Joaquin Phoenix Friends and Family Concert at the Sunset Towers

I don't need much of an excuse to go to the Sunset Towers but Tuesday was a no brainer. My friend invited me up to hear from Heart Phoenix *(founder of The Peace Alliance and mother of Rain, Joaquin, River, Summer and Liberty) talk about her life's work and new act in the U.S. House and Senate under her charity The Peace Alliance. All of Heart's children including Joaquin Phoenix (no beard) were there to watch and be proud.

Casey Affleck and his wife Summer Affleck (aka Summer Phoenix) snuck in just before her mother Heart spoke  . . . the baby-sitter was late. I brought along my bff Bianca White who's been writing for the Truffle lately. We were just in time to hear her daughter Rain Phoenix playing some classic Neil Young covers to entertain the crowd before a series of speeches from Congressman Billy Scott (VA), Sheriff Lee Baca (L.A. County) and members of The Peace Alliance.

This was rather apropo because Rain's band Papercranes is about to release a record October 25th called Let's Make Babies In The Woodson through Manimal label; I hear they will also be playing at Soho House this month.

Her sisters Summer Phoenix and Liberty Phoenix and Flea (RHCP) watched on from there comfy couches on the Sunset Towers terrace who have all performed with Rain before. Anthony Kiedis sat alongside Flea.

Read the rest and dee more pics on The Daily Truffle.

The Peace Alliance will be furthering their cause September 21st when you can text "peace" to 738-674 to get some Ben & Jerry's ice cream!! Locations TBA!!
