Fresno’s creative scene is again helping with earthquake relief in Japan. On the heels of last weekend’s benefit concert at Starline, comes another jam-packed-with-local-talent concert. This one, dubbed “Downtown for Japan,” is at Fulton 55 on March 31 with MoFo Party Band, Strange Vine, Rademacher and many others performing.
The entire $10 cover charge goes to the Red Cross’ relief efforts in Japan. A few of the new Iron Bird Lofts-area businesses have a hand in organizing this, such as Faithful and True Tattoo Studio and Ignition Labs, who made the fresh poster you see below.
Meanwhile, the literary community is stepping up with a benefit of it’s own. This “Writers for Japan” event at Mr. Sushi on April 7 includes readings from the likes of David Mas Masumoto and Steven Church, among others.
