Music venues usually smell of stale beer. A good act, though, can take that stiff air, charge it, and leave you amped. But even so, when you walk away at the end of the night, all you are left with are some residual tingles, deaf ears and a good memory. Well, now you can have all that but leave something concrete behind as well.
Millions have either died or are left homeless in Burma and Sichuan as the result of natural disasters. You can now "help." Presented by AsianWeek and proudly sponsored by Hyphen & other organizations, "help" is a benefit concert organized by Bay Area artists to provide aid to the devastated regions in Burma and China's Sichuan province. Bring yourself. Bring your friends. Not only do you get to rock out to American Idol semifinalist Paul Kim, Burmese-American songstress Natalise and a Hyphen favorite, Mud, but rest assured that when you leave, you're also leaving with more than just a memory for yourself.
