Here’s a round-up of upcoming local fundraising efforts and benefit events: Capitol Hill hotspot Chop Suey will host a “Pray for Japan” music event this Sunday, April 10; Raise funds for Tsunami relief and celebrate the one-year anniversary of Dumb Eyes/Unicorn’s monthly kaleidoscopic freak-out “Penetration” next Thursday, April 14; also on April 14 is the launch of “Help Japan with Art” at Boom Noodle Capitol Hill, a silent auction featuring 18 local artists and photographers who will donate 100% of sales proceeds to the Red Cross; local bands Pretty Enemy, UnHailoed, Elbow Coulee, Windowdogs and more will also come together May 13 at Seattle’s Club Motor for a Rock Relief Benefit Concert and lunch/dinner auction, where fans can bid on a meal to share with their favorite local artist. Additionally, Seattle vocalist Barbara Ireland is offering an exclusive free download of “Keep Breathing, Japan,” a beautiful ballad she wrote and recorded in response to the recent disasters, in exchange for donations to Japan relief.
