VIDEO: The Bar’s “Coming (To America)”


Kenny’s was a burger place located at the Kam Shopping Center in Kalihi. What was also in Kalihi: the childhood home of comedian Augie Tulba. You know what else was in Kalihi? The bowling alley known as Kamehameha Bowl, a/k/a Kam Bowl, where Chuck Furuya had some ox tail soup with some of his chef friends. What was also ALSO in Kalihi: Prometheus Brown and Bambu, who are united as The Bar, and together they’ve made an album called Barkada (Beatrock music) that will be released next week Tuesday. The album touches on their Filipino-ness, their roots in Hawai’i and Los Angeles, a Pacific and West Coast feel, and so much more. The album was self-proclaimed as a cross between “Nas’ Illmatic and Yall So Stupid’s Van Full of Pakistans.” Now, I’m not a big fan of Illmatic but the moment anyone compares themselves or their music to Van Full Of Pakistans, I’m sold 1000 times. “Coming (To America)” was produced by Seattle producer Justo, who you may know for his work as a member of The Physics.
