A little over 10 years ago Mike Licata, who had just moved to Honolulu to open NextDoor, went on a hike with long time DJ friends Greg “DJ G-Spot” and new friend Jason “DJ Quiksilva”, to discuss a mid-week event that could change the way people went out in Honolulu. Having recently come from Las Vegas via Los Angeles, Mike had come from an electronic music background with his producer project Digital Assassins, but always had a passion for the 80s new wave scene, and wanted to do something different. G-SPOT called Ann DJ Nocturna who had the FRI & SAT 6-9pm slots at UH College Radio KTUH 90.1 respectively, and the team was formed.

The open night in town was Wednesdays at NextDoor, and the night became known as Acid Wash. Acid Wash jeans were popular in the 80s. Mike and G-Spots vision wasn’t fully embraced for nearly a year however, a small marketing budget and the obstacle of getting people to come out on a Wednesday proved difficult, but the team pushed forward to a core group of 20-30 people that first year. Then for the One Year Anniversary, Mike came up with the idea of the Valentine’s Day 80’s Prom, and Wednesday’s wouldn’t be the same. The marketing budget increased, ACID WASH got write ups from Honolulu Weekly, and Star Advertiser, and the word was out… Hundreds of people found their way Downtown every Wednesday!

ACID WASH had some very special guest DJ’s over its tenure including but not limited; Andy Rourke from The Smiths, Daniel Ash from Bauhaus/ Love and Rockets, Jerry Casale from DEVO. Also, House music legends; King Britt, Donald Glaude, Jimmy Van M, Superstar DJ Keoki and a live performance from Mt Sims. Wednesdays Acid Wash Night was also fortunate enough to have the Nocturnal Sound Krew guys flex their amazing abilities for Acid Wash from time to time.

Over the years Acid Wash was at NextDoor, the Living Room, SOHO, a few nights at Indigo and then back to NextDoor at the end. It had run its course, some might say even overstayed its welcome a tad, but so it goes in the nightlife scene. “It was the best night out in Honolulu for many years. A place you went to have fun, listen to music, meet up with friends and smile.” Licata says, “We got the gang back together for one night, so I hope to see some of the old faces again on February 12th.”

Stay tuned for more information.

Born in Brixton, England, David Robert Jones also known as David Bowie was the iconic English singer, songwriter, painter, and actor, the genre-gender-bending performer whose persistent innovations and personal reinventions transformed him into a number of alter egos. He was a multi-talented musical genius who ruled the music industry for over five decades. As a visual artist he pushed the boundaries with his provocative style and fashion. With his driven passion to create, he wrote some of the most well-written songs and lyrics the world has ever known. He sold an estimated 140 million records worldwide. He was awarded nine platinum album certifications, eleven gold and eight silver, and released ten number-one albums in the UK. In the US, he received five platinum and seven gold certifications. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996.

He remained musically active until his death on January 10, 2016 at the age of 69 just two days after the release of the beautiful and darkest final album, Blackstar. WE LOVE YOU DAVIE BOWIE ! YOU WILL TRULY BE MISSED !

Thank you for your continued support and see you there !
