The Surfside IV Wanna Lei You This Weekend

Did you happen to miss out on last weekend's uproarious Tiki Throwdown at Tempe's Yucca Tap Room? Still hoping to get lei'd? Then local band The Surfside IV have a deal for you.

They're gonna be involved with this Sunday's Surf Rock Tiki Luau Party III at the Rhythm Room, which is shaping up to be a volocano-sized shindig of island-style fun. Live music will be provided by the Surfsiders, as well as Thee Swank Bastards, Ukulele Ray and the Kokonutz, Thee Jaguar Sharks, and the DJ pair of T-Ray and Zippy.

Tiki carving will also take place, as well as a barbecue, raffles will be conducted, door prizes will be handed out, and plenty of lowbrow art and souped-up hot rods will be on display. Best of all, the event benefits Nate Anderson's Ear Candy Charity.

It's guaranteed to be more fun than the time that the entire Brady Bunch clan went to Hawaii and nearly got killed by that evil tiki talisman. Doors open at 3 p.m. and admission is $10. Click here for more details.
