We had a little urban blip happen last night at the Hui. Being a musician and a well seasoned city dweller I found the show average, yet the kids, the young ones were havening fun with their creative out put. I have some photos I'll put up later. Nice show, welcome to the city. Nice to see interactions with the youth of Maui.
