On the Scene
‘Down Low’ at the Wave Waikiki
'DOWN LOW' WITH JACK:
Wave Waikiki owner Jack Law, third from left, welcomed Flash Hansen, Heather Colletto and Angie Hill to his "Down Low Party" at the Wave Waikiki on Sunday. Although the "official" public closing of the Wave hadn't broken up until around 5:30 Sunday morning, Law and the Wave staff were back Sunday night for a post-closing party for former staffers like Hansen and guests Law described as "people (who) have performed onstage or who have at least a dozen Wave stories." "Down Low" got off to a slower start than the public party did the night before, but it continued well past the scheduled pau time of 4 a.m. Monday.
Dee Dee Crowton, left, enjoyed a last night at the Wave with her daughter, Jillian, center, and her big sister, Shirley Krob. Dee Dee and Shirley were Wavers back in the '80s.
Maleko, representing Star 101.9, said the thing he would miss the most was "meeting great people (at the Wave)." Adriane Flower, who stopped by after catching "The Notorious Bettie Page" at the Academy of Arts, said her favorite band at the Wave had been Rail.
SHE'S GOT LEGS!
Erika Aloang, right, talked with John Austin and Lucilia Lu. Aloang, rhythm guitarist of Missing Dave, surprised many Wavers by wearing a skirt to the party instead of jeans -- and she looked great doing it. Aloang said the only time she dares wear a skirt is when she's not working.
A WAVE PARTY FOR TWO:
Elise Elizabeth and Jackson Andrew enjoyed "Down Low" in the lounge upstairs.
GREAT SHIRT, JACK:
Mary Ann Changg admired Jack Law's "Wave Waikiki 1980-2006" commemorative T-shirt.
SHE'S LEGAL NOW:
Kathy Mawae, left, talked with Paula Lackson Hong, center, and Erin Sanchez about the early '90s when she was underage but was dating an "older man" who could get her in.
A NIGHT OFF FOR FERNANDO:
Pimpbot's dynamic front man Fernando Pacheco enjoyed the party with Wave promo person Sarah La Glam.
SHE'S GOING TO HULA'S:
Tess Cachola, center, was greeted by Jackie Sayno, left, and Tammy Pascual. After working 14 years at the Wave, Cachola is now at Hula's Bar & Lei Stand. Everything left at the Wave will be auctioned off at 10 a.m. tomorrow.
