John will perform to benefit Flea's Silverlake Conservatory of Music next Wednesday, along with Flea, of course, Tracy Chapman (who's in the studio), jazz musician Charlie Haden and Grant-Lee Phillips (the guy behind Grant Lee Buffalo). For a fundraiser, tickets are fairly reasonable, $200 for one, $350 for two.
The first annual Hullabaloo will raise money to help students music lessons. Thanks to my British mate for that bit of news.
In other John news, he was nominated for a LA Weekly Music award.
