After the cancellation of their first Pinktober Event, Hard Rock got Bad Brains coming October 28th at 9:30 pm. Straight to Hawaii after their appearance at the Smokeout Festival in San Bernadino, California. Well its no festival over here, but the Hard Rock is doing a cool thing trying to raise money for the Pacific Cancer Foundation. The Maui band the Throwdowns open for them! I am not a huge Bad Brains fan, but I love punk rock and there is something so cool about watching these dudes that look like they are gonna put out some straight up reggae and then its punk rock time. A live show is a live show here on the rock, its not reggae, and October is shaping up to be a real Rocktober after all. By the way I am not a reggae hater, just loving some musical diversity.
