JUST ADDED! MAY 27 - RT BENEFIT FOR JAPAN



Japan Benefit Concert - May 7

Richard Thompson
will be performing a benefit concert
on Saturday, May 7th at McCabe's Guitar Shop,
3101 Pico Blvd, Santa Monica, 90405.

Opening the show will be his special guest, premier English
concertina player and Northumbrian piper Alistair Anderson.

Tickets are $65 and can be obtained online only, starting
Monday, April 18 at 10AM on the McCabe's website.
Simply click the blue "buy tix" button next to the event description and follow the prompts. Tickets are will-call only and will be distributed at the venue on day of show just prior to performance.

All proceeds will be donated to the Otsuchi Relief Fund.

The town of Otsuchi, on the island of Honshu, was one of the hardest hit by the earthquake and tsunami of March 11th. The town was completely destroyed. Of a population of 16,000, 10,000 are missing (and presumed dead). Donations will go to basic survival needs - food, water, clothing, shelter.

Otsuchi is the sister city of Fort Bragg, CA - they are on the same latitude, share similar industries, and for 10 years have had exchange programs. We join with our friends in Fort Bragg in our deep sadness at the loss and destruction, and add our prayers, best wishes and donations in this desperate time. For anyone unable to attend who would like to make a donation, or for more information, please visit:
