The Abigails, Cool Ghouls & Froth Jan. 25th

All you garage fans will finally have something to Dwyer-yip about in the New Year. The Crepe Place is playing host to not one, not two, but three killer bands. Orange County western lo-fi outfit The Abigails top the bill as they gear up for the release of their album “Tundra” on Burger Records. San Francisco’s Cool Ghouls are quite familiar with the stage at Santa Cruz’s alternative pancake restaurant. Their debut album was the third most-played new release in 2013 at KZSC; they are sure to feature some tracks off their upcoming Sonny (Sonny and the Sunsets) produced second LP. Los Angeles’ Froth rounds out the bill with burning, organ-grinding psychedelic jams. So throw on your denim jacket, polish up the buttons and join the throngs at The Crepe Place, Soquel Avenue in Santa Cruz on Saturday, January 25th. The noise starts at 9 pm.

Hula & A Movie Jan.19th

Santa Cruz’s own Ladies of Mehana hula halau are hosting a Santa Cruz movie premiere by writer/director Keo Woolford, shot on location in Hawai’i.  “The Haumana” (The Student) is an indie charmer, the story of Jonny Kealoha, who is working a Waikiki Polynesian revue when he is appointed successor to a high school boys’ hula class. It’s a movie by Hawaiians, about Hawai’i for Hawai’i…and for all of us to see. (Spoiler Alert: watch for the famous and much beloved singer Marlene Sai acting in this movie!).  There will be a question & answer session with the film’s director after the feature. “The Haumana” premieres Sunday, January 19th at The Rio Theatre in Santa Cruz.  The box office opens at 3:3o; hula and other pre-show entertainment begins at 4:30 pm; the film rolls at 5.
