The hula was developed to tell stories, conveying all the details with hand motions. Think of the tales awaiting tonight at Hula Rock, as Rebel Night and Dances of Vice bring an island party to SRB Brooklyn. You’ll groove to the surf rock of the Clams, the R&B of Barrence Whitford, and the rock revival of the A-Bones. There’ll be volcanic burlesque from Calamity Chang and Bettina May, Japanese BBQ from Inglorivs Yakitorivs, a vintage hot-rod show, and tiki drink specials to keep you swaying. Grab a grass skirt and your favorite lei and prepare for a night worth retelling.
