Halloween happenings

Halloween is still a couple of days away, but that hasn't stopped Honolulu from getting into the ghoulish party spirit for much of the past week.

The action ramps up tonight, with plenty of options available tomorrow and Sunday as well. Of everything that's planned, however, the most intriguing party to this columnist is tomorrow night's "Warholloween" at Crazybox, the nightclub inside the new Waikiki EDITION hotel.

Listen to hipsters gush about how Crazybox is the "BEST THING EVERRRRRRRRRRR" to happen in the local nightlife scene, and connections between the club's design/decor and the legendary artist/filmmaker quickly come up in the conversation. EDITION developer Ian Schrager's ties to the old school New York City party scene also lend a definite air of credibility both to the space, and the steady crush of people trying to get inside the last few weeks proves the room has had an immediate impact on Oahu's nocturnal landscape.

"I'm surprised most people don't get the obvious Warhol/Factory references," said Crazybox resident DJ ESKAE via e-mail. "Well, we decided to do 'Warhollween,' a Factory-inspired dance party."

To help keep folks in a New York state of mind, the EDITION is flying out DJ Stretch Armstrong, pictured above, to spin alongside ESKAE and fellow resident DJs Compose and Anit.

"The man is one of a few DJs (who) are recognized figures in both the hip-hop and dance music (worlds)," said ESKAE.

To help get people in the mood for tomorrow's party, ESKAE also shared a link to a 2007 mix by Armstrong. Click here to download.
