Thanks to Tiki Oasis, the Worlds Largest Tiki Event, we got to share the stage with and hang out with The Sonics. They’re definitely an inspiration in their professionalism as well as kicking ass on stage.

We went all out on our masks, with some help from Flam Chen Pyrotechnique Troupe. And we got some play in the OC Weekly.

We had a full crew. Rikki Watson, former drummer of ours & currently with The Dollyrots, sat in on Toms and her husband Dusty Watson, drummer for The Sonics, played percussion. And of course, Bunny Boom Boom came and go go danced.

Tiki O was one of the biggest,. most outrageous parties we’ve seen in a long time. Every single attendant wore period-specific vintage tiki wear or costumed for the Monster theme.  Rum companies sponsored room parties where bands played til dawn and fruity rum drinks flowed for free all night long.

Write up of the main stage music performances on Saturday night.
