Dionysus Records recently gave me some great news about this year’s Tiki Oasis. Not only is the theme going to be “Party on Monster Island,” but there is going to be a TON of live performances from bands like Creepxotica, Jason Lee and the R.I.P.tides and Alika Lyman Group (among many others). Don’t worry if you don’t recognize that last group, as I’ll be covering them very soon. It’s scheduled for August 18-21 in beautiful San Diego, California and you know what that means: act now if you want to get your tickets! For more information about the event, please visit the official Tiki Oasis website. Even if you can’t attend, you should still visit the site just to admire the amazing artwork of Derek Yaniger.
So whether you’re waiting to attend the event or want to distract yourself from the agony of missing it, here’s last year’s Freaky Tiki Surf-ari:
Freaky Tiki Surf-ari: The Return
Freaky Tiki Surf-ari: The Crazed Mugs
Freaky Tiki Surf-ari: The Turbosonics
Freaky Tiki Surf-ari: Space Fezcapade
Freaky Tiki Surf-ari: The Vulcanos
Freaky Tiki Surf-ari: 6’+ Episode 154 is Up!
Let’s not forget the now traditional free exotica download! This year it’s “Goonkacha” by the Martini Kings. It’s a limited time offer, so you had better act fast! Those who miss out on snagging it can console themselves by joining the mailing list for Mr. Ho’s Orchestrotica in order to get 6 free tracks (along with plenty of news about the band).
