Expect feel good tropical grooves to fill the room at Mercury Bar on Saturday, May 18—Aloha Got Soul and Dig This Vibe join up with Chicago’s Andrew Brearley (Meaty Ogre) of Cherries Records for a free night of funk and soul dancin’.
Intoxicating, cool, funky, and surprising—the Alika Lyman Group’s performance at the Dragon Upstairs was a delight. This trio of talented individuals finessed their way through every song that night.
The Alika Lyman Group release their debut CD at The Dragon Upstairs this Friday. Their single, “Summer Me”, beckons to be played once, twice, or twenty times with its sound of lazy sunshine baking the brim of your hat.
There were four of us spinning: Shitzr, Aloha Got Soul, Oliver Twist, and Alston. What felt like a dream has landed on Honolulu’s music scene. Dig This Vibe is a reality, there’s no doubt about it.

Every year, hundreds of books, CDs, DVDs, vinyl LPs and 7-inch singles fill the cafeteria at the Friends of the Library of Hawaii’s Annual McKinley Booksale, attracting thousands of book lovers and music collectors to the Honolulu high school grounds. It’s a blessing to spend time with fellow diggers at an event like this, talking records, comparing finds, and watching the crowd buzz about with books tucked under their arms because their handtrucks are packed full. Good times.
