Who’s in the band, and what do they play?
Derek Barbadillo is our heartbeat of a drummer, Seth Lenchanko play the guitar and sings and Jake Lenchanko plays bass and sings.
What has Above Reproach been up to lately? Any albums, new music, shakeups?
We’re in the final stages of recording our debut album, “Radio Interference,” which will be out next year.
What do you think of Night Market and the growth of the Kakaako district?

Local band Pink Mist has been respected in the indie scene for its innovative, reflective, shoegazey alt-rock since the trio of guitarist Mike Pooley, bassist Kai Salus and drummer Aagnano Septella first got together, setting aside time from their other bands and musical projects to try something different. Bringing to mind coastal atmospheres and memories of the California coastline combined with Hawaii’s beautiful landscape, Pink Mist’s melodies and songs can give one the impression they’re on a road trip.
We talked with Pink Mist frontman, guitarist and vocalist Mike Pooley briefly to catch up on what the band is doing these days, and to get his take on Kakaako.
So what has Pink Mist been up to lately?
We have been playing a lot of shows and working on new music with our new drummer Steve Smith. We ended our bro love with our old drummer, Aagnano, on great terms and he is enjoying playing with his sweet girl Emily in a new band called PAGE.
Give me a few words to describe the “vibe” of your music.
Nostalgic, melodic, fuzzy.
What do you think of Night Market and the growth of the Kakaako district?
Unfortunately, I have never been to Night Market. To say that out loud makes me realize I need to get out more. But I have always wanted to check it out, so i’m excited my first experience will be playing it. I think the growth of Kakaako is exactly what Honolulu’s art scene needs. With the all too familiar shady vibe of Chinatown, it’s nice to know there is an arts district that doesn’t make you clutch your purse when you walk around. It also has a different kind of energy than Chinatown, probably because it’s new and everyone is still bubbling with passion and excitement.
Catch Pink Mist playing on the Main Stage from 9-10 p.m., after the fashion show!
Our performers at Night Market this month are sure to be a treat! Here’s the lineup, and more about them:
Singer/Songwriter Izik grew up in Hawaii. His interest in music was nurtured and cultivated at a very young age when his grandmother insisted on him learning how to play an instrument. He learned the guitar and began songwriting during his freshman year of high school. In 2012, Izik was asked to perform at a fundraiser for The Life Foundation at Hula’s Bar and Lei Stand in Waikiki, which led to a weekly gig for the next year and more shows. Currently Izik is working on his EP but you can catch him on Wednesdays at Hula’s Bar and Lei Stand in Waikiki and monthly at Monkeypod Ko ‘Olina where he performs with G.J., Cole Strona, Christian Bautista, Aaron Yabes and Melanie Kaneaiakala.
Retro 5-0 is a band that does covers like no one else in Honolulu! They will be rocking the Night Market stage with songs from Pat Benatar, No Doubt, Joan Jett, Blondie, Journey, Incubus, Bon Jovi, Van Halen, Evanescence and more.
The Island Oasis Ensemble’s repertoire includes classic Egyptian selections, Turkish, Armenian, Persian and Roma folk music, and original pieces in the modern Tribal Fusion style. The Ensemble includes Aaron Aranita on sax, flute, and piano, Kip McAtee on classical and fretless guitar, Ernie Provencher on upright and electric bass, and Tara Severns on dumbek and percussion. Dancers Masayo (who teaches contemporary and modern Egyptian belly dance and Kalae ( the lead Choreographer and Artistic Director of the ‘Shakti Dance Movement’ Tribal Fusion dance company) will be joining them for their performance.
Cindy of Badra Belly Dance:
Cindy of Badra Ritual Belly Dance began belly dancing in NYC more than 10 years ago, and has always been drawn to the deeper aspect of dance. She believes dance is something that should bring women together and remind our culture of the magic, beauty, and softness of the feminine principal.
The Spatial Sculptors are Honolulu’s contact and compositional improvisation dance ensemble.
They meet the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month at Alive Ballet Center to form an integrated community of movers that explore weight, contact, and communication in relation to each other and our environment. Each meeting consists of warming up with solo work and structured group work, a review of techniques and skills that we select and explore together, and ends with a dance “jam”. All people with an interest in movement and exploration are welcome (including musicians, poets, etc).
This month is all about fashion, and to that end, we’ve enlisted the help of Honolulu Magazine and Honolulu Shops Fashion Editors Stacey Makiya and Brie Thalmann as our stylists for the fashion show on the main stage.
“Fashions will be themed around the Fall/Winter 2013 season’s playful mix & match prints trend,” said Brie Thalmann. “A few of the designers/brands that will be featured include T By Alexander Wang, 3.1 by Phillip Lim, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Alexander McQueen.”
The featured retailer at October’s show: CUSP by Neiman Marcus, a new contemporary concept by Neiman Marcus in select stores across the country, including Ala Moana Mall location. CUSP delivers the latest must-haves from leading designers, plus the best up-and-coming names, hand-selected by Neiman Marcus’ fashion experts for work, play and everything in between.
