Friday (Aug. 28) 7pm – close, Eha’s Pool Bar, Wailuku
Saturday (Aug. 29) 7pm – 12am, Kihei Charter School Auditorium, Kihei
Lately, all I’ve been hearing is that Maui has no rock scene. This weekend’s lineup aims to kick that idea to the curb with an army’s worth of Dr. Martins. Starting with tonight, I’ll slip in a reminder for The A.K.A.s and Maui’s Order of the White Rose at the Iao Theater. For the 21 and over crowd who like to rock it Central, head to Eha’s Pool Bar on Friday night for their “Eha’s Oahu Showcase,” featuring Phoenix Rose (whose bassist has the coolest name, Jack Jackman), Above Reproach, Stillborn Skies, Affront the Weak, and Before Fire. On the South Side on Saturday, thanks largely to Maui Wave Studio’s Pete Lago, you can get “Live and Loud,” at an all ages show at the Kihei Charter School Auditorium. Also sponsored by Ace’s Radio Rehab, 97.3 K-Rock is also doing a live simulcast of the show. Admission is free, and in addition to the aforementioned bands hitting Eha’s, you can get wild to Gulch of Rot, Before Fire, and Everybody Hates Us.
