The show in Pasadena was delightful. It was held in the main room of the library (Hastings Branch) and Jim played Akaka Falls, Imagine, Little Grass Shack, Kohala No... oh there were many more, but my memory is slow. It was all lovely, of course. The crowd was large, and since it was in a library there were a lot of mesmerized children sitting on the floor. Jim was eventually joined by two lovely hula dancers, and the kids in the library had a great time dancing with them.

All the kids learned to say 'Mahalo!" I loved watching them - even the smallest toddlers enjoyed the music.

We ran into a few serious slack key fans as well.

It was a real treat for me to be able to catch this show, as I live on the east coast. I was in LA for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer and was thrilled when this date appeared on Jim's calender.

Pictures are up on facebook, I think the settings require you to be a friend of mine, or a friend of a friend... so if you're a friend of Kimo, you should be able to access the album.

Does anyone know for a fact if Jim has ever been credited as "Jim 'Kimo' West" during the Fat Jam before 8/13/10 at the Orange County Fair?

That was indeed the first time Al used his Hawaiian name. He said it again the second night.

I'm pretty sure I've read about him doing this at least once before, but I cannot remember when or where. :think:
It wasn't on this tour; it was probably during the SOL tour.

Jim made a tweet recently that allows you to download a track of his for the reasonable price of FREE:
http://twitter.com/westernmost

He's using something called "Tweet for a Track." (as is Weezer apparently) All you have to do is enable the app on Twitter and give it your email address, and it will essentially post a Tweet on your account about it and send you an email containing the link to download track.

I iTuned "Slack Key West" last week. I'm really enjoying it. Though, I am pondering the name... the title is clearly a play on words. But is it Slack Key West, or Slack Key West? Or both?

Well the very premise of "play on words" implies that both are correct.
