LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — California's Slightly Stoopid, will host their annual “420” celebration in their home-state this year at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, CA on Wednesday, April 20th, 2011.
The band recently announced they will be donating their proceeds to Music for Relief in support of Save the Children’s emergency response efforts to the multiple disasters in Japan.
Additionally, the band will contribute a song to Music for Relief’s “Download to Donate for Japan" campaign, which includes an exclusive and growing catalog of songs available at www.downloadtodonate.org.

“Anytime the world goes through a disaster of this magnitude, we all have to pull together. We are just happy to be in the position to lend a helping hand to support the relief efforts in Japan,” the band said in a statement.
