8/21/2013 Echo Chamber


Tonight we hung out at the Dub Club Tiki Bar for the annual Echo Beach end of summer special. A bit different kind of Echo Chamber -- as we actually played some rock 'n roll: that twangy, instrumental surf rock one expects to find at all great tiki bars. Then, once the martinis were well shaken, we'll gott into some cool old school soul and R&B. We were really cookin' now, and the Tiki Bar lounge was heavy with kali smoke...so we cooled things down with a variety of lounge sounds, world sounds, weird electronica, electro swing, and more swanky jazz.  Among those on our crazy list of artists were: The Ventures, Dick Dale & Del-Tones, The Divine Sham, Freddie Fresh, Buddy Holly/Jacques Renault, The Surf Zombies, Buena Vista Social Club, Omars Attacks/TurntableTerrorist, Propellerheads (ft. Shirley Bassey), Jimpster, Caravan Palace, All India Radio, Afrokeys, Little Tempo, Melbourne Ska Orchestra, Señor Coconut, Ondatropica, Tsuyoshi Kawakami & his Moodmakers, of course Martha & the Muffins, and many more...
