ameron Cox, lead singer and saxophonist of Kauaâ&#x20AC;&#x2DC;iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own Applesauce, said he and his group strive to â&#x20AC;&#x153;keep the dance floor going and keep peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ears perked up.â&#x20AC;? So far, this high-energy quintet of musicians has had no trouble turning heads, delivering a progressive sound infused with funk and rock. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just really clicked right away,â&#x20AC;? Cox said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just been like an endless stream of writing and performing.â&#x20AC;? Earlier this month, in front of a jam-packed Trees Lounge in Kapaâ&#x20AC;&#x2DC;a, Applesauce unveiled its first EP during the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sauce EP Release Party.â&#x20AC;? Today, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re gearing up to record their first fulllength album in July. If you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had a chance to catch them live, Applesauce performs tonight at 9:30 p.m. at Backyards Bar and Grill in Kapaâ&#x20AC;&#x2DC;a. Bassist-producer Paul Cline â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who is also the CEO and founder of UnKnown Endeavors (U.K.E.) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; described Applesauce as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a rock-funk band with an eye toward classic rock sensibilities.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Musicianship is paramount and we inspire to

CHRIS Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ANGELO TGI FRIDAY First and foremost, Cox said he and his bandmates are lovers of music. If they can reach one person out of a million, Cox said he would be a happy guy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our basic collective trip is to try to spread some

love that we get from music â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or positivity or inspiration,â&#x20AC;? he said. Cline said Applesauce offers something completely unique for Kauaâ&#x20AC;&#x2DC;i and the response so far has been incredibly positive.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the band really resonates with people.â&#x20AC;? Applesauce performs tonight at Backyards and June 28 at Trees Lounge. For more information visit www.applesauceband. com.

Cox added that the group also dabbles in hip-hop, jazz and electronica. The handful of cover songs they do perform, Applesauce makes them their own. In 2008, Cox, guitarist Rory Marsh and drummer Chris â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hamsterâ&#x20AC;? White-Root moved from Kauaâ&#x20AC;&#x2DC;i to Seattle to pursue their love of music. To make a long story short, Cox said the three of them ended up â&#x20AC;&#x153;getting over the city, and mostly the cold.â&#x20AC;? They moved back to Kauaâ&#x20AC;&#x2DC;i, where they joined forces with Cline and percussionist Dan Muench to form Applesauce. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just been gelling as guys,â&#x20AC;? Cox said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really

nice to be in a band with like-minded people.â&#x20AC;? Cline said everyone brings something unique to the table, which has allowed the group to do everything on their own, from production to designing all of their own posters, merchandise and stickers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to be in-house, and I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of the way of the future,â&#x20AC;? Cline said. For now, Applesauce is focused on entrenching itself in the Hawaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2DC;i music scene. But the long-term goal is to take their sound to the Mainland. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to be professional musicians and make a living doing this thing,â&#x20AC;? said Cox, adding that the motivation and talent is there to make it happen.

This film has brought to light one of the most shocking cover-ups in history; sexual assault in the United States military, a just released Pentagon study estimated that 26,000 people in the armed services were sexually assaulted last year.

RED SALT

Red Salt, located in Ko‘a Kea Hotel and Resort at 2251 Po‘ipu Road, is open for breakfast from 6:30 to 11 a.m. and dinner from 6 to 9 p.m. ALDEN ALAYVILLA SPECIAL TO TGI FRIDAY

he inside of Red Salt is a sight to behold; contemporary architecture with minimalist qualities. I did not feel confined at all — plenty of open space to wine, dine or catch a game at the bar and sushi area. At the bar and sushi area I met Bartender Michael Berthiaume and Sushi Chef Justin Lopes. Berthiaume spoke briefly about Red Salt’s history as well as its cuisine. “We opened in April 2009 — same as the hotel from when it was the Po‘ipu Beach Hotel,” Berthiaume said. “The menu changes depending on what we get in, but we focus on fresh, local fish. Chef Adam tries to get as much local things as possible.” After Berthiaume spoke about the cuisine, I was introduced to Sushi Chef Justin Lopes. Lopes has been making sushi for eight years. He trained for two years on the Big Island under

Sushi Chef Toshi Kazu. “(Training) was super traditional and old-school Japanese,” Lopes said. “He was very strict and it was a very good experience.” Lopes prepared Red Salt’s Sashimi Sampler, $32. The sampler consists of ahi sashimi with a green apple and cilantro salad; salmon sashimi with cilantro, cherry tomatoes and black bean chili sauce; and hamachi sashimi with sliced jalapenos, fried shiitake mushrooms and fresh chiso. Lopes said he prepares sushi the way he wants to eat: “I love traditional sushi, but the way I like to eat it is with something that’s sweet and sour, a little bit of crunch — all textures and flavors. I like it fresh, easy to make.” Lopes added that fish prepared daily at Red Salt is fresh and local. “We use fresh, island fish from fish purveyors,” Lopes sad. “We get it in

today for today. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no second or third day (use of the fish).â&#x20AC;? The sushi Lopes prepared was exceptional -â&#x20AC;&#x201D; many flavors and textures â&#x20AC;&#x201D; exactly how he described earlier. Each bite left a lasting impression. It was some of the best sashimi Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever had the pleasure of tasting, especially since Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a sucker for salmon and ahi. After sampling the sashimi, I met with Executive Chef Adam Watten. Watten has been with Red Salt since its opening and has been its executive chef for a year. He attended New England Culinary Institute in Vermont and various apprenticeships throughout the United States. Watten primarily came to Kauaâ&#x20AC;&#x2DC;i to open Red Salt, but his affinity for the island also drew him in. Watten prepared Red Saltâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signature dish: The Madagascar Vanilla Bean Seared Mahi, $33. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a real simple dish on some tropical flavors,â&#x20AC;?

hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bit of a problem when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to decide what to drink at Red Salt. Do you want the Blueberry Acai, Red Coral or Wipeout? Before you scream in frustration, calm down, take a deep breath and listen to reason: Sample all three martinis.

The Martini Flight, $16, consists of three of Red Saltâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signature cocktails â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the Blueberry Acai, Red Coral and Wipeout. Bartender Michael Berthiaume, who has been on Kauaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;i for four years, mixed the Martini Flight lightning quick and described the ingredients of each sample. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Blueberry Acai is made from an organic vodka called Van Gough. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s naturally infused with

blueberry and acai. We also add housemade lemonade and garnish it (martini) with fresh blueberries.â&#x20AC;? The Wipeout is made with Finlandia Mango Vodka mixed with pineapple, mango and passion fruit. The Red Coral consists of Stoli Vanilla Vodka, Stoli Raspberry Vodka, a splash of Grenadine and pomegranate juice.

The Martini Flight is perfect for first-time patrons who want to get a feel for the onolicous cocktails Red Salt offers. Each sample offers everything you want in a sample â&#x20AC;&#x201D; variety, quality and presentation. Remember the selection of drinks I mentioned earlier? Well, Berthiaume said Red Salt has a wide selection.

Ever wonder what it would feel like to suddenly wake up in another universe? You could find out, perhaps, by joining the next space mission to another galaxy, or, slightly easier, you could go to your local multiplex and watch â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fast & Furious 6â&#x20AC;? without having seen the first five movies. Should you decide to undertake this anthropological

experiment, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d immediately discover there are things everyone except you already knows. For example: jokes about baby oil and big foreheads are very funny in this universe. Cars, of course, are the most important thing, and of course there are no speed limits. Weapons come next on the list, and the bigger the better â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but in one-on-one physical combat, bald heads are

surprisingly effective. Speaking of those fights: Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re brutal, yet somehow, no organs get damaged and even bruises are minimal. And oh yes, bikinis and bottoms are important. Not bikini bottoms â&#x20AC;&#x201D; well, those too â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but bottoms in bikinis. What this has to do with car racing is not entirely clear. Most importantly, in this

universe, there is no such thing as â&#x20AC;&#x153;less is more.â&#x20AC;? More is always more, and so, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fast & Furious 6â&#x20AC;? will delight fans of the franchise, because there is more of everything here. Director Justin Lin gives us not only great cars doing ridiculous things at ridiculous speeds, but also a huge army tank and a great stunt involving a giant cargo plane.

Newcomers will be a little confused as to who everyone is, since there is little explanation at this point, but fans will be glad to know their favorites are back, starting with Vin Dieselâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dom, the hotshot driver with the clean-shaven head (the better to butt other heads with) and a strong sense of family. When we first see him, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s careening down a winding cliff road in the Canary Islands with cohort/former cop Brian Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Conner (Paul Walker). Turns out theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re heading to the hospital, where Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife (and Domâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sister), Mia (Jordana Brewster, in a small role this time) is giving birth. A sweet family moment. Meanwhile, Dom, on the lam from the U.S. and hugely wealthy from his last venture, is shacked up in a sunny love nest with a gorgeous Brazilian cop (Elsa Pataky). Who needs to work? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what he tells Hobbs, the insanely buff federal agent played by Dwayne Johnson, when he comes calling, a nemesis from the last film whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now promising immunity in exchange for Domâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s help. He wants Dom to nab a villain named Shaw (Luke Evans) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the snarly guy with the tank and the plane and

a huge military arsenal which is one little component short of wreaking total havoc. A reluctant Dom gets on board when he learns that Letty, his former love (Michelle Rodriguez) is working for Shaw. But wait ... wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t she dead? Well, actually sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s alive, but she has amnesia. Anyway, the game is on. Happily, amid all the noise, the races â&#x20AC;&#x201D; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a terrific one through the streets of downtown London â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the crashes and the outlandish stunts, there is some humor, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very welcome. Particularly funny are Tyrese Gibson as Roman and Chris â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ludacrisâ&#x20AC;? Bridges as Tej, Domâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s partners in crime. Also back for more adventures are the attractive duo of Han (Sung Kang) and Gisele (Gal Gadot); Gina Carano is a newcomer as an agent whose fighting skills give Letty a run for her money. Not everyone gets out alive. As for the lucrative franchise, though, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more than alive and kicking, judging from the new filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overseas success. A post-credits sequence teases the upcoming seventh film. In the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fast & Furiousâ&#x20AC;? universe, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just international criminals who rake it in.

or more than a decade, the Kauaâ&#x20AC;&#x2DC;i Polynesian Festival has paid tribute to the indigenous island cultures of the southern Pacific. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun continues through Sunday at Vidinha Stadium in Lihuâ&#x20AC;&#x2DC;e. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in our 12th year,â&#x20AC;? Festival Director Kapu Kinimaka-Alquiza said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People can expect to have a great weekend.â&#x20AC;? Presented by the Kamanawa Foundation, the 2013 Kauaâ&#x20AC;&#x2DC;i Polynesian Festival kicks off at noon today and features Tahitian, Maori, Samoan and Hawaiian entertainment, Polynesian arts and crafts, solo and group dance competitions, food booths, workshops, a farmers market, Hawaiian games and much more for the entire family. There will be about 30 arts and craft vendors and five food booths on site to choose from. One of the most popular festival events is the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Polynesian Experience,â&#x20AC;? a hands-on cultural craft and dance activity beginning at noon

today and Saturday. Learn fire-making, spearthrowing, how to husk a coconut and weaving techniques using the fronds of the coconut and hala tree, according to the event website. Professionals will also teach participants how to dance the hula, make a ti-leaf lei and tie a pareau â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or sarong â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in the Polynesian style. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Polynesian Experience is one of the things that people should attend if they havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been to the festival,â&#x20AC;? Kinimaka-Alquiza said. Additional events include a trio of performances by Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2DC;ahu contemporary group FAB 4, Maori action and poi ball dances of Aotearoa, a Tahitian dance exhibition and fire dance competitions. Kinimaka-Alquiza said incorporating the different Polynesian cultures into one weekend-long event was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;brainstorming ideaâ&#x20AC;? of a small festival committee back in 2000. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been very successful,â&#x20AC;? she said. The Polynesian Festival runs from 11:30 a.m. to 9

p.m. today, 11:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Saturday and 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $10 per day or $25 for a 3-day pass. Dance participants and children under age 5 are admitted for free. Workshops cost $25 each. Tickets can be purchased online, at the door or at select island retailers, including Deli and Bread, Progressive Expressions, Scottyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Music, Western Motors, Aloha Rainbow Screening, Larryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Music, Hula Girl Restaurant, Eggberts and Hanalei Surf Co.

he sights and smells of cut flowers and plants were not hard to find last weekend at the Kauaâ&#x20AC;&#x2DC;i Museum, where about 30 community members and visitors attended a talk story session with local haku lei maker Elvrine Chow. During the question and answer session, Chow spoke about her love for different types of leis and how she was first introduced to the art nearly three decades ago. She also shared tips on a wide variety of topics during her nearly one-hour talk, ranging from plant and flower gathering to traditional cultural practices. The museum then hosted a interactive demonstration following the talk in which attendees were given a chance to make their very own haku â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a crownlike lei that is worn around a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head â&#x20AC;&#x201D; using floral and plant elements hand-picked by Chow. The event, which facilitated by â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kauaâ&#x20AC;&#x2DC;i Storiesâ&#x20AC;? author Pamela Varma Brown, is a part of the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ongoing Author Series that is highlighting talented local writers. The next talk story session hosted by Brown will be held June 1 at the Kauaâ&#x20AC;&#x2DC;i Museum with Kumu Hula Leinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2DC;ala Pavao Jardin, who will talk about her journey as a hula instructor followed by a brief performance by some of her students.
