Rock group Level III takes it to another level - and other parties and entertainment

Just when you thought Hard Rock was on its deathbed, enter Level III. The local Hard Rock group performed this past Saturday at Fujiyama, located a few blocks out of Kadena's Gate 2, and gave new definition to the phrase "The Roof Is On Fire". The group had everyone in the place jumping up and down on cue, like they were rehearsing for Van Halen's video, Jump. Adding fuel to fire, Level III invited fellow musicians Ray and Leon from the rock group Eightball to join them on stage, kicking things into overdrive. Although this show was free, anticipate a cover charge of 500 to 600 when they perform at Fujiyama Mar. 5 and 6.

MCCS will sponsor "The Jam", a DJ competition for the month of March. Two turntables and a microphone - What! The island's best DJs will compete to see who has the skills. Even if you're not a DJ, come on out and enjoy the festivities. The event is scheduled for the following dates and locations: Mar. 5 at Camp Kinser, Mar. 12 at Camp Hansen, Mar. 19 at Futenma and Mar. 26 on Camp Foster. See you at the Jam. I'll be there, I'll be there.

Saturday, Mar. 6, Banana Jamaica will host a night of Hip-Hop, R&B and Reggae. Special guest, DJ Satoru, from Future of Funk, and an elite group of DJs, will provide the hottest in sounds. Doors open promptly at 11 p.m., admission is 1,500 or $14.00 and ladies get in free before 12 a.m.

Setting things off in Naha on March 13, the Bump located on Kokusai Street right next to Tower Records, will also host a night of Hip-Hop, R&B and Reggae. DJ Satoru will again be the guest DJ spinning the wax on the 1 and 2's. Admission is 2,000 for men and 1,500 for women. The Bump isn't normally open to Americans, so if you can make it, go. The last time I was at this club, a friend of mine was the guest performer, and we didn't leave until 5 a.m. Mark this one in your daily planner - now!

This week's CD pick is Laface Recording artist TLC. After a five-year hiatus, the ladies are back with a hot new CD entitled "Fanmail". The first single released from the CD, "No Scrubs", finds the trio flipping the script on the fellas. With chorus lines like: " I don't want no scrub/ A scrub is a guy that can't get no love from me/ Hanging out the passenger side of his best friends ride/ Trying to holla' at me", I'm sure all women can relate to that. Other tracks worth checking out are: "Silly Ho", "My Life", "If They Knew", "I'm Good At Being Bad", "Lovesick", "Automatic" and "Don't Pull Out On Me Yet", which sounds surprisingly similar to their previous hit single, "Red Light Special." This is TLC's third disc as a group, and judging from the sounds of things, it definitely won't be their last. Once you insert "Fanmail" in your CD player, you may never want to pull it out.

That's everything on this week's menu. Until next week, feed the ear hole lightly - Ya' Heard. E-mail me with any entertainment news at djparlay@hotmail.com
