Museum’s moonlight
concerts begin

TONIGHT marks the first of three outdoor concerts this summer at Bishop Museum. The first "Moonlight Mele on the Lawn" for 2003 begins at 7 p.m. and features Na Hoku Hanohano Award-winning acts Olomana and Na Palapalai.

"Helping to perpetuate the Hawaiian culture is something we're very proud of," says AIG Hawaii's Robin Campaniano. "We are very excited to be ... providing an amazing concert series to the public and having the proceeds benefit the Bishop Museum."

Gates open at 6 p.m. for the concert, which takes place on the lawn fronting Hawaii Hall. Tickets are $15, with discounts for AIG Hawaii and Bishop Museum members. Call 847-8290 ...

CAN'T MAKE it to Bishop Museum, but still want to check out some good music this weekend? Head into Waikiki and play tourist for a bit during one of the "Concerts On the Beach" planned at Duke's Canoe Club.

The Ka'ala Boys will perform tomorrow, with Kapena on deck for Saturday and Henry Kapono wrapping things up on Sunday. All three concerts run from 4 to 6 p.m., and Haumea Warrington will also entertain from 10 p.m. to midnight for those who like to stay out late. Call 922-2268 for more info ...

DJs Matt the Rat, Monkey, Oliver Twist and Seeko will join Kavet on the turntables tomorrow night, and there will be live performances and artwork displays as well. Five bucks gets you in, and the party goes from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. ...

THERE'S ANOTHER party I'm really looking forward to this weekend at Studio 1, but it's going to be really hard to get inside. The Stone Groove Family will celebrate six years on the scene with an invite-only event Monday night.

DJs G-Dog, Gary O, Jrama, Sub Zero and Freeze will have one important rule in effect -- no requests -- but they promise to "take you on a journey ... sucka freeeeee," according to G-Dog. Jesse Greenleaf and Gordo will host the festivities starting at 10 p.m.; good luck on scoring an invite to this one ...

AND FOR the third year in a row, DJ Solution walked off with top honors at the Honolulu qualifier for the 2003 DMC U.S. Championship last weekend at the Maze. DJs Anit and Mad took second and third place, respectively, but it's the Nocturnal Sound Krew member who will travel to the mainland for the U.S. finals in August ...
