Hot Tuna – Jan 4th

Author: , December 27th, 2013

Rock N Roll Hall of Fame alumnus, Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady have been performing together for the flying-monkeypast 50 years. Originating from Jefferson Airplane, the duo formed the iconic blues-roots band Hot Tuna. While in The Jefferson Airplane, putting together the soundtrack of the 60s, the pair remained loyal to the blues, jazz, bluegrass, and folk influences of the small clubs and larger venues they had learned from years before. While in San Francisco and even in hotel rooms on the road, they would play together and worked up a set of songs that they would often play at clubs in the Bay Area and while on the road, often after having played a set with the Airplane.  Early Hot Tuna http://www.glynnhouse.com/calendar/#january_2014 fans discovered at their concerts of the early 1970s was that the band was growing louder and louder. In an era in which volume often overtrumped musicianship, Hot Tuna provided both.  Fan also discovered that Jack and Jorma really loved to play, sometimes 3-6 hour long sets…which only energized the crowds, and in turn energized their performances.

Brighton – Like London, But By the Sea, and Cheaper

By far the chicest, most cosmopolitan and most highly populated seaside resort in the UK, Brighton is famed for its creative spirit, liberal outlook, iconic piers and tooth-cracking candy. Its Victorian architecture, metropolitan style and growing number of resident commuters have all led to it being broadly known as “London by the sea.” With advance train tickets from the capital as low as $10, and a 45-minute journey time, a stopover during your next UK trip – armed with our insider tips – is a must.

Brighton is the epicentre of an ueber-hip, boutique bed and breakfast scene, with dozens of properties to choose from, all located just minutes from the beach. For quirky mock Tudor designs (look out for the bizarre gargoyles) and a handy central location, Hotel du Vin is great for both wine lovers, as its name indicates. It’s owned by a wine merchant, has a wine bar, and its own tasting room. It’s also great for lovey-dovey couples – or even better, wine-loving, lovey-dovey couples.

Alternatively, it’s fairly straight-forward to book an entire house if you’re traveling in a large group. Brighton is, after all, home to some of the country’s most boisterous bachelor and bachelorette parties. Airbnb always has lots of interesting sleeping options in this beautifully boho city.

Exploring Indonesia’s Lombok Island

Lombok Island

from Google Maps

Some of the best holidays can be had by simply venturing off the road most travelled. In Lombok last month, travel buddies Arnd and Dee avoided the built-up tourist traps and headed south.

Starting with Kuta Beach in South Lombok – 25 min from the new international airport via 20 km of paved road – the views leave visitor speechless at the sublime panaoramic beauty that unfolds beach after beach, all along the coast.

We spent 44 hours exploring this alternative destination, driving through traditional villages and farming communities, and scootering to mainly deserted beaches and chatting with the vivacious locals, in the hopes of seeing it before major developments evolve like on the Gilli Islands and West Lombok. The airport has been opened for one year, the roads upgraded, and land snatched up for future building of luxury beachfront resorts.
