Rhonda's Kiss, which has become an annual benefit, took place at the El Rey to a sold out crowd with Weezer as the headliner. All proceeds from the concert went to the Cedars-Sinai Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute.
The evening started with all-star band the Hellcat Saints, which includes Dave Kushner (Velvet Revolver), Scott Shriner (Weezer), Joey Castillo (Queens of the Stone Age) and Chester Bennington (Linkin Park). Along with the Hellcat Saints were a few special guests: Juliette Lewis, Dave Navarro (Jane's Addiction), Brad Wilk (Rage Against the Machine) and Mark McGrath (Sugar Ray).
Before Weezer took the stage, Johnny Depp was presented an award by Rhonda's Kiss founders Kyle and Marc Stefanski for his contributions to cancer patients. The show ended with one-hour set from Weezer.
