The tsunami destruction and devastation in Japan has crept into most folks' soft spots. If you're like me, you're feeling small and wondering what you can really do to help. During the event Origami for Japan at Dharma Lounge, you can do your part. The party will feature hundreds of origami birds, as well as go-go geisha dancers, a lion dance, vocals from Christine Navarro (pictured) over house music from Jah Sun Rising and more. All door proceeds and a percent of bar sales will be donated to the Red Cross for aid in the relief efforts in Japan. Minimum $5 donation. 9 p.m. Dharma Lounge, 1440 S. Tryon St. 704-334-8336. www.dharmalounge.com.
