    Blue Scholars at UH Campus Center 

    Coming off an amazing performance at Next Door, Blue Scholars have one more special surprise: an all ages show this Monday.

    A quick announcement was given by Geologic at the tail end of the Blue Scholars concert and Jake reiterated the time for everyone.

    What we do know is that the concert is this Monday night, 6pm at the UH Campus Center.  No other details were given, other than that. Perfect Median, NoMasterBacks, AudibleLabRats, Creed Chameleon and DJ Packo will be rockin the spot with Geologic and Sabzi.

    We don’t know how much the show will cost, but after Saturday’s performance, I would gladly pay whatever it takes to see them again. [Ed note – Tickets are $10 at the door]

    So, if you missed out on Saturday’s show, you’re underage and couldn’t see them at Next Door, or you got the itch to see them one more time, check them out Monday night at the UH Campus Center.

    For more, check out genuineHI.com or Blue Scholars.

    NEW! Kicks/HI New Era Caps 

    You can blame me for sleeping on this one.  It’s been a very busy weekend.

    BUT! The Kicks/HI crew has just dropped some new heat on everyone, a new season of the ladies line (which must been seen to be believed) and these two beauties here.

    These are the signature KH caps with two very dope color schemes: grey/white/green and green/white/gold.

    Both of which will look super official on your dome this Summer.

    They are available now at both Kicks/HI locations, Ward and Makaloa.

    For more, Kicks/HI.

    NEW! Fitted Hawaii “Ha’a” Shirt 

    Another Saturday, another Fitted Hawaii shirt/hat drop.

    This one is called “Ha’a” and it pays homage to the ancient art of hula.  The front graphic is of a girl with bent knees, ready to perform the ha’a, with the FITTED crown adorning the back.  Both graphics are done up in purple.

    The hat is a New York Mets custom in all black, with a blue and orange logo and green button and underbill.

    You know the rules: first come, first served; no phone orders until after 12pm.

    MMA Expo This Weekend 

    Now, Hawaii has always been huge for mixed martial arts.  From watching it on TV and the Blaisdell, to supporting it by buying the clothing, and, in some cases, participating in it, Hawaii has played a big part in the growth and popularity of MMA in the country.  In fact, some of the better fighters in the business have made Hawaii a training center for their exploits.

    So, it really comes with much shock that the first MMA expo is happening this weekend.  You would think that this would have occurred sooner, but I guess not.

    Over 200 MMA and fiteness exhibitors will be on hand for the three day event, which also promises appearances from the biggest names in MMA, such as local heroes Egan Inoue and Niko Vitale, fitness models Brandy Leaver and Priscilla Tuft, two time women’s boxing world champion Mia “The Knockout” St. John, Tanoai Reed aka TOA from American Gladiators, and the undisputed UFC light heavyweight champion “The Prodigy” BJ Penn.

    There’s also the PACSUB grappling championships going on at during the expo, so there’s tons of action available this weekend.

    The expo runs this weekend: Friday, 3pm-10pm; Saturday, 9am-9pm; and Sunday 9am-5pm at the Neil Blaisdell Exhibition Hall.

    Tickets are $7 for adults, $5 for military (with valid ID), $3 for kids 7-12 and free for kids 6 and under.  Three day passes are also available for $18.

    For more information, check out Hawaii MMA Expo.

    Hawaii Public Radio “Almost New” Record Sale 

    This year’s Hawaii Public Radio’s “Almost New” Record Sale has a littel twist to it: it’s pairing up with the Friends of the Library of Hawaii to create a week long music and book hunters extravaganza.

    So, if you’re looking for that long lost book or for a record that has a dope snare sample, you don’t have to go too far for both.

    The sale goes down this Saturday, June 28 to next Sunday, July 6th at the McKinley High School Cafeteria.  There will be a special preview day today, June 27th, for those who are members of both organizations.  So, if you’re a member, you got first dibs on all the primo stuff.  You can actually sign up to be a member at the door, so no fears there.

    The sale will be closed for the July 4th weekend (July 3rd and 4th), but will resume on Saturday morning, July 5th.

    For more information on the sale, check out Friends of the Library of Hawaii or Hawaii Public Radio.

    Please note that while the book sale will continue throughout the July 4th weekend, the HPR Record Sale closes shop on July 2nd, so make plans to hit that early and often.

    Then, at 9pm, Soul Clap takes over and the party rages on until 2am.  So, bring your good vibes, your dancing shoes and your best gal pal to enjoy the grooves of NSK all night long.
