zubie's used to be, The Cuckoo's Nest was next door.
Like in The Vandals's song "Urban Struggle"

Actually, the Cuckoo's Nest was where Hank's automotive parts are now. I actually work just down the street on Placentia at Hurley... I've researched The Nest alot lately...Atomic Tiki Punk is totally correct about Zubies.

Even though I'm positive about the locations, the couple who would REALLY know would be Ben or Vicky. They were there.

ah yes, I remember Zubie's too. Saw the then ex coach of the L.A. Rams 'Robinson' in there saddled up and rubberized.
Hope you have fun.

Was even one of the house bands for a while during the Concert Factory years.

So yea I am very sure.

In the Cuckoo's Nest days the Tiki bar was a dive bar named Popeye's (Not the Fried Chicken restaurant of the same name) it had a rowboat on the grass out front, then it became The Road House before becoming The Tiki Bar.

Popeye's came a bit later in the early 1980's
