Relief for Japan

We’d be remiss not to post about the current global crisis after Friday’s severe earthquake in Japan. Music-related charities would usually be our suggestion – the Lady Gaga-designed bracelets, for example, or the auctioned items of Blink-182 and Linkin Park- but this goes well beyond the music world. And newly-formed relief efforts sometimes don’t yield the results needed.

Our thoughts are with the people affected during this time, and we urge everyone to give money to a well-established charity, where your donations will be used most effectively. The Japan Earthquake efforts from Direct Relief, AmeriCares, and International Rescue Committee are all great options.

Tonight he’ll be in Brooklyn; see the full list of dates after the jump.
