A night of live music, comedy and karaoke will be hitting the Relentless Garage in Highbury on Saturday 2nd of April in aid of the victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

Some of the most promising London-based Japanese musicians will take part in the evening hosted by comedian and presenter Iain Lee of Absolute Radio. Japanese celebrities will offer their support at the event via exclusive video messages to show their gratitude as well as offer encouragement to those doing their own fund-raising activities.

The talent performing on the night includes half-Japanese songstress iMMa, who, when not rocking her solo project, can be found on stage providing backing vocals for the BRIT award winning popstar Mika. There is also the cheeky all girl pop-rock outfit No Cars from Japan, experimental classical quartet Kuaigora, video game junkie MC and DJ act Akira the Don and more. Plus, some of the best tunes Japan has to offer from the pop, rock and dance genres will be DJed by Iain Lee and the Japan Underground team.

Additional to the main 600+ capacity room is the venue's mini-bar which will be transformed in to a Japanese style karaoke booth, kitted out with the latest karaoke machine direct from Tokyo thanks to Onboard Karaoke, with a whopping 600,000 songs to choose from in English and several other languages. There will also be a purikura (Japanese photo booth) service available, raffles, auctions and other activities to make as much money as possible for charity.

All proceeds from the evening will go to the Japan Society Tohoku Earthquake Relief Fund (more information can be found here: http://www.japansociety.org.uk/earthquake/). The Japan Society has created this disaster relief fund to aid victims of the Tohoku earthquake. All the funds it receives will be distributed to organizations working to help people in the affected areas recover from the devastating effects of the earthquake and tsunami.

WE LOVE JAPAN is sponsored by:
HMV, MOMA, Manga Entertainment LTD, The Relentless Garage, We Love Anime, Uniqlo, NME, Japan Underground Onboard Karaoke, Cosplay Portrait, Nam co Bandai and Play for Japan.
