The Golden Tiki

Posters by Carlos Larios

You’d think that the shrunken heads and talking pirate would be enough, but The Golden Tiki cues up a mix of DJs, bands and performers that would lure audiences even if it were a bland-ass video-poker joint. DJ Rex Dart is often in the house, spinning a fitting mix of the exotic and the danceable, but the guest DJ bookings often pull from the alternative hero all-star team: Clem Burke of Blondie, Daniel Ash of Bauhaus/Love and Rockets and Marky Ramone have all graced the booth. Live bands include weekly appearances by punk (Tuesday) and jazz (Thursday) outfits, as well as the occasional ska, rockabilly or Dean Martin tribute act. 3939 Spring Mountain Rd.,
