Fun for you,
cash for them

SHAKE YOUR tailfeather for a couple of good causes this weekend at a pair of fund-raisers scheduled on Saturday.

Out at Kaiser High School, a special outdoor concert featuring Ho'onu'a, Round and Round, Wayne Borje and Kale Imua will get under way at 5 p.m.

Outback Steakhouse will also be there, serving up steak or rotisserie chicken dinners to everyone who buys a ticket. Money raised from the concert will be used to help fund Kaiser's drama department, saving it from being shut down this academic year.

Tickets for Kaiser's "Concert on the Lawn" are $25 at the door; $15 for keiki under 10 years old. Call 258-0527 ...

BACK IN town, the Hawaii Pacific University baseball team will hold a fund-raising concert at the Beach House at Aloha Tower Marketplace, starting at 6 p.m.

You'll definitely get your money's worth at this one -- the $20 admission charge gives you a chance to take in performances by Aloha, B.E.T., Makaha Sons, Maunalua, Milo Shade, Sean Na'au'ao, Pati, Raiatea Helm, Robi Kahakalau and Ten Feet. And while you're there, check out the cooking demonstrations by Sam Choy that are scheduled, too. Call 566-0644 ...

FUND-RAISERS NOT your speed? How's about a CD release party instead? The guys from Battle Royale are celebrating their new album, "God, the Devil and the World," with a concert at the X-Factory from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. tomorrow.

Joining Battle Royale on stage at this one are opening acts Linus, Push the Pedal and Middleton. Five bucks gets you in; call 330-6616 ...

ON SUNDAY, head over to Gordon Biersch for an early evening of Hawaiian music and hula with Na Kama. They'll be celebrating the release of "Come and See ... Hawaii" with some help from Ho'okena, Pai'ea and Kanilau. There are also hula performances scheduled by Halau O Kamuela, Halau O Hokulani, Halau Na Wahine and Ka Pa Hula O Kamehameha. This one is free to check out; call 780-2584 ...

AND IF you can't wait for Halloween next weekend, get your scream on tonight from 6 p.m. to midnight at "Shockhouse," a haunted house at the Blaisdell's Hawaii Suites. Ten rooms of horrors await, and the freakiness continues through Sunday and repeats next weekend. Check out tomorrow's Weekend section for more info.

Admission for "Shockhouse" is $7.50 for adults; $4 for keiki 4-12 years old; and free for keiki 3 years and under. Call 591-2211 ...
