[BENEFIT/MUSIC/DANCE/COMEDY/ACTIVISM] Local resident Dreaming-Bear Kanaan, M.A., is a lot of things: author, troubadour, professor, activist, poet, ordained mystic shaman. Yeah, he’s kinda really hot, too. I prefer to think of him as the kissing prophet. He whispers and flirts his message of peace in seductive language and varying degrees of undress. He says stuff like, “Make love to the moment” and “taste the holiness in the chocolate,” so you know I’m totally down with that. Don’t let me steer you wrong, though—DB’s intentions are pure and true, of course, meant to inspire against the ravages and tragedies of war. DB believes in this generation, in this society, that we’ve really lost a sense of tenderness as a way of life. “And when I say tenderness I mean kindness and compassion, kissing. Imagine for a moment kindness and compassion making out in the corner somewhere,” he’s said on a YouTube video entitled “Chocolate Poetry.” “How sweet that would be, wouldn’t it? And that’s tenderness expressing itself in us.” Mmmhmm… like I said, kissing prophet. Anyway, he’ll be the special guest at this Studio Maui benefit concert honoring refugees and victims of war, which also features The InsPirates, Zen Amen, DJ Plush and more. Suggested donation: $10.
