Downtown Musicians Come Together for Japan

In case you haven’t heard about this. 5 concerts for Japan in NYC!

From John Zorn:

We are all overwhelmed by the tragic devastation that has been happening in Japan and want to do what we can to help. These 5 benefit concerts came about because of people’s selfless generosity and open hearts—because of the power of friendship and love. Events of this kind do more than raise money, they bring people together and help us to heal. Please join us. —John Zorn
