Indeed. Lets not let our sudden (justified) outbreak of extreme happiness and nationalism let us forget that Japan still needs our help.

Jam For Japan

If you’re looking for a way to help our brothers and sisters in Japan, you should attend what promises to be one of the greatest break battles ever to happen in Olympia, WA. Starting at 7pm on Thursday, May 19th, DJ Slimrock will be rockin the royal lounge, for charity. Two on two elimination style battle with a $200 cash prize for the winner. Open floor all night, a judge’s showcase, and a few exhibitions. Jam for Japan is one of the few B Boy/Girl battles to actually be hosted in Olympia and it promises to be one the best.

I recently had a chance to contact Justin Weaver, one of the head organizers for the event.  He has been breakin for about a year and a half, and had just recently been introduced to the Evergreen scene where he “encountered some (of the) most amazing athletes” he’d ever seen.  Justin then went on to describe an amazing line up for the event:

Hosts/Judges/Performers: Josh Rizeberg, local MC Nicotine, KAOS DJ Luvva J, and Andy Tigerclaw AND of course, Carnage of the legendary Dance Broomz crew!

To get an idea of just how amazing this promises to be, check out this video of Carnage (first) and Andy Tigerclaw (second):

So, Thursday May 19th at 7pm, if you have a heart and $10, get yourself over to the royal lounge and watch one of the greatest B Boy battles ever to occur in Olympia.  And of course, drop some love and check out Jam for Japan on facebook.
