Members of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, System Of A Down, Audioslave and Slipknot will take part in a benefit concert for striking Southern California grocery store workers. Tickets for tonight's (Dec. 18) show at the Roxy Theater in Hollywood went on sale yesterday via Ticketmaster and are completely sold out.

The bill will feature Chili Peppers bassist Flea, System Of A Down leader Serj Tankian, Audioslave (and ex-Rage Against The Machine) members Tom Morello and Brad Wilk, Slipknot's Corey Taylor and Phantom Planet. Comedian/actor Janeane Garafalo will also take part, as well as Boots Riley (the Coup) and Lester Chambers.

Morello and Tankian have a history of activism. The duo formed the non-profit political organization Axis of Justice to energize music fans "around issues of peace, human rights and economic justice," according to the organization's Web site

The pair also hosts a monthly radio show that airs on public station KPFK Los Angeles. Past broadcasts are archived and available for streaming at the station's Web site.
