Stephen Stills' new blues band The Rides will headline the latest benefit concert for Cal State Northridge-based radio station KCSN FM (88.5) on Nov. 3 at the university's Valley Performing Arts Center.
In addition to Stills' band, which includes guitarist Kenny Wane Shepherd and keyboardist Barry Goldberg, singer-songwriter Lucinda Williams will perform along with rising Los Angeles musician L.P., reflecting the station’s programming mix of music from established stars and novice musicians across a broad range of genres.
Two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Stills has described The Rides as “the blues band of my dreams.” Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers and Jackson Browne headlined previous benefits for the noncommercial station.
Presale of tickets to KCSN listeners begins Thursday and general sales start Saturday through Ticketmaster and at the Valley Performing Arts Center box office.
