The Weekly Dish May 20 edition

May 21, 2011 - Trisha Smith
Catch all the stellar community news & views from Maui's weekend jumpstart, talk variety radio show with Trish da Dish & Shawn Michael.

This morning was meaningful, hectic and intriguing as ever, chocked full of great information on everything Maui, whether it's community news and human interest stories from the Maui Weekly, or tidbits and special deals from some of the isle's greatest small businesses.

Shea and Kyle from Kaua‘i's hybrid rock outfit Skunkdog gave a live interview while in-route to the Valley Isle for their big show tonight with Maui's own "vibemasters," Arise at Moose's in Lahaina. I had the pleasure of enjoying the trio last year when they opened for The Vandals, and they killed it. Also, I've heard nothing but rave reviews of their shows on Kaua‘i with Maui's own dynamo acts, The Throwdowns and MOTH.

(SIDENOTE: Due to copyright infringement and just pure sucky luck, MOTH will be changing its name to MOTH.xp officially as some other band thinks they own the name and have for awhile, according to iTunes. All good—there's always a bit of of fine-tuning required to be as amazing as MOTH.xp will continue to be. Visit to experience a taste of the madness.)

Catch Skunkdog tonight in Lahaina at Moose's for only $5. Show kicks off after 9 p.m., so come smell their sweet stench, ya hear?

Apparently, some wack jobs say the world is going to end tomorrow, but I'm pretty sure we're cool. I try to avoid cult-like beliefs, and live this crazy journey to the fullest every day. Plus, I have a "whole lotta love" left to give and life left to live, so it just wouldn't be right... hahaha

My groovy sidekick Shawn Michael and I welcomed Ann Taumole from Who Cut the Cheese and Cindy Eiting from Stella Blues for an early morning wine & dine segment, followed by some sweet tips from Kihei's newest auto service locale, Kihei Automotive. Paul Janes-Brown gave us the scoop on the eclectic arts scene, and Josh Richardson from 808 Deli graced us with his awesome presence and the tasty details behind his charming family business across from Kam II Beach.

Alright, off to play with the Wayans Bros for some flavorful comedy, then boogie on down with the fine brothers of Skunkdog and Arise later.

Thanks for listening every Friday morning from 7 to 8 a.m. on KAOI 1110AM & 96.7FM. Keep it real, do something for your community this weekend and have a good time. Live Aloha. Word.

Trish :-)
