Viva La Musica: Otto's Shrunken Head for Mr. Ho's Orchestrocita

It isn't everyday you can see a band devoted to the exotica lounge music of Esquivel, Martin Denny, and Les Baxter. Brian O'Neill (aka Mr. Ho) leads a vibraphone infused orchestra that keeps true to the original exotica style. The party is also a record release for  Third River Rangoon!
The event is at the legendary Otto's Shrunken Head tiki bar. That means potent tropical cocktails to take the edge off the pre-summer heatwave. Not convinced yet? Mr. Ho ups the ante with the wild sounds of Primativa in Hi-Fi's DJs Jack Fetterman and Gina of the Jungle!  So brush off the leopard print fez and head on over to Otto's.

The skinny from Mr. Ho:

Otto's is tiny; don't wait for the door to get your tickets for our Third River Rangoon CD release party featuring exotica DJs Gina of the Jungle and Jack Fetterman. Not sure what you are in for? Lucid Culture recently posted a great review about the new album: Third River Rangoon.
...Vibraphonist/bandleader Brian O'Neill AKA Mr. Ho's new album Third River Rangoon, by his shapeshifting ensemble Mr. Ho's Orchestrotica may have been inspired by that subgenre, but it?s considerably more magical. It leaves far more to the imagination, a lushly nocturnal collection whose most impressive feat of sorcery is getting a simple lineup of vibraphone, bass flute, bass and percussion to create the sweep of a hundred-piece orchestra...
