    (flick courtesy HNLnow.com)

    This Friday night marks the second annual “Taste of the Arts” Festival.  This event features Chef demonstrations, wine tasting from Chinatown’s dopest restaurants and music on three stages.

    The chefs on display will include Dave Cruz of Indigo, Kamal Jemmari of Soul de Cuba, David Hoffman of Restaurant EPIC, and Scott Nelson of Brasserie Du Vin.

    Wine tasting will be conducted by sommeliers Eric Chandler and Tiana Kahauwila, Du Vin.

    Food will be provided by Bale, Cafe Joy, Brasserie Du Vin, EPIC, Indigo, Kevin’s Two Boots, Little Village, Soul de Cuba, and Tea at 1024.  All restaurants lie withing two blocks of the venue and each restaurant’s culinary artist will feature fare that is unique to their restaurant.

    Don’t forget about the music… three stages around the venue will feature hot jazz, silky smooth blues and the main stage, featuring the sounds of Inter Session, The Spacifics (featuring EMIRC) and Go Jimmy Go!

    Nuuanu Avenue will be closed form Chaplain Street (in front of Mark’s Garage) to King Street and Hotel will be closed from Bethel to Smith.  This provides plenty of crusing area for all the Friday night owls in Chinatown.

    This all goes down this Friday night in Chinatown.  The festivities start around 6pm-ish to 10pm.

    NEW! EMIRC “Return To The Basics” single on iTunes 

    Tassho Pearce (aka EMIRC) is Hawaii’s hip-hop mogul.  The head of Flip The Bird is also one of Hawaii’s illest emcees, and he flexes those emcee skills on his latest track “Return To The Basics.”  The FTB CEO got Dilated all over this track, with Evidence lacing the beat and DJ Babu with the cuts.  EMIRC dropped a special version of this at The (last) Next Movement and it brought the beat hard.  I have no doubt that the track will bump equally as hard coming out of your iPod.

    Look for this track both on iTunes and BeatSource.  This is the first salvo from his upcoming album The Opening Act, coming soon.

    atypicalLIVING Covers… The (last) Next Movement 

    This edition of atypicalLIVING Covers… takes a look at the final Next Movement at Next Door.

    For the past year, Jake “The Snake” Miyasato has been turning the downtown filmhouse into the mecca for Chinatown hipsters to get their monthly fix of fashion, music, and art.  This event, which sprang forth from Jake’s earlier efforts on the UH-Manoa campus, quickly became the destination for Hawaii’s social elite to see and be seen.  And, we’re sad to see it go.  But, it didn’t go down with a whimper.

    The genuineHI crew cranked back and unleashed the magic one last time on the hipsters and socialites alike.  The room began to shake with the sounds of DJ Mr. Nick and DJ Fame.  Then the roof got blown off by the sonic fury of the combined forces of the Perfect Median and DJ Bumblebee.  Then the walls got blown off by the unmistakable flow of EMIRC, with DJ Jimmy Taco kicking down the door.  Finally, the combined efforts of The Street Society and a collective of UH and HCC students brought the house down.

    This was definitely an epic event and one that will be missed.  Congrats and GOOD LUCK to Jake as he embarks on his career with Boeing.  Hopefully, he can link up with atypicalLIVING’s Northwest crew and continue to make the Next Movement happen up there.  I know it was said earlier in the event post, but we feel like we’re watching our brother move up and out, since both atypicalLIVING and genuineHI both got started up around the same time.  We’ll miss the homie Jake, but know that… he’ll be back.

    Check out all the flicks from the Next Movement (all 230 of them), right here on the atypicalFLICKR.

    The (last) Next Movement 

    This is it.  Jake the Snake is retiring at the top of his game.

    The Final Edition of the Next movement goes down this Saturday night.  For the past couple of years, Jake has always brought in an eclectic mix of music, art and fashion into the Chinatown nightlife scene.  And the Next Movement has gotten acclaim from media, both print and blog.

    And now, it’s coming to an end.  But, before sounding the death knell, Jake the Snake will send out one final salvo as a thank you to everyone that has stepped into the Next Movement.  And what a final strike it will be.

    The musical guests will span the present and future of Hawaii hip-hop.  Headlining the event is the present mogul of Hawaii hip-hop, Tassho Pearce aka EMIRC.  Besides being one of the dopest MCs in the state, Tassho is also the creative force behind the Flip The Bird clothing line and has done collaborations with Evidence from Dilated Peoples, DJ Q-Bert, and Run Athletics for the highly publicized FTB x RA collaboration shoe.

    Opening for EMIRC is the Future of Hawaii hip-hop, the Perfect Median.  Juan P and Grip H will be bringing their melodic soul samples, razor sharp wit, showmanship and style to an eagerly anticipating audience.  They’ll be accompanied by the infamous DJ Bumblebee.  They already killed the Next Movement once before, and have been on a tear since, releasing leaked track after leaked track, getting Hawaii prepped for the future.  And the future is looking bright.

    Speaking of the future, the fashion portion of the Next Movement will feature the future: students from the HCC Fashion Department and UH Manoa’s APDM Department will be displaying their work on the Next Movement catwalk.  Also on display will be the fashion of The Street Society.

    The art for this month will be handled by Hawaii nightlife’s most visible photographer, Honozooloo.  What does he have in store for the Next Movement?  Swing by the show and find out.

    As always, DJ Mr. Nick and DJ Fame will be holding it down.

    The Final Next Movement takes flight this Saturday night at Next Door.  Doors open at 9pm. $5 presale tickets are available via genuineHI.com, otherwise, it’s $10 at the door.

    On a personal note, the atypicalLIVING crew wishes Jake the best of luck on his new endeavors in Seattle.  Congrats on the new job and we got peoples in Seattle to link you up with, so you won’t be without a scene for too long.  It’s sad to see people leave Hawaii, but it’s awesome to see them move up in the world.  Jake/genuineHI started about the same time as we did here at atypicalLIVING, so it feels like we’re losing a sibling in a sense.  But, we know that the positive lifestyle that Jake promoted will continue to live on in the scene thanks to the efforts of genuineHI.

    It’s not a eulogy, but a celebration.  So, swing by Next Door this Saturday nights and live the positive lifestyle one last time with the genuineHI crew.  atypicalLIVING will definitely be in the building for this one, so you better be there as well.

    Pro Bowl festivities – Three6Mafia 

    If you’re still going through withdrawal over the Super Bowl, don’t fret, because there is still one more game this season.  The Pro Bowl, the annual celebration of the best in the NFL, is going down this Sunday.  The game usually comes second to all the events that are going down this week throughout the island.  The biggest of these events, especially when it comes to hype, is the highly anticipated Three6Mafia concert at the O Lounge.

    Now, Three6Mafia is one of those guilty pleasure type of deals, but, there’s so much more going on.  EMIRC and Krystyles will also be performing, as well as Jimmy Taco on the ones and twos.  Also, this is the official Pro Bowl party for the Dallas Cowboys, as Ken Hamlin, Marion Barber, Terrence Newman and more are expected to show up.  Also expected to show up is UFC light heavyweight champ Quinton “Rampage” Jackson.
