Google "Tony Tam Sing" and you'll come across the blog Asita Recordings. I did, at least. Didn't find any info on the elusive TONY psych-folk LP, but I did learn that Lightsleepers recently started one of Hawaii's only record sale/swaps. There's been a few other big record shows in Hawaii, but BRB is the only one giving "Hawaii's diggers, vinyl junkies and collectors" a chance to meet in one place.
The first BRB went down in early 2010. The next BRB? Coming up real soon.
September 11th, 2010
831 Queen St. @ Fresh Café
9am - 3pm :: FREE
What's Fresh Café? Sounds like an underground hip-hop club where DJs and emcees rock local crowds every weekend. But it's really a café that serves 100% Kona coffee! It also has the "latest cafe hours in town" (2:30am on weekends).
BRB doesn't squeeze 20+ vendors into the café, though. The coffee shop has warehouse space in back where they host live music, art and poetry.
Much aloha and respect to Lightsleepers and Fresh Café for the Beatroot Bodega! I only hope I can be at the next one!
UPDATE: BRB has been moved from Sept. 18th to Sept. 11th. email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
