Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist, "Flea," explains the Silverlake Conservatory of Music fundraiser as "Everyone coming together to do something cool.” This year the annual event will be held on September 29th. It benefits the L.A. music education and community outreach center that Flea co-founded in 2001. The musician describes his conservatory as a great community outlet, where people have forged lifelong friendships. He told Rolling Stone, " I run into young adults. [They’re] like, ‘Hey, man, I went to your school for eight years.’ And they often relate to me not just how much fun it was for them to play music and what an important part of their life it was." K.D. Lang, Lindsay Buckingham and the Red Hot Chili Peppers are among the list of performers set for the event. But the best prize is a fun auction item. One fan can win a night with Flea to see the Lakers play the Spurs. Flea says he's been a basketball fan since childhood, adding "or me it’s honestly like going to church, you know. I just see basketball as one of the most profoundly transcendent aspects of the culture in our country… I imagine it’s kind of like going to the ballet for people that really love ballet or something. I just love hoops."
