It’s Electric! (Boogie Woogie Woogie)
(Friday) July 8, 9pm-3am, The Underground, Lahaina; $15 general/$20 VIP
The UNITY Summer Electronic Music Massive is slated to be 2011’s biggest electronic music hui, featuring the isle’s most notable names and best on-isle sound systems. So if you’ve gotta feel it pumpin’ like a matic, boogie woogie your way down to the West side’s The Underground—the isle’s only, drug-and alcohol-free all-ages party place. If there’s house music anywhere in the shadow of the House of the Sun, DJ Del Sol (LoveHouse) and DJ CIA (Suck My Beat) are certainly its instigators. Professors of the perfect playlist, their residencies include Wednesday nights at Ambrosia. Plus, Fxxx Rogers (Fuzz Box) will be on hand to spoon feed deliciousness into your “earholes,” as will Honolulu’s famed DJ Rayne (IOS Productions). And though Dublin Crew is new blood ‘round these parts, they’ve come out swinging by getting jungle parties a-jigglin’. If that’s not enough, Team Awesome heads the decorating committee with Fuzz Box manning visuals plus live art by Taryn Alessandro. And to keep you hoppin’ the whole night through, the Smart Bar will feature the innovative, antioxidant rich—and locally made—magic elixir, Kona Red. Some say it’s mystic, so don’t bother resisting it. Just go.
