Yoko Ono, Sonic Youth Headline Miller Theatre Japan Benefit Concert




    Yoko Ono brings her PLASTIC ONO BAND and guest stars like Eric Clapton and Sonic Youth to BAM.

    Even more artists are stepping up to support relief efforts in Japan.

    This Sunday, avant-garde jazz impresario John Zorn hosts the “Japan Benefit Concert” at Columbia University’s Miller Theatre and the lineup is impressive: Yoko Ono, Sonic Youth, and Mike Patton are a few of the boldface names.

    “The tragedy and devastation is really overwhelming,” Zorn says on the Miller Theatre website. “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.”

    All proceeds benefit the Japan Society’s Earthquake Relief Fund. Tickets are currently sold out, but Miller Theatre’s site offers a helpful roster of other ways to pledge support for the Japan relief efforts.
