There’s a swell on the horizon. Listen closely and you’ll hear it…AUDIO INVASION 2012.

In what’s Honolulu’s first big concert of the year, fanboys and gals will congregate at the Aloha Tower Waterfront under the celestial sound waves of heavy-on-the-indie bands: Cage The Elephant, Best Coast and Mariachi El Bronx (while kissing Foster the People “bye”). Beam us up, baby!

Get to know the guys and one girl in this Weekly after school roundup of their music, moods and melodies.

Read, then rip out our profile on Best Coast and clip it to the inside of your high school locker. Plaster Cage The Elephant and Mariachi El Bronx on the walls of your tiny bedroom apartment. Fold it up into a fortuneteller to find out which Foster The People band mate could’ve been your BF. Whatever prepares you for the big show on February 8.
