Incubus to perform in Oahu, Maui shows
Rock band Incubus returns to the islands after an absence of nearly a decade to play two shows on Oahu and Maui in early 2008.
Following a Pacific Rim tour, the band will play at the Waikiki Shell on March 21 and the Maui Arts & Cultural Center on the 22nd.
Incubus' latest album, 2006's "Light Grenades," included breakout tracks "Anna Molly," "Dig," "Love Hurts" and "Oil and Water," with charismatic lead singer Brandon Boyd.
Tickets for the Oahu show go on sale Thursday at the Blaisdell Center box office and Ticketmaster outlets, at $40 for the lawn, $49.50 terrace and $59.50 pool area. Charge by phone at (877) 750-4400 or visit www.ticketmaster.com.
Ticket information for the Maui show has not yet been announced.
Relive the Warriors' dream season tonight
The giddiness hasn't worn off -- and won't, at least until that New Year's Day bowl game passes -- so why not relive the dream?
The dream season (of course) of the University of Hawaii Warrior football team (who else?).
Airing at 7 tonight on KFVE is "The Greatest Season: Undefeated," starring Colt and the gang in game highlights, interviews and feature stories. It repeats at 9:30 p.m. Saturday.
On Dec. 31, also known as Sugar Bowl Eve, KFVE will air "The Greatest Season: Sugar Bowl Preview" at 7 p.m., with KHNL news anchor Howard Dashefsky and sports director Jason Tang reporting from New Orleans. The show repeats the next day at 2 p.m. Then comes the game, to be followed at about 7:30 p.m. by "The Greatest Season: Post-Game Show."

Presents for pets
Honolulu Theatre for Youth's pets like presents, too, and through December the Hawaiian Humane Society is hoping to send every adopted pet to its new home with a little treat.
Donations are being collected in bins throughout the society's shelter at 2700 Waialae Ave.
Suitable toys for dogs include Kong toys, Nylabones and Sterilized Beef Bones; for cats, anything without string.
As far as gifts for humans, the society offers the 2008 Pets in Paradise Calendar, available through www.hawaiianhumane.org, at the society and at Bark Avenue, the Cat Clinic, Crazy Canine, Feather and Fur Animal Hospital, Haiku Veterinary Clinic, Kaneohe VCA, Pet's Discount and Pet Depot.
