Jan 27, 2001. Encinitas.
The Koalas celebrate their first anniversary with a return gig to where it all started -- A1’s Australia Day Party. Armed with more equipment, more songs, and hats that looked half Australian and half Duran Duran, the Koalas turned "1" in style. New songs included Walk Like An Egyptian and Radar Love. Ted introduced his new drum kit, Phil played with a Marshall amp, and people choked to the fog machine.
March 17, 2001. Rancho Penasquitos.
April 21, 2001. La Jolla.
May 26, 2001. Villa Shores, Blythe, CA.
July 20, 2001. SDSU area, El Cajon Blvd, San Diego.
Our first bar gig! A landmark event. It had been a major goal of ours to be good enough to play at a real bar. After tightening up the act we went public and partly-professional on El Cajon Boulevard. One small step for man, one giant leap for a Koala.
August 25, 2001. Escondido, CA.
October 13, 2001. Escondido, CA.
October 25, 2001. Temecula, CA.
Gathered for a varsity cheer, a large crowd of high-schoolers gave a rapturous response to the cheerleaders and footballers but were stunned into silence by the aged Koalas. We played four songs of our set before being asked to finish. Still, we got to see the cheerleaders.
October 27, 2001. La Jolla, CA.
A party so big, so wild, and so scary that it had to have its own page. Click here.
November 17, 2001. Escondido, CA.
Our third gig at the Comstock. Andy introduced the new Koalas "Home Depot" light show and we played all our sets without long pauses between songs. Now we’re ready for our third year.
