RUSSELL ROCKS!: Celebrity photographer Russell Tanoue, left, clowned with musician/model Laka, and Hawaii's "American Idol" star, Jordan Segundo, while a capacity crowd filled the Ocean Club for his second Piranha Room "Sin City" party on Saturday. "Sin City" salutes "the hottest nightclubs in Las Vegas," and the special guest this month was DJ Eddie who represented Light.

CONGRATULATIONS, SHARON!: Sharon Sanchez and boyfriend Junior Mika arrived after the screening party thrown in her honor by Greg Azus in his palatial Hawaii Kai home. Sanchez's new reality show, "Local Girl" follows her career and the search for a producer for her next record. It airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on Oceanic 78.

FRIENDS: Hiromi Nagata, right, enjoyed "Sin City" with Sayuki Fujiwara. Nagata, who plays a key role in facilitating Japanese entertainers' shows here, is the mother of recording artist Jennifer Perri. Her younger daughter, Jasmine, performs tonight when Hypersquad opens for Ashanti.
