DANGIT! I feel fortunate to have gotten an APE fix just a few weeks ago, but I'm BUMMED I have to miss this show in my own backyard! Any plans to have more shows down here, guys?

YAY! More APE! More APE! I can't wait. We're bringing a tiki friend of mine from college. She and I used to do the Kon-Tiki in Tucson, AZ every Thursday for like 5 years! She lives in Seatle now and I can't wait to take her to the Purple Orchid to see the show... Counting down until Saturday. See you all there.

Great to hear!

True an ape or two have flown the coop for this gig, but the cozy P.O. will be the perfect setting to see Frank's steeling action up close and to have a friend or two come join us for some familiar tunes

You know how much I love you guys? I've cancelled my plans to go out of town this weekend. The thought of missing Tiki Taix & APE was just too much to bear. My APE pimpin' bamboo handbag & I will be there.

Thanks to all who made this such a great night!

to name just a few Dave & Rebecca, Floratina and VintageGirl- the night's Ape Swag peddlers, Dr. Z & GiantTikiRobot- Ape's conga crew for some great banging, and of course the Bar Tenders!

Thanks again!

MUST! HAVE! MORE! APE!

The show Saturday night was simply sublime. I can always count on Al & the boys to provide me with sufficient jungle rhythms to dance just like the fool I am. Plus, they played Sleepwalk, which made me all swoony. Sleepwalk is my kryptonite. Thank you, Al, Frank, Lane & Mitch!

Here are some pictures:


Lane with some mementos from their WB gig


WeirdUncleTiki (fresh off his yacht), Vintage Girl & TraderPup


I found this incredibly bizarre sweater on eBay months ago. Could there be a more perfect getup for an APE gig? Well, short of an actual gorilla costume...


The four boys could barely fit on the Purple Orchid's tiny stage.


Vintage Girl leads Al & me through a hula



These prototype APE mugs by Tiki Farm had the whole joint BUZZING. Everyone wanted to know how to get one, so I suspect they're going to sell out quickly when the are available (sometime later this summer maybe?).


Suicide Sam, Tiki Mofo, Trader Pup, Polynesian Pop, Z-girl, Utopian Dreem


Trader Pup, Pi Phi Rho, 2QueerTikis (2QueerTikis & I have discovered that we live about a 1/2 block away from each other!)


Frank & Lane apparently have different approaches to this song


Mitch tries to keep hold of his tiny slip of stage space


Al, thumping


King Kukulele joined APE to sing a song, he sounds awfully nice when he's not busy being a goofball!


Crazy Al carved this tiki at the WB gig


Floratina & Frank share a laugh


Mitch becomes contemplative after APE finishes their show


After APE finished, there was a uke jam with Frank Novicki, WeirdUncleTiki & King Kukulele (who was strangely without his royal regalia)


WeirdUncleTiki & King Kukulele on ukes, GiantRobotTiki on congas, Crazy Al on the crazy coconuts


POP YLOP!


Vintage Girl, Floratina & Tiki Vixen share a laugh (There's always lots of laughing with Floratina!)


It's the FAMOUS Mr. Smiley! But why isn't he smiling?? It must be because he cannot have an APE mug yet.


All the excitement left the King plum tuckered.

The rest of my pictures can be viewed here:

Thanks again for a great show, you HAVE to come do it again sooner rather than later!

Humuhumu,
What would we ever do without you.
Thanks once again for the pics!
The ape shirt was perfect for that event.

Humu - thanks for posting those pics! It seems as though you have become the official photographer for TC events!
I had a great time at the show, both listening to APE and meeting fellow TCer's. I am rather shy by nature, but after a few...I actually got up the nerve to introduce myself to some TCer's I recognized. I spoke with several very nice TCer's, and Dr. Z was kind enough to point out the rest - that was quite a showing of TCer's! I look forward to the next event!
