– The organizers of j-Summit New York announce the lineup for their
July concert. The concert will take place on Sunday, July 3 at The
Bowery Electric (327 Bowery between Second and Third Streets) in New
York. Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 at the door for guests over 21
years old. The price includes one drink ticket. Guests 18 to 20 pay $13
in advance and $16 at the door, including one drink ticket for a
non-alcoholic beverage.

J-Summit New York is a monthly concert series that introduces
audiences to exciting bands of all genres. One of the groups playing the
July 3rd event is Ten, an innovative trio that combines the traditional
sounds of the koto (a Japanese stringed instrument) against a backdrop
of hard-rock bass guitar and drums. Also performing are blues, pop, and
rock singer/guitarist Yujin Amano; Yuki and Cuties, who sing in an
alternative, jazz, and J-pop style peppered with a traditional Japanese
flavor; and the electronic pop of singer Reiko4D.

The concert is also a showcase of local dance talent, including
Nobuya Nagahama, a dancer and choreographer who appeared on the show So
You Think You Can Dance. Also performing are Michael Feigenbaum, FNC,
Sachiko & Naoko, Torumarin and Yuriko Miyake.

Tokyo Circus and Clown ToTo the juggling clown will ham it up in their comedy routines.

The organizers of j-Summit New York will again have a donation box
for Japan earthquake and tsunami relief, just as they have each month
since the March 11 disaster. All donations and partial proceeds from the
event will go to the Consulate General of Japan in New York.

For the show on July 3, doors open at 5:30 p.m. with the concert
running from 6:00 p.m. until midnight. For the first time since the
j-Summit New York events have been held at The Bowery Electric, the
first floor bar will be open from 9:00 p.m. until 3:00 a.m.
