On The Grid — 9/23/15
Sept. 23 WED
NEXTDOOR 10TH ANNIVERSARY PARTY
For the last 10 years, amazing things have happened at Nextdoor — like that time a few years back when Blue Scholars stopped in to make it “feel sorta like Blaisdell.” There’s been art, fashion, dancing — everything. So celebrate its 10th anniversary with a gold-themed birthday party, complete with drinks, pupus, a midnight balloon drop and more. Doors open at 6 p.m., and there’s no cover charge. A portion of the night’s proceeds will go to owner Daniel Gray and Metro columnist Christa Wittmier in support of their ongoing battles with cancer.

THE STORY OF EVERYTHING
AT MAMIYA THEATRE
So, we could try explaining poet laureate and HawaiiSlam founder Kealoha’s new show, The Story of Everything, but this one might be better simply experienced. In a nutshell, it’s the story of creation, which will draw on just about everything — poetry, visual art, music, dancing and more — to tell how it all came to be. The show starts at 7 p.m. and tickets cost $5-$15. To learn more about the show, see the article in last week’s Metro at metrohnl.com.
AT THE REPUBLIK
Producer Valentino Khan (he’s worked with the likes of Bruno Mars and Tyga, among others) performs at The Republik with Meaux Green and DJs Debin and Graves. The night starts at 9 p.m., and tickets cost $39 for general admission (VIP tickets also are available for $79 and include a lanyard, swag bag and access to a designated section).
80S POP MUZIK
AT BAR 35
Get a head start on Halloween with this month’s 80s Pop Muzik, themed 80s Zombie Prom — “a night to dismember.” Join Lana Saldania and DJ Nocturna (pictured) for a night of ‘80s music, goth and industrial sounds, along with live music from Black Rose. Cash prizes will go to the most original corpse, most popular couple and most undead living couple. The night will start at 9 p.m.
