The eighth annual MusiCares MAP Fund benefit concert will honor Alice In Chains co-founder Jerry Cantrell and certified interventionist and Sony/ATV Music Publishing Senior Consultant Neil Lasher at Club Nokia in Los Angeles on May 31. Hosted by Steve-O, the evening will feature a special performance by Alice In Chains. If that wasn’t enough, freaking Moby will DJ live during dinner! All proceeds will benefit the MusiCares MAP Fund, which provides members of the music community access to addiction recovery treatment regardless of their financial situation. Additional artists will be announced shortly.
Cantrell will be honored with the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award for his dedication and support of the MusiCares MAP Fund, and for his commitment to helping other addicts with the addiction and recovery process. Lasher will be the recipient of MusiCares’ From the Heart Award for his unconditional friendship and dedication to the mission and goals of the organization.
Alice in Chains, featuring guitarist/vocalist Cantrell, guitarist/vocalist William DuVall, bassist Mike Inez, and drummer Sean Kinney, recently finished 14 months of touring off their 2009 album Black Gives Way to Blue, which was certified gold. They are currently working on their next album, but are making a special one-night appearance for the MusiCares foundation.
General admission seats are available on Ticketmaster, and cost $45-$150.
