When you hold a VIP pass, people treat you with the esteem typically reserved for very irate politicians and ventriloquist inoculation professionals. Live very importantly with today's Groupon: for $10, you get one VIP admission to A Taste of Rock at The Shark Club in Costa Mesa on Saturday, May 21 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., sponsored by KOCI Radio (a $30 value).
A local nonprofit radio station, KOCI raises awareness for other community issues and nonprofits with "A Taste of Rock," an afternoon of free giveaways, food, wine, and live music. Navigate the Taste's assembly of sponsors and vendors such as Kika Paprika, a socially responsible fashion company dedicated to reducing environmental footprints, and Hush Hush Bang Bang Salon, with stylists on hand to anoint scalp-fuzz with feather extensions for especially emphatic demands to hear "Freebird." Pleasure palates with food and drink, including bacchanalia-fueling wine tastings, before recklessly abandoning eardrums to performances by ZepShow, a Led Zeppelin tribute band, The Who Revue, a The Who tribute band, and Todash, a dynamic funk and hard-rock ensemble. VIP admission includes five raffle tickets and a meet and greet session with the bands for inquiries into the music and recommendations of hair salons that perform decent Robert Plant styling services.
