RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE guitarist TOM MORELLO will lead a group of musicians and actors to honor the labor songwriter JOE HILL at THE TROUBADOUR in LOS ANGELES on NOVEMBER 17th. Additional artists include JOAN BAEZ, ZIGGY MARLEY, RICH ROBINSON (THE BLACK CROWES), BOOTS RILEY, TIM ARMSTRONG, WAYNE KRAMER, VAN DYKE PARKS, JILL SOBULE and DAVID ROVICS, with more special guests to be announced.
THE LAST INTERNATIONALE and BUILT FOR THE SEA, who are both signed to MORELLO's FIREBRAND RECORDS, will play as well. Musicians will perform songs from and inspired by HILL's extensive songbook - which features picket line and protest classics "There is Power in a Union," "The Rebel Girl," "The Preacher and the Slave, and "Casey Jones," among many others.
"JOE HILL's influence is everywhere. Without JOE HILL, there's no WOODY GUTHRIE, no DYLAN, no SPRINGSTEEN, no CLASH, no PUBLIC ENEMY, no MINOR THREAT, no SYSTEM OF A DOWN, no RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE," MORELLO stated.
Tickets can be had here.
