A huge shout out to all the musicians who donated or performed in concerts for Architecture for Humanity in 2011. The amazing line up included Imogen Heap (twice), Blonde Redhead, Jack Black, Fat Freddys Drop, Tim Finn, The Nudge, Four Tet, Deerhunter, Interpol, Jamie Cullum, KT Tunstall, Amanda Palmer, Ben Folds, Amos Lee and Kaki King.
Benefit events include Songs for Christchurch concerts in Auckland and Austin, Texas; Live4Sendai and fundraising Albums 'Songs for Christchurch' and 'We are the Works in Progress'. We also had track contributions by Winter People and Ghostly International for some of our online videos.
Last year we were supported by one of the most amazing group of teens we've had the honor of collaborating with -- Youth Rock The Rebuild. 10 teen bands raised $28,000 for our work in Haiti in a single concert!
Last week we opened another school in Haiti partly funded by their efforts and our co-founder proudly wore his 'youth rock the rebuild' shirt at the dedication.
Special thanks to bubble tank, Barnaby Bennett, virgin unite, KungFu Nation and 4AD for additional support.
If you are in a band or are a musician who would like to collaborate with us, just contact us!
