How to show your love for Japan

Are you sitting down? Seriously, I don’t want you to die of shock when I tell you…


Yes folks, you heard it here, breaking news, a little unlikely I know, but there you have it. For a few short hours this Friday, Geneva will join the ranks of New York, London and Berlin and become A City Where There Is Something To Do On Friday Night.

Geneva is really pulling out all the stops on this one – not only will there be bands, an auction, and general frivolity, but it’s all for a great cause – sending some love Japan’s way. Jam For Japan is not a confiture cook-a-thon but a series of live bands playing accross five different venues from 6pm this Friday, from which 10 percent of all profits will be donated to the Japanese Red Cross. In addition to proper bands, they’ll also be hosting jam sessions open to all musicians, which is an awesome excuse to get your Eddie Vedder on and take to the Pickwicks stage.

So pop on a kimono and get down to Pickwicks, The Clubhouse, 7Arts Bar, Mulligans and Shakers (yep, all the most reputable venues in town) to partake in some exhilaratingly un-Geneva-like fun!

Meanwhile, I’m really hoping that this one gets a spin.

By the way, the hot tip is that the Japanese Ambassador is going to make a cameo at The Clubhouse! Time for a round of sake shots!
