Musicians host benefit for Japan

More than 50 Twin Cities musicians are lining up to raise money for the American Red Cross, in an effort to help out those suffering in Japan from what feels like an unending disaster (earthquake, followed by tsunami, followed by radiation leaks). Tonight and tomorrow night, from 5pm – midnight, folks like Martin Devaney, Dan Newton, Curtiss A, Larry Long and Arne Fogel will play 20 minutes sets back to back at Rudolph’s BBQ in south Minneapolis. The musicians are playing for free; a $10 donation per person is suggested. All net proceeds will go to the American Red Cross.

The line-up so far looks like this:
