There's a tiki event being hosted today in Sydney, Australia (or is it yesterday—I don't know my international date lines very well).
Now the deep and beautiful weirdness of Exotica erupts in Sydney – a city next to the Pacific ocean and home to many indigenous Pacific people. The Lava Lounge blends the lurid, inauthentic dreams of Tiki with the heightened reality of post-modern Pasifikana. Expect a night-time utopia of bamboo, thatch, active volcanoes, huge carvings, moody lighting, and performances from surf-addicted beach bums, bongo-frenzy beatniks and proud Pasifikan performers.
Saturday October 8th, at The Frequency Lab. 10/342 Elizabeth Street, Surry Hills (2 minutes from central) - 8pm- 2am/ $15
