Carey hits Stan Sheriff next month
Back from Los Angeles and Las Vegas, the land of $12 cocktails, $30 cover charges and $300 jeans. I'd love to tell you more about my trip, but there's just too much stuff going on here, and not enough space to write about it all!
So lets get started with one of the biggest, if not the biggest, musical events of 2005 for the under-40 crowd. Who needs the Eagles when you've got Mariah Carey?
Check out this story for full details about where and when tickets will go on sale this weekend. Just be prepared to shell out big bucks...
While the pop superstar enjoyed success this year with "It's Like That," "We Belong Together" and "Shake it Off," all off the album "The Emancipation of Mimi," it will be nice to see Carey perform some of the other hits that helped shape her career. Remember "Vision of Love," "Someday" and the notorious remix of "Fantasy" with Ol' Dirty Bastard? ...
AND THOSE aren't the only shows I need to tell you about. A date has been set for next month's De La Soul concert. They'll perform Dec. 3 at Pipeline ... But before that, make plans to check out the Pharcyde on Nov. 12. Doors open at 7 p.m. for this 18-and-over show at the Pipe, with tickets priced at $25 and $40. Pick up $20 pre-sale tickets at the club, Jelly's or Hawaii's Natural High ... Also on the way to Honolulu next month: Hawthorne Heights on Dec. 15 and Pato Banton on Dec. 16. And yes, they too will play at Pipeline ...
SAVVY FANS of Drum-N-Bass didn't trip when "Audiolab" left the Mercury Bar a few months back.
That's because a new monthly party sprung up to replace it almost immediately. "Subphonix" takes place every first Friday, featuring some of the same faces that made "Audiolab" successful.
The fun starts at 10 p.m. for the 21-and-over crowd, with a $12 cover charge in effect. This month, DJs Antikkz, Empyr, Meilo and Synrgy will open things up for the UK's DJ Dylan. He wraps up a 12-city national tour tomorrow, and will be joined by Robyn Chaos for more than two hours of nonstop tag-team turntable action ...
OTHER PARTIES worth a look this weekend: Former Hawaii resident DJ Scottie Soul returns for a guest appearance at Indigo tomorrow ... Linus the Band celebrates their new "Masters of the Universe" recording with a CD release party at the Wave Waikiki on Saturday. Swampa ZZ and the Nocturnal Sound Krew's DJ Eskae will also be on hand ... And Pimpbot headlines the latest "Virgins of Punk" concert at Coffee Talk on Saturday before heading to the Wave to support Linus. The Radical Cheerleaders, 2face4 and PHF round out the lineup at this all-ages show ...
