The sixth annual MusiCares® MAP Fund® benefit concert will celebrate Women In Recovery and salute former first lady Betty Ford and the Betty Ford Center at Club Nokia in Los Angeles on Friday, May 7.

In addition, the MusiCares MAP Fund offers free aftercare group weekly meetings across the country.  

The evening will feature special performances by Charlotte Caffey and Kathy Valentine (the Go Go's) with Leah Randi (former bassist for Pink), Patty Schemel (former drummer for Hole) and vocalist Annabella Lwin (Bow Wow Wow); Beth Hart with GRAMMY® -winning guitarist Slash (Guns N' Roses, Velvet Revolver); Exene (X); Corey Parks (Nashville Pussy) with GRAMMY-winning artist Lemmy Kilmister (Motörhead) and GRAMMY-winning drummer Matt Sorum (Guns N' Roses, Velvet Revolver); and Linda Perry (4 Non Blondes) with Paul Ill (Alicia Keys, Courtney Love, Tina Turner), John Perry (Courtney Love, Linda Perry), Kellii Scott (Failure, Year Long Disaster), and Peter Thorn (Chris Cornell, Don Henley).  Samantha Ronson will DJ live during dinner in memory of the late DJ AM, who DJed for the event last year.
