In many ways, last Sunday’s Spinners concert at the Kahilu Theatre felt like a throwback to the “old days.” Ushers hustled folks to their seats minutes before showtime. The bar in the lobby reopened. And recent pandemic capacity restrictions were lifted, which enabled the venue to sell out, an event that hasn’t happened in over two years.
