THE TALENTED local DJ collective Sisters in Sound represent Hawaii to the fullest this month on the pages of URB Magazine.
All five members of the group -- DJs Chia, Marloca, Toki, Zita and Ms. Angel -- are quoted in the "Hey, DJ!" item, giving props to 12 Inch Species and recognizing the importance of local Web site Quadmag.com in bringing them together.
Don't sleep on the rest of the magazine, either. This month's issue also has an interesting story about Linkin Park's Asian-American connections, an interview with TV On the Radio and a listing of the 100 most interesting artists making waves. Good stuff ...
TICKETS ARE still available for Enson Inoue's headlining bout at Super Brawl 35 next week, but there wasn't an empty seat in the house at East Side Grill on Friday night when another local fighter appeared on television screens there.
Hilo boy Wes "Cabbage" Correira faced Andre Arlovski during the undercard of Ultimate Fighting Championship 47 at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Current UFC welterweight champ (and fellow Hilo boy) B.J. Penn was also at ringside. Too bad the referee stopped the fight in the second round, giving Arlovski the win ...

Donations are still being accepted to help pay for Leilani's medical bills; visit www.oursweetleilani.com for info ...
IF SUNDAY is supposed to be a day of rest, why am I always so busy? Playing catch up in the newsroom meant I had to miss the grand opening of "The Garden of Eden," a daytime poolside party put together by Scottie Soul.
Still, I thought I had played my cards right, since a friend of a friend had e-mailed me about an underground beach party going on that night on a strip of secluded south shore sand. DJ Max Graham had reportedly decided to stay an extra night in Honolulu, and would be spinning under the stars.
But the elusive full moon party I've been hearing about for months remained hidden -- I couldn't find anything where I was told to look, and an early morning interview the next day had me calling it quits around 2 a.m. without any success. Lose money ...
