If you fall somewhere between geek and hippie, chances are you know about Burning Man, an annual event that defies description but falls somewhere in the neighborhood of “fully immersive, participatory art.” More than a few locals make the pilgrimage to the Black Rock Desert, including Ka Pilina, an official Hawaii regional group.
In preparation for this year’s festival, Ka Pilina is staging “Burnal Equinox,” an interactive art show, at Anna Bannana’s Saturday night.
Star-Bulletin reporter Gary Chun previews the event, promising “the display of art pieces shaped by and containing fire. There also will be drummers and musicians, a couple of deejays, the rock band Second Hand Sin, information booths and a suspension performance (no fire per se, but trained people hanging by hooks embedded in their skin).”
Details: Burnal Equinox with Ka Pilina at Anna Bannana’s (2440 S. Beretania St.), 8 p.m., Saturday, March 19. Admission is $10, 21 and over, $15 ages 18-20.
