Local promoters Underworld Events bring The Dead Kennedys October 22nd to The Hard Rock Café Maui in Lahaina, and October 23rd to The Loft in Honolulu. http://underworldevents.com has more information. Hear a Dead Kennedys classic below.
91.1 FM Hilo is at low power until sunset as work continues to install new cell phone equipment on the tower. 88.5 FM on O'ahu is operating at low power; we hope to restore full power sometime Friday. All other transmitters are operating normally.
