Just hours after officially introducing themselves to the world, Prophets Of Rage played their first sold-out show.
The group, which consists of Chuck D and DJ Lord from Public Enemy, B-Real from Cypress Hill, and Rage Against The Machine minus singer Zack de la Rocha, came together at Los Angeles’ Whiskey a Go-Go venue to play a politically charged set that featured classic songs from all three catalogs, as well as a new track called “The Party Is Over.”
Check out some video clips and photos from the show below.
Prophets of Rage performed last night at Whiskey a Go Go, gathering former members of #RageAgainstTheMachine with hip-hop superstars #ChuckD and #BReal. The show was a potent promise for a chaotic political year, as Prophets of Rage made their live debut to a packed room on the Sunset Strip, unleashing the combined power of #RATM’s guitarist #TomMorello, drummer #BradWilk and bassist #TimCommerford, quiet for too long. From its beginnings in 1991, Rage was a politically militant force fueled on hard rock and hip-hop during the Clinton years. Morello arrived for the occasion Tuesday dressed in revolutionary red, slashing at a guitar reading “Arm the homeless,” opening the set with PE’s “#ProphetsOfRage.” Click through the link in our bio to read the full review of the show. #MakeAmericaRageAgain Photograph by Andy Keilen (@keilenphotography)
