Kunming musicians come together for earthquake benefit tonight

By in News on

A diverse and talented collection of local musicians will be donating their time and talents tonight at Speakeasy Bar to assist in the Wenchuan earthquake relief effort, with all proceeds from the 20-yuan admission fee to be donated to the Chinese Red Cross.

The show starts at 8:00 pm and is co-organized by Speakeasy Bar and GoKunming. A representative of the Chinese Red Cross will be visiting the benefit at 10:30 to collect the door takings. Speakeasy Bar will also donate 30% of the bar takings from the evening.

Performers scheduled to appear tonight include: Co Op Sol, Zhu Xiaolong, JP, Li Fan, People's Rhythm, Nevada Lundemo, Kat & Colin, Synthatron and Kris Ariel. The 20-yuan admission fee includes one complimentary bottle of Yanjing beer.

GoKunming thanks Speakeasy Bar and tonight's performers for their help in organizing this event with just a few days' notice. We hope that any of our readers who have yet to contribute to the earthquake recovery effort come by to check out some good music for a good cause.

For those who cannot make the benefit show, please consider donating directly to the Chinese Red Cross.
