    This is IT! The final art show of 2008 is being thrown by the hottest art collective in Hawaii right now.

    In addition to the usual mix of Pirates, DJ Boom Bip, Ekundayo, Ozwego, and Jerrell Conner from LA, and Anton Glamb from NYC add their own special flavor to the mix.

    Also, this event is also being promoted as a special Birthday celebration for the Queen of the Bloggies, SuperCW.

    This event starts tomorrow at 7PM at the Loft.  Since this is at the Loft, this event is restricted to those 21+, sorry kids.

    Think Pink! at The Loft 

    October is breast cancer awareness month, so I would be remiss if I didn’t promote at least one breast cancer awareness party.  

    Fortunately, if you haven’t done either, you can hit up the Loft this Sunday night for the Think Pink! party, put on by the fine folks at the enterprise.

    The Loft will open it’s doors for free to everyone rocking pink for the event (before 10PM).

    Not only will the Loft open it’s doors, but it’ll have some dope music going on as well, with DJ Jim Jones, Los Feo Faces, Bari Bari 13, the Jumpoffs, and much more joining the lineup.

    Don’t forget about the drink specials, happy hour until 10PM, and the Sushi Bar.

    Think Pink! goes down this Sunday at the Loft.  If you rock pink before 10PM, you get in free.  All proceeds from this event will benefit Breast Cancer Hawaii.

    Honolulu Art Collective – First Friday at the Loft 

    The HAC is back for another round of First Friday debauchery at the Loft.  This month, they’re featuring works from HAC mainstays Aaron Lee (who, I’m hoping, is going to have more of those dope paper Cryptonauts there), Aaron VB, Runjunko Pugh and Hanasaurus will be on display, along with some new stuff from a ton of artists that you may or may not have heard of, but their work is dope nontheless.

    After the HAC display, Swampa ZZ and DJ Eskae will rock the party until 2am.

    This all goes down this First Friday at the Loft.  This marks the second month that both the bar and sushi bar will be in effect, and from all report, both are considered dope, so do yourself a favor and grab a PBR and a spicy ahi while you’re checking out the art.

    The art showcase is free and open to all ages, starting at 4pm.  At 9pm, the unders gotta get booted and only the 21+ can rock out to the dance party after-party.

    Props to the Loft, the enterprise, and the always fashionable danceonpartyon.com for putting this together.

    Honolulu Art Collective at the Loft – First Friday 

    Can you believe it’s time for First Friday again?  Man, it just seemed like this month just breezed on by, because I could have sworn I did the July 4th First Friday just a little bit ago.

    Anyway, it’s that time again (supposedly) and it’s First Friday, so that means that the Loft will be hosting the Honolulu Art Collective on their monthly display.  And, this month’s lineup looks killer, with MyCryptonauts Aaron Lee, Aaron VB, and Hanasaurus among the many putting pieces up in the spot just above Sunkyu bakery.

    Of course, what Enterprise/Loft event would it be without the Dance Party afterwards?  This month’s “Dance Fever” will feature the sounds of Satellite Grey and DJ ESKAE (who will, no doubt, throw out the ass-shakers for the evening).

    The Honolulu Art Collective exhibit runs from 4pm-9pm and is free to the public and all ages.  At 9pm, they kick out all the minor and it’s $7 for the Dance Fever Party.  This month looks to be really special, as the Loft’s bar and sushi bar is open for business.

    The Loft is located on 115 Hotel Street, right above Sunkyu Bakery.

    For more, check out The Enterprise on MySpace.

    Honolulu Art Collective July 4th Art Show and Dance Party 

    Just because it’s July 4th doesn’t mean it also isn’t First Friday.

    Join the Honolulu Art Collective for a July 4th First Friday art show at the Loft.  Make your way through Sunkyu Bakery and up the stairs to a venue full of pieces ranging from Lomography to plush figures to furniture.  Definitely something for everyone at the Loft.  And, to keep with the July 4th theme, there’s also going to be lemonade and hot dogs floating around, so be sure to snag one.

    The featured artists for this month’s HAC are: Aaron Lee [mycryptonauts], Aaron Van Bokhoven, Adam Funari, Aly Ishikuni, Brandon Large, Calvin Collins, Chris ‘Hayashi’, Carolyn Mirante, Hanasaurus, Jeff Nesbit, Jeff Sanner [14.400], John Radke, Jen Tam, and Andrew Simms.

    After the HAC show, stick around for Dance Fever, a dance party featuring DJ Jami from the Nocturnal Sound Krew and KTUH’s Davey Shindig killing your feet with some ill turntable action.

    The Honolulu Art Collective is a free art show at the Loft (115 Hotel Street), upstairs from Sunkyu Bakery.  The art show runs from 4pm-9pm and is all ages.  Dance Fever starts shortly after that and runs until 2am.  There is a $5 cover charge and it is 21+, so the kids have to go home after the art show.

    For more information on the show, check out The Enterprise MySpace page.
