    The Lost Cause 2 


    groundUP Pirate Shauno was recently asked to go to Thailand as part of a shirt term missions trip.  In order for him to go, he needs to raise some funds in order to bless the Thai people.

    So, what better way to reach out to the nations than through a little art show.

    The artists will be dope, the vibe will be chill, and I’ll be emceeing the whole thing. So, that’s a guaranteed good time, right?

    Plus, you cna help be a light to others in the world by helping send out Shauno.

    The Lost Cause 2 goes down this Friday night at 7pm at the new Hope Chapel West Oahu in Waikele (where the old Ashley Furniture used to be).

    So, have fun with your friends and help out a brother in need. It’s win-win.

    Haunted Plantation 2008 

    The groundUP Pirates are back with another edition of the Haunted Plantation, Hawaii’s largest outdoor scare event.

    This year, they’ll be spreading the scare for four nights: this weekend (24-26) and Halloween night (31st).  

    From what I’ve been hearing, this is the biggest production to date, so if you were lucky enough to get in to last year’s two night event, this one is looking to eclipse that.

    The Haunted Plantation is at the Hawaii Plantation Village in Waipahu (94-695 Waipahu St., near the old Sugar Mill).  Doors open at 7PM,but get there early to avoid standing in line.  Last year, people were turned away at the door because the event was at capacity, so make sure you’re there early.  I’ve also heard that there will be fast passes available if the line gets too hectic.

    Admission is $7 for everyone 10+.  Kids under 16 must be accompanied by a guardian.  This is one Halloween event not to be missed.

    For more, check out the groundUP Movement online.

    atypicalLIVING covers… groundUP: The Blueprint 

    This edition of atypicalLIVING covers… the latest, and possibly most massive, effort to date of the groundUP Pirates continued takeover of the Chinatown art scene. Subtitled The Blueprint, the Pirates stayed true to their formula of offering Hawaii’s most diverse mix of art, fashion, music and all around good vibes. The centerpiece of the event was the massive, multiple artist mural, featuring the collective talents of the groundUP Pirates, and featuring special guest pieces from angry woebots, 2H, CkaweekS, and Newkon.

    La Pistil provided the fashion, and numerous artists provided the music, including a breathtaking performance by Juan P of Perfect Median, Stutterin Stan (who is well-spoken on the mic), MamaLux, Detego (who I dare say had the performance of the evening), Hope Mayo, and an all out audio assault from DJ Liger, DJ Memoir(s), and DJ Kutz.

    Click below the break for more flicks from the show.

    groundUP Pirates present “Blueprint” 

    Hello There.

    Been a while, huh?  Well, not to fear, as the groundUP Pirates are back with a brand new show this Saturday night.  Titled “Blueprint,” this show is meant to serve as a reminder to the Hawaii scene that the Pirates still maintain the dopest formula for combining all elements of the underground scene in one fun-filled, action-packed night.

    The highlight to all groundUP shows is the live mural painting, this time featuring a veritable who’s who of Hawaii’s art scene, including Pocket Full of Monsters members angry woebots and 2H joining the already impressive groundUP roster and special guest artists.  Also, check out the art and photography on display, the cornucopia of musical acts scheduled to perform, a photoshoot featuring the talents of Honozooloo, fashion display by La Pistil and even food art from Chef Kate Wagner of Starpoint Cafe.

    To say that this show is packed with things to see is an understatement.

    So, in order to see everything, I highly recommend going as soon as the doors open at 7pm.  Events and festivities will be going on until midnight, so swing on by and catch a piece of the action.

    “Blueprint” goes down this Saturday night at the Chinatown Courtyard on Smith St.  Find the Courtyard and look for the stairwell on the left.  The event is happening on the 2nd floor.

    And, no, your eyes aren’t deceiving you, that is the atypicalLIVING logo on the bottom of the flyer.

    For more info on the event, check out the groundUP Movement.

    The Love Movement featuring the work of Shaun Castro 

    This Saturday marks the first ever solo art show for Shaun Castro. The lightsleeper/groundUP pirate/Prolifik designer will be bringing his unique blend of classical and urban styles to the walls of Prototype this Saturday night. The show will also be the launch of a special edition wallet Shaun did with Poketo. Look for the wallet at the show and bring some cash, as this wallet will go quickly.

    Shaun’s art showcases his combined experiences of being a conflicted youth, a redeemed by faith Christian, and an artist that is revered by many around the world. Be there to see the combination of all three in one spot.

    The Love Movement starts 5pm this Saturday night at Prototype and will continue until May 26th. Consider this a primer to the Next Movement later on in the evening.

    Shaun has been down with atypicalLIVING since day zero, so I’m personally stoked to see Shaun getting some shine on a solo level.
