|Guerrero: Doin' his part for Japan.|
In just the latest of several Japan earthquake benefit shows to hit S.F., local skater/musical mastermind Tommy Guerrero
has announced plans with the food and drink lovers over at Umamimart
for a special event
at the Crescent Hotel's Burritt Room
. Guerrero, who recently dropped a new album of jazzy-folky-rock-y instrumental jamming called Lifeboats and Follies
, will bring a full band to the show, along with several DJs. All the proceeds from the event will go to Second Harvest Japan
, a Tokyo-based organization that's essentially Japan's first food bank.
The Gift of Food benefit
goes down next Tuesday, April 5, at the Burritt Room, with food from Peko-Peko Japanese catering and Sandbox Bakery. The cost is $40 advance/$45 door -- but remember, all of it goes to help provide food and essentials to the people of Northern Japan.
