Nahko’s Bringing the Medicine to Hilo Palace
by Kristin Hashimoto
“It’s like the Rolling Stones are coming,” said Palace Theater Office Manager Morgen Bahurinsky.
This morning some lucky person got the last pre-sale ticket for the Nahko and Medicine for the People concert on Dec. 12.
“We’re getting calls from the mainland from people flying in just to see them,” said Bahurinsky. Four hundred tickets have been sold and the remaining 100 tickets will be available at a first-come, first-served basis on Wednesday at 6 p.m.
Tickets went on sale on Nov. 5; by Nov. 10, Bahurinsky was turning people away and advising them to come early on concert night.
Bahurinsky is expecting a long wait for those people that waited to get tickets. Plan on waiting a long while to score one of 100 left at the Palace Theater; that is, if you get a ticket at all.
Here’s the lineup: Nahko & Medicine For The People; then Nahko’s Grand Piano Set; Dustin Thomas; Jon Wayne, from Jon Wayne & The Pain, with Ben Suchy; Infinite Radio and finally Silver Jackson.
Nahko is a native of Oregon with a mixed heritage of Apache, Filipino and Puerto Rican. His music transforms and resounds with many spiritual truth-seekers.
Nahko’s diverse experiences lend themselves to his musical sound, which can be delivered with piano, guitar, drums, flute and voice. His lyrical life questing can be uplifting and brutal.
