2 CD release parties
are on tap tomorrow

TOMORROW night brings a pair of CD release parties: B.E.T. celebrates at Don Ho's Island Grill, while the Kapili Band takes over the Sunset Bar at Dave and Buster's. Both parties get started at 9 p.m.

One of the highlights of the "B.E.T. Volume Three" party will be the screening of B.E.T.'s first video off their latest album. "Trust in Me" made its debut earlier this week on Davey D's "Overdrive Live," and folks at Don Ho's will get to watch it for themselves on a 10-foot screen. Aziel, Ten Feet, the Typical Hawaiians, Sudden Rush and DJ Galmiche are also scheduled to be there, and KCCN FM-100's Shannon Scott will share emcee duties with the Chief Ragga. Call 528-0807 ...

Over at the Sunset Bar, the Kapili Band will celebrate the release of "Kapili 2: A Peaceful Easy Feeling." Ilona Irvine, Kahiau and Toa will also be on hand to help keep things festive. There's no charge to check out this party at Dave and Buster's; call 375-2974 for more info ...

IF HAWAIIAN MUSIC isn't your cup of tea, head down to Cafe Sistina tomorrow for a taste of DJ Vector Burn. The drum and bass deejay and producer is in town for "Audiolab," a monthly that's been taking place at Cafe Sistina over on South King Street. Once again, doors open at 9 p.m., and there's an $8 cover to get into this 21-and-over party ...

ARE YOU SALTY about the Get Up Kids canceling their concert Saturday night at Pipeline Cafe (see item at left)? Once you get a refund, don't spend that money just yet -- tickets go on sale March 15 for the return of Ozomatli. These guys tore it up at the now-defunct World Cafe last year, so expect a good crowd when they perform this time around. Check out www.goldenvoice. com for all the details ...

LAST MONTH in this space, I told you about the Sisters in Sound's new venture, "Escape," at Indigo. Saturday marks the next installment of this monthly party, and it will be a must-attend event for fans of SIS founding member DJ Zita. After almost two years here, Zita plans to take her talents back to the mainland sometime around the beginning of summer.

But don't think her departure means the end of Sisters in Sound. "I think it's going to continue," she said earlier this week. "I just wanted to initiate it and get more women to come out. ... I've reached a lot of the goals that I've set out to reach."

DJ Toki will also be on hand to represent SIS at Indigo during "Escape." There's no cover charge to get in; call 521-2900.
