Yoko Ono, Sean Lennon, and others play Miller Theatre to benefit Japan earthquake victims
Sonic Youth, Yoko Ono, Sean Lennon, Cibo Matto—rarely has Columbia drawn such a star-studded cast of musician’s as for tonight’s Miller Theatre Concert to Benefit Japan Earthquake Relief. Ticket sales raised $33,000 for the cause, and the crowd was, if not elated, plenty satisfied. In a word, the night was a success.

At the end of their four-song set on March 27th at Columbia University's Miller Theater in New York, Sonic Youth played "Shaking Hell" from their 1983 album, Confusion Is Sex – a song about transgressive fantasies with a title that eerily captured the urgency of the night, a benefit for disaster relief in Japan. The first of five Concerts for Japan organized and curated by composer-saxophonist John Zorn, the sold-out Miller Theater show was headlined by Yoko Ono and the latest version of her Plastic Ono Band and included performances by guitarist Marc Ribot, ex-Faith No More vocalist Mike Patton with pianist Uri Caine, Zorn's Aleph Trio and a reunion of the Japanese art-pop duo Cibo Matto. The event raised over $33,000 from ticket sales, with all parties donating services, space and gear.
