Architechs craft
weekly DJ blast

IN HONOR of their third anniversary together and the start of Spring Break, local party/DJ crew the Architechs kicked off a new weekly on Friday and kept things going all weekend.

The Architechs' latest party, called "Yao," got started at House of Hong and featured DJs ETA and Mr. F along with resident DJs Delve and XL. If you haven't been down there yet, parking sucks (hey, it's Waikiki), but once you get a drink and kick back on the second floor for a bit, things always seem a little better.

On Saturday the party moved on to Pipeline Cafe, where the Architechs teamed up with Kaizo Speedgear for another edition of "Sweet and Sour." DJ Mixmaster B and the Nocturnal Sound Krew's DJs Compose and Jami were featured guests at this one. The guys then finished things up Sunday night with a decidedly more upscale event: The Spring Break edition of "Heaven" took place at Sarento's with million-dollar views and a 21-and-over crowd. DJ Compose returned for another night on the wheels of steel, along with DJ Jules. Congrats on three years, guys ...

BUTDON'T get it twisted; things will definitely be off the chain during another anniversary tonight at Wave Waikiki. For the last five years (that's 260 Tuesday nights, if you do the math), the Pussycat Lounge has catered to industry folks, professional party animals and those of us who never seem to learn that waking up on Wednesday morning with a hangover is not a good idea.

Tonight, "Superstar" DJ Keoki comes home to headline Pussycat's five-year celebration; DJs Mark Chittom, Daniel J, G-Spot, KSM, Racer X and the Stone Groove Family (DJs G-Dog, Gary O., Jrama and Sub-Zero) will be on hand to rock the decks alongside DJs Jedi, Rayne, Rundown, Scotty Soul, Syze1 and Daddy's Girl. Get there early for some of the free sushi and cocktails that will accompany a performance by Abstractheory (formerly Turnstyles) ...

GRAB YOUR share of $25,000 in free stuff, including a 2003 Toyota Corolla, tomorrow night during "Epic Sesh 2" at Pipeline. Kala'i Miller will host a $1,000 winner-take-all bikini contest ...

MAHALO PLENTY to the Star-Bulletin's Dave Donnelly -- turns out it was Kamakazi Kong who played with Go Jimmy Go last weekend. Legendary radio deejay Kamasami Kong was in Japan hosting a party for the Rolling Stones ...
