Former A’s manager Tony LaRussa and a host of performers take the stage this weekend to support Animal Rescue Foundation with two benefit shows: ARF Rocks at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Stars to the Rescue XVII at 7 p.m. Saturday.
Friday’s lineup includes the Brooklyn-based ZO2 — which has been described as a cross between Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Audioslave and Stone Temple Pilots — along with Motley Crue’s Vince Neil and “Rock Star INXS” runner-up Marty Casey and Lovehammers.
Both shows are at the Dean Lesher Center for the Arts, 1601 Civic Drive, Walnut Creek. Tickets are $50 to $125 for Friday’s event and $100 to $200 for Saturday’s performance. Call (925) 943-SHOW or visit www.lesherartscenter.org.
