Big Island's fave band touring Mainland
I went to see Leche de Tigre, Afro/Cuban jazzy drum driven Latin Gypsy Funk w/ beautiful female vocalist a few years ago in Honoka'a, up the Hamakua coast from Hilo. They were opening for Medicine for the People and we became instant fans. Indie Folk Hip Hop Singer Song Writer Drum Dance, I'm not sure how to classify them, but they put on great shows, and you get to stomp on fucking hippies!
Medicine is touring all over the Mainland these days, they put on a good show (and girls like them, maybe you'll get layed). So check out the dates.
Nahko, the lead, is hapa Native American, Puerto Rican, Fillipino, and a child of a rape. He has obviously dealt with his demons and is sharp, exuberant, dark, and he and the band take their message of "find your medicine and use it," seriously.
Come to the Big Island (I think they have straight jobs) to see Leche de Tigre:

18th in Portland with Paula Fuga and Mike Love - I was at the local Puna Music Festival and this 40ish long hair, and I mean long, his dread hit his butt, came in with the very fat Hawaiian woman. I thought, gee, only in Puna do you see couples like them. Next thing I know they, Paula and Mike, are on stage. They were the headliners. She's kinda Hawaiian emo, he's hard beat, rap/rock, and they play off each other well. With Medicine it will be a great show."Preparing mentally, the most important thing is, if you aren't doing it for the love of it, then don't do it." - Benny Urquidez
