In the aftermath of the tsunami, over 150,000 people
have died and 5 million more are homeless in Asia. This event is but a small community offering to
sustain ourselves and to try to help others far away.

Low, low, way east, east side...

Tix are 15 bucks and make reservations @ (212) 340-1962

Here are the particulars from
*AWESOME* Kira Onodera:

"The Crease Question" is about an hour long, with a lovely opening act by my pal Florence Yoo. A very talented singer, songwriter, comic and all around cool Asian chic that rocks! My stuff is kind of sad and funny and all written and performed by me! A little help from Ali Costine and Luis Vega on my ranting and raving piece about working in the restaurant biz..Bring your friends, please. There is only one woman in this darn thing, I need to fill the seats.

From Florence: I've seen excerpts from the show -- it's HOT ! HOT! HOT! Beautifully written/performed and directed by the multi-talented ONODERA! Come on by, yo! Muchas gracias in advance, Amigas/Amigos!

to write a review


60's sound with modern twist...!
Very experimental I would say.
Yoo really knows how to cheer people up with her chat between songs.
I laughed from ear to ear. I especially liked "Mom & Dad"
Very funny indeed. The lyrics on the songs are very honest and open from the heart. I think that's very brave.
The instruments on this CD sound like a 60's rock album, but the lyrics and Florence Yoo's voice has a modern twist to it with much humor to make the listener laugh with enjoyment at the funny things in life. I highly recommend this CD for anyone who likes 60's music but with today's touch and feel type of attitude.
