POW! WOW! Hawaiʻi is excited to announce the return of the POW! WOW! Hawaiʻi School of Music (PWSoM), a two-week intensive music training and mentorship course focused on music education and artist exploration for Hawaiʻi’s youth. PWSoM will provide a unique learning opportunity for a select group of student musicians of diverse backgrounds and musical styles between the ages of 12-18 who will explore the intersection of artists and art within the island community. The students will participate in a wide range of classes including music theory, music fundamentals, composition, improvisation, live sound, recording, performance, and the music business. Both local and national musicians, teachers, and music industry professionals will serve as the guiding force behind each lesson.

Through this unique dynamic, teachers and students will compose, brainstorm, invent, collaborate, explore, and create together. The culminating event – a live music concert at POW! WOW! Hawaiʻi’s closing night festivities on Saturday, February 14, 2015 – will debut the students’ collaborative efforts in creating original musical arrangements and compositions.

“PWSoM is about discovering what our relevancy is as artists within our community, how we benefit the community, and how we enrich the lives of our community and other artists,” states Nicholas Kaleikini, co-Director for PWSoM. He continues, “Our central focus is on creative collaborations, building self- expression and empowerment through community involvement, and the practical pursuit of a music career.”
Musicians and singers (age 12-18) are welcome to attend the “Open Call” on Saturday, January 17, 2015 from 9:00am – 11:30am at Lana Lane Studios to meet the teachers and program coordinators. At the “Open Call,” the perspective students will be evaluated on their skill level, ability to be mentored and a willingness to collaborate for placement into the program. Official invitations will be sent to those selected on January 25, 2015.

PWSoM will run simultaneously with POW! WOW! HAWAIʻI, beginning just a few days earlier on January 31, 2015 and completing all curriculum and rehearsals by February 14, 2015. The main dates for PWSoM are as follows:

Saturday, Jan. 31 | 12:00pm to 3:00pm
Monday, Feb. 2 – Friday, Feb 6 | 5:00pm to 8:00pm
Saturday, Feb. 7 – Sunday, Feb 8 | 12:00pm to 5:00pm
Monday, Feb. 9 – Friday, Feb 13 | 5:00pm to 8:00pm
Saturday, Feb. 14 | 6:00 pm (closing night performance)

PWSoM will be entirely held at LANA LANE STUDIOS, 327 Lana Lane, Kaka’ako, Hawai’i

Run The Jewels, the duo of El-P and Killer Mike, have just released their hotly anticipated sophomore album RTJ2, available as a free mp3 download (powered by CASH Music) as well as in CD, LP, and digital formats (including a deluxe iTunes edition featuring exclusive bonus track “Blockbuster Night Part 2”) from Mass Appeal Records, now streaming HERE The album racked up almost 200K free downloads in its first 3 days while simultaneously cracking the iTunes Top 10 album charts.

The group will celebrate on October 29th with a takeover of Rough Trade Records in New York, featuring an album play-through, a meet and greet, poster giveaways, and more. The event kicks off at 6:30pm- the first 20 attendees will also get passes to join fellow fans at a private event that night featuring a brief Q&A session with the group and Mass Appeal’s Sacha Jenkins, followed by a screening of perennial NYC classic The Warriors in a 92-seat movie theater.
