'Last' series continues at Anna Bannana's

Despite a lack of official confirmation from the owner of Anna Bannana's, local promoter 86 Productions is pressing on with its series of “;The Last ...”; parties at the Moiliili bar.

As the story goes, Anna's will lose its lease sometime next year and landowner Kamehameha Schools hasn't indicated whether it will be renewed. Until then, bands who have played there through the years are stopping in for what could be one last performance before last call.

Tomorrow's “;The Last X-Mas at Anna Bannana's”; will feature performances by Pimpbot, Black Square and Buckshot Shorty; DJ Mike Yi will spin between sets.

» Where: Anna Bannana's, 2440 S. Beretania St.

» Cost: $5 (18+)
» Call: 946-5190
