Review of live show courtesy of Jeremy Hart at Space City Rock:
"And now, for something completely (and I mean completely) different... Like their name suggests, The Grass Skirts play cheery, sunshiney, ukulele-heavy (duh) island-pop, like The Beatles gone Don Ho; some of the tracks are classics, some of which even I know, like Ho's own "Tiny Bubbles," but it's the original (or at least, more obscure) stuff like "Peaceful Pearl Harbor" that really gets me. And no, these guys aren't from Hawaii themselves - the two main guys behind the band are apparently both natives of our sweaty, landlocked city - but hey, I can't fault 'em for wanting to escape from our urban-sprawl environs and imagine themselves someplace greener and more "island" tropical than "heatstroke on pavement" tropical. Beyond that, I've got a blind spot when it comes to steel guitar; can't help but like it, ya'll."
