This Led Zeppelin tribute concert is not only "sweet refrain / soothes the soul and calms the pain..." for die hard fans of this legendary band, but yours truly has an overwhelmingly grateful interest in that organizers/artists ("all of my love to you") are generously dedicating the night to help

Thorne Branches Out: Celtic Tigers' front-man releases personal, 'ohana-inspired solo albumAugust 04, 2010 | 04:30 PMby Anuhea YagiTo think that musician Murray Thorne might have ended up as a Canadian cabinet-maker hurts like a kiwae spike through the slippah of my Maui-music-loving soul. Sure, his early career choice might have made some north of the border kitchenistas happy, but our local scene would be missing some of its essential spice. Happily for us, Thorne is the type who can't help but heed the call to rock—and has come to

Arts and EntertainmentJuly 14, 2010 | 03:34 PMby Anuhea Yagi"Comedy is supposed to be outside of territories, outside of reason, outside of logic. It's supposed to be the outside-looking-in perspective," says Shaggy Jenkins. So when Augie Tulba told Shaggy that if he wanted to pursue comedy, he'd "have to do it differently," that logic fit nicely. But Shaggy is a busy

Saturday (June 26), 8pm, Mulligan's on the Blue, Wailea, $10 advance / $15 doorJune 23, 2010 | 03:44 PMby Anuhea Yagi"Woo hoo" for The Throwdowns and "nana nana boo boo" to the naysayers. I can't help but feel utterly celebratory for this band—one that is as sugar-and-fire as the torched tops of creme brulee. More than simply

Picks of the Week
Some choice spots to tip back a cup o' kindness…This is my third week back at writing Picks, and WTF? It's New Year's! When I was whisked away to play in Cancer Land, I had hardly finished my trick-or-treating. Turns out, Mulligan's on the Blue (874-1131) is as trapped in October as I am. For their New Year's party, they're featuring their All Hallows Eve music line-up (Kulture Klash 808, Fish Tank and Off Tomorrow) and they're hosting a costume party. There'll be $500 in prizes (put those creative juices to work, they're seeking creatively themed threads), and whether you opt for the dinner package with complimentary champagne toast ($60, call for reservations) or for the gigs alone ($10 advance/$15 door), you score a killer view of the Wailea aerials. On the topic of tenuous timelines, you know who else had their calendars all screwy? Everyone, from 47 BC until 1582. It wasn't until the end of the 16th century—and the centuries following Pope Gregory XIII's reformation of the Julian calendar—that many world countries adopted the Gregorian version and began to embrace January 1 as the day that "we'll take a right guid-willie waught, for auld lang syne." Uh, OK. Whatever that means. Oh c'mon. Nobody really knows the lyrics to that song we pretend to sing but once a year. Besides, you ought to be too busy smooching... or drinking… or at the very least, blowing those annoying paper noisemakers that fall limp with too much drunken spit. If you want some Willie songs (of the "Georgia On My Mind" variety) that you can really sing along to, I'll remind you of last week's Pick to check out Charley's ($75, 579-8085). Also last week, I encouraged every Bad Santa to head over to Casanova (572-0220) for the Kit Kat Club's Christmas Cabaret. Whether avoiding Claus's naughty list or your girlfriend's s#%t list, I'm guessing a few of you might have stayed home. But New Year's is a holiday of second chances, and the Kit Cat Club cuties are giving you just that with their New Year's Eve Party—replete with bubbly and a soiree of DJs, gogo dancers and sideshow acts hot enough to light fireworks. What else should be hot? Your fingers—lighting up the phone to call Timba ($25, 661-9873) and secure your New Year's Eve reservations. The Hard Rock Café (667-7400) will feature DJ Chuck for just $7—with a portion of the proceeds going to World Hunger—and they too boast a gratis toast. And if you need as many options as Tiger's got mistresses, Next Level takes over the Kahului Ale House while All Access Entertainment is busy putting on the party at Diamonds Ice Bar (874-9299), Oceans Bar & Grill (891-2414), and Lulu's Lahaina (661-0808).

Picks of the Week 4
Saturday (Sept. 19), 5-8:45pm, Mulligan's on the Blue, Wailea, $12/$15Marla Johnson is beloved by many. So beloved in fact, that when this too-cool chica is being consumed by medical expenses, people come out in force to show their support and aloha. Paula Fuga (need I say more?) headlines with Mike Love (his every-instrument super loop spectacle is truly something to behold), along with the versatility of Kanoa of Gomega, the virtuosity of Derick Sebastian, the feisty, cherub-faced Erin Smith, and the smooth sounds of Benoit Jazz Works. Mike O'Dwyer is hosting The Irish Dating Game, where you can bid for a date with a hottie and a helicopter ride (among other cool stuff). The silent auction is packed with things worth coveting (snorkel trips, fine jewelry, signed Iron Maiden and Mick Fleetwood memorabilia, spa services, hotel/golf packages and Maui Time Weekly ads), and there are few cooler thrills than a penned battle for the goods, and for a good cause. 100 Kaukahi St., Wailea, 808-874-1131.
