Join us Friday night for the Tiki Kon: Mysteries of the Deep kickoff party, with legendary surf band SATAN'S PILGRIMS, presented by Deadhead Rum. Including performances by LUSHY from Seattle, burlesque by Meghan Mayhem and Tana the Tattooed Lady, plus DJ Drew Groove. Hotel shuttle $10 (included with weekend pass).

Twisting their name from the 60s B-movie Satan's Sadists, Satan's Pilgrims is one of the most influential surf instrumental bands in the nation. While much of their sound has a definite Southern California flair, their Pacific Northwest rock 'n' roll ancestry sets them apart. The Pilgrims have created their own sub-genre of surf music with a patented haunted sound, which fans have dubbed "Pilgrim Rock." Ask any West Coast surf band to name their influences, and Satan's Pilgrims will inevitably be in the list.

From Seattle, Lushy brings a refreshing groove and intriguing style that blends original samples and Bossa beats with elements of vintage Latin jazz, exotica, surf, new wave and sixties pop. Their distinctive, inter-continental sound is lounge-y and danceable and goes down nice and easy, like a well-mixed cocktail in swanky bar.

Deadhead Rum is an exceptional, six-year cask aged rum imported from Veracruz by Iconic Brands. It debuted in Oregon last year during Tiki Kon: Adventure Island and was featured on the Tiki Kon home bar tour with much acclaim. This year Deadhead returns not only to the home bar tour, but also as the presenter of the Friday night kickoff party.
