Agreed, love "Volcano", "The Hidden Village" and "Warm Sands Of Huntington Beach". Good to hang with Bong and meet and talk story with Spike. Always love seein' friends again. F.I. is a lovely buncha coconuts.

Good times last night, hangin' with new(er) peeps, and catching up with old peeps as well. Hula Girls ripped up the place! Spike, Dominic, and the rest of the boys, thanks for coming up, it was a blast! A big congrats to Aquatic Safarinaut for finishing the Kill Devil list, and getting his plaque on the wall! I'm on your heels, buddy! Sobering up at La Penca Azul (formerly La Pinata) was great, too!

Has anyone seen or heard from Dr. Z and Sabu? We kept a watchful eye out for them, but they never arrived. Hope they aren't re-creating the movie "Survive!" on the Grape Vine!

I didn't really take any photos last night, as my camera is on the fritz. But I did manage to use my phone to capture Rugby Matt getting his cherry popped with a Virgin Sacrifice Bowl. Good times last night! Good times...

Do you mean
"Alive"?

Not that it's all that different.

Nope! I meant this one, Survive!, the one that was made in the mid '70's. I forgot about that other version, "Alive", from the early 90's, is it the same plot line?

Sorry, merely the possibility that LapuRocker would be there was enough to keep me away...

No, seriously, Sabu had some concerns about the driving conditions, especially on the Grapevine, so we decided we'd be better 'safe than sorry' (insert Donner Party/Chilean soccer team joke here) and make the trip up there another time. We would have posted sooner, but he's been battling a virus on his computer, and I have been without electricity since Friday evening. (Some fun!)

Glad to here the show was great - lookin' forward to the new tunes & hopefully we'll catch up with our NorCal peeps in March...

Uhhhmmm, that was me, asking about "The Filthy Midget". Yeah I didn't catch his name either. Can I just say Hi here? As for the show, I loved every minute of it. Even did some dancing while sitting. (no not a lap dance) Imagine that.

Filthy Midget Lap Dances.
Now that's a Tiki bar I would go to!

Thanks again to Michael at FI for having The Hula Girls up to play his bar. I am still in awe of the place! Amazing drinks, amazing decor, and amazing people there! It was great to finally meet some of the TCers that I've 'known' for the last 9 years, but had not yet met (especially Jungletrader and Unga Bunga, among others).

And now, our photo journal from the road....

While this thread is about Forbidden Island, our journey began at the Bamboo Hut in rainy SF.



The Bamboo Hut happens to be on one of the sluttiest streets in San Francisco. The only reason I remember the name of the street is because we met this old drunk Chinese man who kept calling himself Broadway Joe. He was awesome and kept insisting on knuckle bumping. It's on Broadway, full of strip clubs and adult stores...



The Bamboo Hut from the back booth...



The legendary Coral Sands tiki mask still overlooks the bar...



Our bassist, Christian, in awe of the GIANT pufferfish lamps...



Here's Bonger, tuning up the steel guitar behind cover model and now merch girl, Miss Dinah DeRosa...



Blag Dhalia, singer of the punk rock band, The Dwarves, came to the show, as well as our buddies, Thee Swank Bastards! They happened to be in SF playing for an art show opening. Here's TSB bassist, Shawn, out front of The Bamboo Hut. I wish I would have snapped some pictures of Blag and Szandora and everyone else that we saw (including Broadway Joe).... L to R: Christian Kessler, Dominic Tucci, Miss Judy Luck, Miss Dinah DeRosa, Spike, and Kevin Bullat.



Group photo... There was a pretty good sized group of tiki fans that came to the show! It was nice meeting Brenda of Brenda's Tiki Hut as well as the group of guys that came to see us.



The Bamboo Hut is a pretty odd place. While their staff was amazing to us, the location invites total weirdness to happen. While we were playing, there was a guy in a top hat (think the singer from 4 Non Blondes) who kept dancing to himself in the mirrors. Fully 'on something' for sure. He proceeded to get into a fight with some big Suicidal Tendencies fan and ended up getting chased out of the bar. We also had yuppies, wasted birthday girls, vice cops, and all kinds of other people seeing the show there...


And now back to Alameda...

Here's our road manager, Mike, helping to, once again, load and unload the van. You can tell how excited he is... Mike also happens to be the manager of the legendary punk band, X.



Bassist, Christian, in the back patio of FI...



Mike, in awe of the amazing Forbidden Island! I tell you, the only other bar that I've been to that even compares to FI is Frankie's in Vegas. Seriously, the place is unreal.



Dominic, loading in the tiniest bass drum ever. What it lacks in size, it makes up in sparkles! Yay!



Tiki Bong, settin' it up... Fountain tiki carved by Danny Gallardo.



Curse of the Tiki cover model, Miss Dinah DeRosa, taking her hula-a-go-go place on the raised platform...



Hey, get to the stage!



Yeah, you too...!



The show!



Forbidden Island was packed with the nor Cal ohana... and some So Cal ohana (John-O!)... but not Sabu or Doctor Z.



Aloha...



Another crowd shot from behind the rhythm section...



John, Aquatic Safarinaut, receives his 'I've drank a thousand glasses of rum award' from Michael...



Thanks again to everyone who came out to the show! Our reception there was just amazing. We really had a ball, thanks again!



Also, we have a small amount of event posters left for sale. If you didn't get one, you can get them here:

Looking forward to seeing more pictures from the night! Keep 'em coming!
Thanks!
