Since November 2008, bassist of modern rock pioneers Deftones, Chi Cheng, has remained hospitalized in what doctors have called a “minimally conscious” state as the result of a car accident. Since the accident, the One Love for Chi organization has banded together to help raise funds to meet the growing costs of Cheng’s medical bills.
In 2010, One Love for Chi held the first benefit at Slidebar during NAMM weekend and created a truly memorable event. Part industry, part concert, all celebration, the night proved a sweeping success and has become the catalyst for an annual event dedicated to the ongoing recovery of Chi Cheng.
The 2011 installment will be held on January 14th & 15th. The bigger and better two-night engagement will feature performances from P.O.D., Dredg, Brian “HEAD’ Welch, Imani of The Pharcyde, Philm (featuring Dave Lombardo of SLAYER), The Accident Experiment, Southtown Generals, Eyes Set To Kill, Anew Revolution, and will be capped off by an all-star jam session featuring members of Anthrax, Atreyu, Papa Roach, Lit, Shinedown, and many more.
ONELOVEFORCHI.com is hosting an online auction via EBAY, with ALL proceeds going directly to Chi’s recovery. Packages of two (2) and four (4) tickets are available.
The Slidebar is located at 122 E. Commonwealth Ave. Fullerton, CA. 92832
