Neil Young to Perform Oct. 30 for music conservancy

Neil Young will perform at a benefit for the Silverlake Conservatory of Music that Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea and Anthony Kiedis will host.

The organization announced Friday (Oct. 4)  that the event will take place Oct. 30 in Silverlake (Los Angeles), Calif. Red Hot Chili Peppers will also perform, according to The Associated Press,

Flea founded the Silverlake Conservatory of Music in 2001. It facilitates music education and offers music lessons and scholarships.

The RHCP bassist says in a statement that he’s “grateful” for all the help given to the organization. He adds that Young performing at the event “is the greatest blessing.”

USA Today writes: If you’ve got $2,000 lying around, or nine other friends that would be willing to split a $25,000 bill, then the Silverlake Conservatory of Music is your new BFF. So is Flea, who founded the school. To sweeten the deal, the RHCP guys recruited Neil Young to play.

Flea and fellow Red Hot Chili Pepper Anthony Keidis will host the benefit and proceeds will go toward building a new facility and beef up Silverlake’s 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 says 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! Yay!”

Music, dinner and a silent auction will take place and will feature donations from Marc Jacobs, Tony Hawk, Pearl Jam, Gucci and others. The event costs $2,000 per guest, and a 10-seat table is $25,000.

City and Colour to open Ottawa Fest-replace Neil & the Horse

The Ottawa Citizen has announced that City and Colour will replace Neil Young and Crazy Horse at the Ottawa Folk Festival on Sept. 4.

The Juno-winning band led by Canadian singer-songwriter Dallas Green has agreed to step into the headlining slot of the festival’s opening night, the newspaper writes.

Organizers had to scramble after losing Young, who cancelled his North American dates to give guitarist Frank “Poncho” Sampedro more time to heal after breaking his hand earlier this month.

“It’s definitely been a challenging week, but I’d say I’m very pleased that Dallas Green (City and Colour) could accommodate us on such short notice,” says festival executive/programming director Mark Monahan in a news release. “He’ll make a great opening night for the festival.”

Young’s tour mate, Patti Smith, will also perform, as originally scheduled, accompanied by her band.
