Hula girls put on a great show .For those of you who did not hang til the end, you
missed out on a incredible performance by Los Straightjackets.I had never seen them
play before and these guys blew me away!.I found out they have been playing for 17
years .

If you guys aren't already 'fans' of the Hula Girls on Facebook, join up for updates from the recording studio! http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/The-Hula-Girls/81807891157?ref=ts
So far, the recordings are sounding amazing!

This was a great show, the Hula Girls were amazing, they keep getting better every time I see them. Los Straitjackets were awesome as well, I've been a long time fan of theirs but this was the first time I had seen them. I can't imagine playing on that stage for an hour wearing a suit and a wrestling mask, it was hot as hell in that place! (Spike, I saw you sweating quite a bit up there!) Big Sandy and his boys were consistent as always...Dannelle and I were trying to count how many times we have seen him play, and we couldn't do it. Truly the nicest and most knowledgeable guy in rockabilly though. Nice to see the Galaxy back to its original glory...it looks almost exactly the same after the remodel. Great times, thanks guys!

Yeah, I was sweating like a bastard up there I can't imagine playing in a suit and a mask either!! Actually, I went to Brazil for Hurley, playing Ramones songs, and I had to wear a leather jacket and a wig for an hour of super fast Ramones guitar playing.... that was almost unbearable. And we did a show that was outside, during the daytime, in Florida for that band too. I seriously almost passed out on stage during that show. But every night in a wrestling mask and a suit?? Crazy!. They are sooo good though.

Thanks for the comments about getting better and better, Jason. I think that The Hula Girls are at our best on big stages for big crowds. We really rise to that challenge. And Gary, the owner of The Galaxy loved us too, so I think we'll be doing more at the Galaxy, in the future. In fact, we were throwing around ideas about a surf/ tiki/ exotica/ car show thing there. It would be really cool to have a band like Tikiyaki during the dinner crowd and ramp up the rock n' roll as the night goes on... Maybe that'll happen down the line...

Thank YOU again for a fun evening on Friday!!!

The Hula Girls were great - it was a NICE touch to see actual "Hula Girls" on stage.

The Galaxy is always a great venue to see a show, hopefully you guys will play there again.

Until next time.

Spike,

you absolutely have improved a lot of the last year or so.

GREAT SHOW !! My favorite songs were "Waikiki Moon" and "Volcano". If Surf Music can be Tiki music then the Hula Girls prove that Rockabilly (or Hula-billy) can be too. This was 110% Tiki Music !!

Also the sexy hula dancers were a nice touch. It was like an alternate reality mid-century Polynesian floor show.

Thanks for the T-shirt, Spike. I'll wear it with Tiki pride.

Huh, there were more bands after the Hula Girls ?? I thought they were the headlining band.

Soon enough I guess.

Tsk, tsk tsk ???

According to my show diary, I first saw Los Straitjackets on Jan 16th, 1996 at the (now defunct) Alligator Lounge in Santa Monica. Dude, where were you 14 years ago ?? Hanging outside the Whiskey waiting to see some "hair" band ?

Plus you're supposed to give people crap for not showing support for the opening acts, not the main event.

Putting this back on track, Lucas I'm looking forward to the CD. Did you show up for that gig ??

stopped going to shows on the strip in the early 90s.

I saw LSJ's in 97 or so, so you go me beat there.
But because you saw them then, makes it ok to miss them now?
how does that work?
hmmmmm
