Rock bands will
take center stage

The next five days promise to be action-packed if you're a fan of rock music.

Get started tonight at the Wave Waikiki, as The Crud headlines the first installment of "Thunder Thursdays" at the club. They'll be joined by Linus and Harrison, and everyone 21-and-over with a valid college or military ID will be spared the $5 cover charge.

Not old enough to drink? No worries -- this is one of those rare 18-and-over events at the Wave ...

THE FUN moves just down the street tomorrow, with a new and improved version of "Rockstar Fridays" at the Hard Rock Cafe.

Hosted by Vertical Junkies, the party promises "more danceable hits" to go with $3 Beck's and $4 Jack Daniels all night. It also continues with an emphasis on live music, with Warsaw Poland Bros. lined up to rock out this week.

And for all you penny-pinchers out there, be sure to get to the Hard Rock by 11 p.m. There's absolutely no charge to get in before then ...

ON SATURDAY, get over to Anna Bannana's for a musical orgy with some of Honolulu's hardest rocking local acts.

Underworld Events is hosting the all-ages show, which starts at 6 p.m. and features headliners Debauch and 8MM Overdose.

Other bands scheduled to perform include Shadows of Sanctity, The Aftermath, Your Accomplice, Laissez Faire, Haole Rot, The Quintessentials, Midnight Ablaze, Deep Wounded, Pacifica, Morbid Hunger and Tondra. Visit www.underworldevents.com for more info ...

AND DON'T forget about the rescheduled Testament show on Monday at Pipeline Cafe.

Doors open at 7 p.m. for the 18-and-over concert, with local openers Amplified, Crucible and Dagra scheduled to hit the stage starting at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20 at the door; call 589-1999 ...

OTHER OPTIONS for the weekend and beyond: Head over to The Living Room around midnight tomorrow to see the first installment of "Burn" in action. The graffiti competition will feature some of Oahu's most secretive artists, who have all come together for a legal opportunity to see who's best ... Las Vegas promoter John Huntington returns with DJ Skribble on Saturday for another "Club Rubber" at Pipeline Cafe. He's hooked up with Artist Groove Network this time around, which should bring back memories of their recent stint at the club ... And on Tuesday, Maui's own Willie K. makes a rare appearance at Chai's Island Bistro. He'll play from 7 to 9:30 p.m. at the restaurant; call 585-8011 for reservations ...
