Neil Young to play at Red Hot Chili Peppers' Silverlake Conservatory benefit
The Oct. 30 event will feature performances by both iconic acts, as well as a silent auction with work from more than two dozen artists and donated items from Gucci, Tony Hawk, Jimmy Choo, Pearl Jam and many others.
Proceeds from the event will go to the music education non-profit organization, which Red Hot Chili Peppers' bassist Flea founded in 2001. In particular, the benefit will help the Conservatory's goal of purchasing a permanent facility, as well as expanding the scholarship program.
"Going into our 13th year of the Silverlake Conservatory of Music, flourishing with 700 students as a non-profit community music school, I could not be more grateful for all the people who have helped us out along the way," Flea said in a press release. "Having one of my favorite musicians Neil Young perform to help out the school is the greatest blessing! This is gonna be the funnest fundraiser ever! All of us working together, making L.A. a better city, and educating the kids!"
