Posting this again cause it is coming up this Friday.
The reason why this show is important for our little local scene is because the Honolulu Academy of Art is taking note of what we have all been working so hard on for the past couple of years and is making a very strong attempt at highlighting this in their Doris Duke Theater. Without the support of everyone involved in our scene, events like this will just come and go. I for one love our chinatown venues and appreciate the hard work the musicians and promoters put in week after week, every show that is thrown is down purely out of passion. Personally, I appreciate the chance to play in different venues, for different crowds. It is a challenge because it puts us out of our comfort zone and it gives people an opportunity to actually hear our songs instead of attempting to decipher what we work so hard on over the background sounds of a bar.
To the credit of the Doris Duke management, they are working extremely hard to expose the bands involved to their members along with the public, not to mention they are treating us amazing, along with setting us up interviews with the local papers who haven’t really taken notice of our passion filled music scene.
I guess my point is, I hope people who are involved in the local music scene support these events, because friday’s event is just the first of hopefully many more to come. I know the $10 ticket price is more expensive than what we are used to, but it’s because the theater is an expensive baby to feed. Even if you don’t come, if you can just take a moment to help get the word out, it will be very appreciated.
Thanks for taking the time on reading….I just wanted to share my thoughts on why this event is important and a bit different than the usual show.
If you know you definitely want to come, you can buy your tickets here.
this is important.
