Benefit Concert For Burma And Sichuan

Wednesday, July 30, 2008

Just in case you didn't know (been popping up at different blogs like AAM and Hyphen) there's going to be a benefit concert down at Glas Kat Nightclub which sounds like it should be pretty cool, and of course is for a good cause:

Just a reminder for folks in the Bay Area... This weekend, check out a cool event for a good cause. Over twenty community and professional organizations are partering up with AsianWeek to present help: Benefit Concert for Burma and Sichuan, Saturday, August 2 at Glas Kat Nightclub in San Francisco. Watch a promotional video for the event here.

The event will feature American Idol semifinalist Paul Kim, Burmese-American singer Natalise, and local band Mud, performing a rare acoustic set. All net proceeds from the concert will be donated to UMCOR to provide food, water, and temporary shelter in the most devastated areas of Burma and Sichuan.
