The Red Hot Chili Peppers gave a surprise performance at the high school where Chad Smith’s children attend today.
Dressed up in costume, drummer Smith tweeted news about the performance earlier today (October 31), writing: “Who rocks out at 9:30a.m. at my kids school? We do!” You can watch a clip of the performance here:

A couple of parents played a mini-concert at my friend's kid's school. Turned out it was the Red Hot Chili Peppers, which seems like one of the most LA things ever.

Recently, frontman Kiedis was ejected from an LA Lakers basketball game this weekend following an incident with his sporting teams rivals’ staff and players.
Kiedis was booted out on October 21 after allegedly shouting profanities at Chris Paul, a member of the Rockets team. He was also have alleged to flip the middle finger at Paul before he was escorted out of the stadium.
Meanwhile, it was confirmed last month that Red Hot Chili Peppers are about to head back into the studio.
The upcoming record will be the band’s 12th and the follow-up to 2016’s ‘The Getaway’. In a three-star review, NME said the album featured “a reluctance to take too many risks” but was “progress” from its predecessor, ‘I’m With You.’
