Tues., March 05, Anuhea
Harlow's Restaurant & Nightclub, 9 p.m., $15-$18
Non-Jamaican reggae is booming as of late thanks to a handful of talented Hawaiian and Californian artists. Last time she came to town, Hawaii's Anuhea packed Harlow's Restaurant & Nightclub with fans on just three weeks notice. Chalk it up to her unique ability to meld sunny Hawaiian style, soul and sassy pop. Love songs such as “Higher than the Clouds,” “I Just Want You Around” and “Simple Love Song” put you in a dreamlike state with their laid-back vibes. They've also helped Anuhea become one of the most played modern artists on Hawaiian radio stations. Fellow islander Justin Young and Sac's Squarefield Massive open. 2708 J Street, www.anuheajams.com.
