EDIT: Special Guest Adam Ant has just been confirmed! OMFGASM!
I am proud to confirm that I am indeed playing the We Love Japan earthquake appeal show at London's Relentless Garage in Highbury, along with the legendary DJ Jack Nimble. This is evidently a very magical show, as I decided a few weeks ago that it was my aim to play that very venue this Summer, and a week later I got a phone-call asking if I want to do it, on the very same day I was trying to think of a way I could raise some money for Japan. Mental, huh?
We have an exciting line-up of new and established acts with a very Japanese edge. Most of our bands originate from Japan originally and are now based in London including iMMa, No Cars and Kuaigora. We also have a set from Akira The Don and DJ sets from Japan Underground and the fabulous Mr Iain Lee of Absolute Radio and the 11 O'Clock Show.
In addition to the live performance we will also be running a Karoake Club thanks to Onboard Karaoke, please Cosplay Portrait have a booth and there will be a raffle with several high value prize packs on offer. Our aim is to fill the venue and raise over £6,000 for the appeal on the night. Every ticket sale helps us get closer to that figure. With your support we can make it.
Every penny from the show will go to the Japan Society Tohoku Earthquake Relief Fund to help rebuild Japan after the events of 11 March. Doors open at 7pm. Strictly over 14s, under 16s with an adult / Photo ID required
Get that? Good. I am really excited about doing this, and I want you all to come and party with us. And let me know in the comments what songs you wanna hear! I am in a requestful mood.
