The Airborne Toxic Event is headed to Hawai`i… The California group is known for orchestral arrangements and instruments unconventional for rock, including a viola. Their biggest hit so far is the 2009 cross-format smash Sometime Around Midnight. HPR’s Dave Lawrence spoke to band-leader Mikel Jollett, who along with his band mates, has visited Hawai`i several times prior to this debut appearance with the group.
The band perform on Maui January 20th at the MACC, and January 21st at the Hawai`i Theatre in Honolulu. Get more info at their website, http://theairbornetoxicevent.com. Here are some videos from the band:
