No, not hula hula in Vegas, although that would make a fantasticly entertaining documentary.

The POV documentary "American Aloha: Hula Beyond Hawai'i" premieres 8/5 at 11pm on KQED here in SF. Not sure about other PBS stations.

Here's the article from the SF Chronicle. Interesting read, though probably nothing too new for TCers:

"The average Californian wearing his Hawaiian shirt on casual Friday probably has the wrong impression about hula music, which uses words and movements to tell the history of a state that has lost so much since 1893, when Queen Lydia Kamaka'eha Liliuokalani was overthrown and Hawaii became an American territory." -- article.

Heck, they got Don the Beachcomber, Trader Vic and Martin Denny. Seems like an even trade to me.

I take hula class in NYC with co-director Lisette!

The film was featured at a recent Hawaiian film festival here, and it was great.

SCD,

Isn't the premier of 'The OC' on tonight. How can you by-pass such a wonderful new Fox 'reality' program?

I am definitely only joking.
