The White Rabbit
The People Now
If you’re at a loss for what to do the next couple of weekends, consider supporting some events geared toward raising relief money for Japan. Head over to Club Motor on Friday, May 13 for a slew of local talent including Pretty Enemy, The Crying Spell, Unhailoed, Windowdogs, Elbow Coulee, Sicarii, Sending Signals and members of Dreams Jaded. Attendees can also bid on a lunch/dinner date with a local artist. On Saturday, May 14, singer/songwriter Susan Osborn will perform at Seattle Unity Church with jazz pianist Overton Berry, bassist Jeff Davies, guitarist Andre Feriante, and Grammy-winning multi-instrumentalist Nancy Rumbel. The concert will include translated versions of popular Japanese music (done by Osborn herself) and original music from each performer. Admission to the show is by donation, with all proceeds going directly to the residents of Sendai. For a hip-hop flair, Blue Shoes Media and Sportin’ Life Records are hosting a fundraiser on Sunday, May 15 at The White Rabbit in Fremont with performances by Steelo, Black Stax, Ayo, and SK. All proceeds will benefit the American Red Cross. Next Saturday, May 21, Seattle-based alternative rock band The People Now will perform at the University District Street Fair (a free two-day affair) and sponsor a Japan Earthquake & Pacific Tsunami Relief booth at the event, with proceeds going to the American Red Cross.
