.11.11 as it is being called was the worst earthquake in 100‘s of years and was so powerful it moved the earth 6.5’.

Japan the Golden eagle of the Pacific Rim is devasted as its wings have been clipped by tsunamis and a potential nuclear disaster.

Who better to lead the call for help  but Yoko and Sean not only to raise funds for the overwhelmed country but also to create awareness as so many are displaced and the humble people of Japan are in need.

What better way then the universal gift of music.

Yoko Ono, Sean Lennon, Sonic Youth, Mike Patton, Cibo Matto, Mephista, Marc Ribot, Uri Caine, Aleph Trio, John Zorn, host

More than a dozen innovative artists at the intersection of indie rock, contemporary jazz, and avant-garde performance will come together at Miller Theatre to present a benefit concert to support recovery efforts in Japan. “The tragedy and devastation is really overwhelming,” says John Zorn, who has organized and will host the evening. “I’ve always felt a strong personal connection to Japan, and I’m just glad to be able to do my part to help. It should be an amazing night.”
