About this program

YokosoNews is going to live-stream the event "Aftershock LA".

This is a very last-minutes on-the-fly program. So don't expect us to be perfect :-p

"Aftershock LA" is a charity art event presented by Elemental Productions and Royal/T for Build Change, an international NPO to help re-build the community devasted by earthquakes.

Royal/T is a Japanese style cosplay cafe and art gallery located in Culver City, CA, USA. And many Japanese & Japanese American, Asian American and the other artists are donating their work for this benefit auction.

Although it's not 100% Japan-related event, many Japanese artists are involved. So it would be a very good opportunity to showcase Japanese art community in Los Angeles.


Event Detail

If you are close to downtown Culver City, you can come and enjoy the art, dance, music and fun. We will bring art, dance and entertainment, learn about earthquake, and help. And don't forget to be on our live streaming show!
