Sounds like fun!
Manuel and I will be there, but we can't stay out too late on account of my horrible schedule!

KXLU peeps, TC peeps, Surf music peeps.

I'd play connect the dots but it's late, I'm drunk, and I have to work tomorrow.

Anyway I'd thought I'd post these while the event is still fresh...











Happy Birthday Denny Martin !! (Did I say I was drunk? )

Shoot...I missed this. I'm still a newbie and have been hoping for something REALLY close to home. I work in El Segundo and I missed this wonderful opportunity!
That said, how did it go? Was there a good showing of Tikiphiles from TC? Got pix?
I will have to pay much more attention. I spent the last two weeks in Colorado and when I get back I miss the closest-to-home thing happening. I am sorely dissappointteedddd.

Thanks for the heads-up on this one Tobunga and thanks for the photos John-O!
It was a great night out with a wonderful bunch of people and some excellent music.

The Molotov Cocktail Hour is a true gem in LA radio; it was nice to be able to get out and show some support for the superb work by Cyrano & Senor Amor.

Cheers everyone!

We had 8 TCers which included 1 Ding Dong Devil, 1 Tikiyaki (actually THE Tikiyaki), and a Crazy Al. Plus 2 Insect Surfers. Pix above but everyone is mixed up with the KXLU crew.

Which is the way it should be.

A nice show of shirts, guys! Was too tired to trek down, but was there in spirit.

What a night! I know it must have been a good night, because this morning I realized I forgot to close my bar tab, and left my credit card at the PO (will take care of that, Dave and Rebecca)!

Great crowd, great turnout, and also--from my observation--a bit of a throwback to one of the most memorable events I ever attended: Exoticon in 1995 at the Park Plaza Hotel (Elks Lodge) in LA, with Senor Amor and Cyrano being joined by Strike from Luxuria, one of the organizers of Exoticon along with Otto, and the Millionaire from Combustible Edison was also in the house for a while. I definitely knew I was at an epicenter of exotica music when eavesdropping on an off-air conversation between Jim Bacchi and Cyrano about the intricate details of Gene Rains LPs.

Hopefully the Molotov crew can do more of these radio remotes. Even better would be a TV show, as there were some incredible visuals--including some impressive rug cutting by Crazy Al and KXLU's Yolanda which would have been worthy of the ballroom radio remotes in the days of the big bands!

thanks for pics and reviews.

Unfortunately, due to some college or radio regulations they aren't allowed to podcast on KXLU, and I forgot to set my home internet recorder as well--hopefully someone did because it was a great show! I left about 11:15 and listened to their traditional hour grand finale of many different versions of Quiet Village, non -stop (disco and otherwise).
