Red Hot Chili Peppers, System Of A Down and Mike Watt will play a Nov. 15 benefit concert for the Silverlake Conservatory of Music and the Warschaw Center for Prostate Cancer Research at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. The show will be held at the Palladium in Los Angeles; tickets go on-sale Thursday (Nov. 13) via Ticketmaster.

A limited number of tickets are available for auction via a special Ticketmaster Web site beginning tomorrow and ending Wednesday. The bidding starts at $110 per ticket.

Last month, Pearl Jam held a benefit in Santa Barbara, Calif., for the Warschaw Center, at which Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante made a guest appearance.

To raise additional funds for the Silverlake Conservatory, Chili Peppers bassist Flea has designed boxer shorts, t-shirts and greeting cards, which will be on sale at the concert. The items can also be purchased from Angelwear.com.

As previously reported, the Peppers will on Nov. 18 release their "Greatest Hits" CD/DVD via Warner Bros., as well as the DVD "Live at Slane Castle." One of the new tracks on the album, "Fortune Faded," is available on two separate import singles, augmented with three previously unreleased cuts.

System Of A Down is at work on the follow-up to 2001's "Toxicity," and will begin recording early next year. Watt has Nov. 28-29 gigs lined up with Banyan, which also features Jane's Addiction drummer Stephen Perkins and guitarist Nels Cline.
