Happy Birthday UDHR: 70 Years Old

7:30pm
¥1,000 (on the door)

Concert: “Happy Birthday, Universal Declaration of Human Rights, 70 years old today!”
Looking for something to do in Tokyo in December? Then come along to the Amnesty International Rock Night and celebrate with us 70 years of the Universal Human Rights Declaration!

The night will feature live music by a variety of talented local artists and a raffle with absolutely amazing prizes to win!

Tickets are only a suggested donation of ¥1,000 and are available at the door. All proceeds from the event will support Amnesty International Japan.

Main Act: Moonshots
Moonshots music is a powerful blend of hard-driving roots rock, blues and country, with traces of funk, latin and reggae sounds. The band has released two studio albums: ‘Ten Year Testimonial’ (2010) and ‘Pieces Falling’ (2015) and maintained a regular performing schedule over the past 18 years. The Moonshots continue to rock the clubs and live houses of Tokyo, filling dance floors with their ‘feel good’ grooves and high energy live shows.

Opening Act: Kevin Gray (Unplugged)
AITEN is pleased to announce that the velvet voice of Kevin Gray, lead singer of KEV GRAY & THE GRAVY TRAIN, will kick off the live music at the “Happy Birthday, UDHR!” Amnesty International Japan benefit concert. Following the band’s 2017 world tour—performing their award-winning blend of jazz, lounge, folk, gospel, blues and bossa nova—Kevin is kindly taking time from their busy three-album recording schedule to support Amnesty International.
