Frankie & the Pool Boys – CD release party!

at Forbidden Island

1304 Lincoln Ave, Alameda, CA 94501

  • 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

 

Frankie and the Pool Boys celebrate the release of their new album “Spin the Bottle” with a dance party at Forbidden Island Tiki Bar in Alameda. The band will play every song from the new 20 track CD, including the new single (yes, vinyl!) “Tan Line Fever.” Special guests joining the band include Dusty Watson (The Sonics, Dick Dale, Agent Orange) who also produced “Spin the Bottle” and, for the first time ever, the all instrumental band will have vocalists singing with them– Tony Bald from country band The Whateverglades and jazz chanteuse Kayla Fowler will recreate their performances from the album. Local legend Dave Seabury (The Rave Ups, The Chuckleberries and so many more) will join on harmonica. The night is also a bon voyage send-off for the band as they embark on a long summer tour taking them through Germany, Italy, the Northeast and SoCal here in the U.S. The Pool Boys are a headliner at the three day Surfer Joe Festival inLivorno Italy.

Frankie and the Pool Boys have a long association with Forbidden Island, this being their 15th show there, and celebrate the tiki bar with “Kill Devil Club”, a new song dedicated to Forbidden Island’s exclusive society (you have to taste every one of the 99+ rums in the house to join!)

Spin the Bottle is being released on Double Crown Records (Bellingham, WA) and the Tan Line Fever single is being released on Asbury Park, NJ’s Hi-Tide Recordings.

Dresses and Controversy in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

Talk to me Harry Winston, tell me all about it!

I Get a Kick out of you

It was a bitter night and as we reached the screening, snow was really starting to fall heavily. However, there nestled in a little courtyard off Brook Street was our outdoor screening of “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes’ at HUSH, complete with fairy lights, candles, hot water bottles, blankets and hot chocolate…….oh, and most important of all popcorn!

We all agreed that if someone had planned this as a first date, we would have been super impressed.

I hadn’t ever watched the film all the way through, I think I must have caught bits and pieces but never the whole film. I’m quite surprised it made it through the censors in parts, it’s quite naughty! But a real feel-good movie. Easy on the eye and funny.

Travilla designed the costumes in the film and he had a real battle with the censors – but all I can say is he certainly…
