Saturday (Sept. 3), 10pm, Stella Blues Cafe, Kihei; $7
Maui’s own Entity Awakened is back in black. Where have they been? Vegas, baby. But Lady Luck’s on Mauians side because they band’s taking to the Stella’s stage to tear into time and space with their searing black metal scores. Opening for Entity is Order of the White Rose, a proper punk ensemble who’s reputations precede them. So be sure to limber up for the pit, because the pith of my gist is that these bands’ voracity will have you screaming their praises (and if you’re really lucky, you’ll earn a few bruises to boot–likely from boots). A true headbangers’ ball, this late night show is sure to be a furious feat of heavy-hitting musicianship–and one that metalheads won’t want to miss.
