Big Island Gets Hit Hard by Island Wide Black Out

Fat Freddy’s Drop” was the headliner at last nights concert at KB Extreme over in Kona.  They are from New Zealand and considered one of the top groups over there right now.

They were just in San Francisco the other day and they had just gotten off the plane so I didn’t want to bother them for an interview or anything.  I got a chance to ask someone who was working with the hotel if that’s who they were and they confirmed it.
