We Love Japan Fundraiser

One for the wife, this. UK pop music legend Adam Ant will headline a night of live music, comedy and karaoke at the Relentless Garage in Highbury on Saturday 2nd April in aid of the victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

Some of the most promising London-based Japanese musicians will take part in the evening hosted by comedian and presenter Iain Lee of Absolute Radio. Japanese celebrities will offer their support at the event via exclusive video messages to show their gratitude as well as offer encouragement to those doing their own fund-raising activities. All proceeds from the evening will go to the Japan Society Tohoku Earthquake Relief Fund (more information can be found here). The Japan Society has created this disaster relief fund to aid victims of the Tohoku earthquake. All the funds it receives will be distributed to organizations working to help people in the affected areas recover from the devastating effects of the earthquake and tsunami.
