Support Ooklah’s

KICK OFF your weekend tomorrow night at Anna Bannanas and give the guys from Ooklah the Moc a hand in raising money while enjoying an evening of tasty reggae riddims.

The guys will be playing to help drum up support for an upcoming album. Proceeds from the door will help offset production costs. Call 946-5190 for more details ...

ALSO ON Friday, the monthly "Trip the Lights" party returns to Studio 1 starting at 9 p.m.

This month's emcee battle, according to organizer Kavet the Catalyst, will be a "topic battle," where participants are given a pre-selected subject at random before facing off against their opponent.

If you've got the skills, registration for the battle is at 8 p.m. Otherwise, bring five bucks to get in and watch heads roll ...

YOU'VE GOT another chance at being on television this weekend -- head over to Nick's Fishmarket on Saturday night for a shot at being in "The Lei," a locally produced, reality-based dating show set to make its debut Sept. 14.

Auditions for "The Lei" will run from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Saturday, and cameras will be rolling all night long, so make sure you dress to impress. Call 392-4012 ...
