Congratulations to tattooist, Creepy Creeps and Creepxotica guitarist Dave Warshaw who’s intricate ballpoint pen on wood art has made the cover of the August 15th issue of his hometown weekly, The San Diego City Beat! Perfect timing too what with Tiki Oais starting on the 16th!
This year’s Tiki Oasis VIP Gift Bag (handed out upon check-in at The Crowne Plaza Hotel and limited to 500) will contain this postcard which has a unique download code for the free 14 song TOP SECRET DIONYSUS RECORDS SAMPLER, featuring tracks from Stereophonic Space Sound Unlimited, The Martini Kings, Orchestra Superstring, Kava Kon, Robert Drasnin, Creepxotica, Skip Heller, Jerry Sun, The Creepy Creeps, The Satelliters, The Creatures of the Golden Dawn, Redondo Beat, and Ruby Dee and The Snakehandlers. About a week after the event ends, we will be sticking these in all Dionysus Mail-Order packages until we run out.
Our fave SOCA surf-garage-rock ‘n’ roll monsters THE CREEPY CREEPS and their alter-ego, the soothing, exotic but still creepy CREEPXOTICA are playing some rad shows in their home turf of San Diego in the next few weeks – catch’ em if you can!
Based out of Avalon Tattoo 2 in San Diego Dave Warshaw is quickly making a name for himself. Here’s an insider’s look at Dave outside of his daytime world of tattooing. Several friends and collegues express their insight about Dave as an artist. But it doesn’t stop there, he’s a member of The Creepy Creeps and quite the collector of sorts…take a look!
Recently, one Dave’s appointments canceled at the last minute. Dave’s pal, Ryan Sinn, formerly of The Distillers and Angels and Airwaves was at the parlor and decided to take the time slot. Dave tattooed his “Four Eyes” creation (currently on display at La Luz de Jesus Gallery) on Ryan – in one shot – a total of four hours! Tattoo art genius!

Our friends Creepxotica serenade or invade the Tiki Oasis 11 (Crowne Plaza Hotel, San Diego) Room Crawl on Saturday August 20, Mariachi / Dia de los Muerto style – as room crawlers exit and board the glass elevators (which also had live music.)
Another Tiki Oasis has come and gone. Having been to all 11 Tiki Oasis weekenders, I can without a doubt say that this year’s event was in many ways better than the previous 10, (and that my friends is not an easy accomplishment) especially the music – not that any Tiki Oasis ever had below par music, they’ve ALL been marvelous but this one was that much more over the top
