#HNLNightMarket Spotlight: Above Reproach & other entertainment



#HNLNightMarket Spotlight: Above Reproach & other entertainment

Honolulu alternative rock band ABOVE REPROACH will be playing the Main Stage from 9:30-10:30 p.m. this Saturday. If you’ve never heard of these guys before, here’s a quick intro, in the form of a brief interview with bassist and singer Jake Lenchanko.

Give us a few words to describe the “vibe” of your music.

We have a rock sound that believes that everyone should have a equal voice in this world and that “not one is greater than the other.” We stand up for truth because we’re tired of the lies.

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?

We heard a lot of great things about Night Market and can’t wait to perform! It’s always great when new venues pop up that are family oriented too.

The Schedule:

JacqRiot: 6-7 p.m. on the Main Stage

Jacqueline Govan, an electro/r&b Los Angeles recording artist working on her first EP, The Riot is Here , brings her energy to the Night Market stage before a set at The Fix Saturday night.

Fashion Show by Salt + Sand: At 8 p.m. on the Main Stage

#HNLNightMarket Performer Preview: Pink Mist



#HNLNightMarket Performer Preview: Pink Mist

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!
