Tiki Oasis 14: "Beat-Tiki" weekender offers a unique pairing of the Beatnik and Tiki ethos. Like the Beat Generation of legend and lore, today's Tiki aficionados are drawn to primitivism and thirst to reconnect with the primal past, celebrating it in a modern context. Spend a carefree weekend in an urban oasis amidst fellow barefoot bohemians, reveling in the kind of art, music, literature and mixology that is sure to flip your lid!
Tiki Oasis' "Beat-Tiki" weekender will quell your wanderlust, quench your thirst, and leave you with life-fulfilling memories.
In the spirit of Beat literati, The Beat Musem (San Francisco) will host a City Lights-sponsored pop-up bookstore as well as an expanded booksigning event. There will be several scheduled and spontaneous poetry readings by well-known and unknown authors and poets. And we have increased the number of educational symposiums: Learn about the proto-hippie, flute-playing poet, composer, naturalist, and urban explorerEden Ahbez with researcher/author Brian Chidester; The heart of the Venice Beach Beatnik scene is examined by author Domenic Priore; Beat era artist, original Disney Imagineer, and creator of the Tiki Room Tikis, Rolly Crump, shares his thoughts; and many more.
Stay tuned for performer list, event specific emails, a digital music sampler of the live entertainment, images and interview opportunities.
