THE long holiday weekend pushed back some event announcements, and there is other entertainment news of note this week:
» The Wonder Girls, a Korean pop act once scheduled for June 25 and 26 at Pipeline Cafe, was postponed from those dates because one of the girls had a death in the family. The concerts are now back on and set for July 16 and 17.
These concerts feature the five female teen performers, who have opened for the Jonas Brothers and are now on their first American headlining tour, along with their mentor-manager, J.Y. Park, billed as the most successful musician-entrepreneur in Asia. Tickets are $32 to $150 (for a meet-and-greet package), available at the Pipeline box office, at www.pipelinecafehawaii.com, or by calling (877) 714-7668 ((877) 71-GROOV).
