CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Over the past decades, the nation of Japan has produced innumerable artists who have pushed the boundaries of experimental music and performance (among other fields of expression).
In appreciation of these contributions, and as an aid to Japan in its time of need following the earthquake and tsunami of March 11th and the ensuing nuclear disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi plant, the Cincinnati based non-profit organization Art Damage, Inc. is throwing a tribute and benefit for the people Japan at 8:00 p.m. on June 11 at the Mockbee on Central Parkway in Fairview.
Over a dozen local and regional artists will perform covers of Japanese artists of their choice, including:
Uncle Dave Lewis covering Yoko Ono
Tim Schwallie... Keiji Haino
Hearts of Palm... Phew
Astral Heathens and the Arsenal Test... Taj Mahal Travelers
Robert Inhuman... M1DY
