Tom Morello Coming To Cleveland
On Tuesday, Sept. 6, Tom Morello (under the moniker The Nightwatchman) of Rage Against The Machine and Tim McIlrath of Rise Against will be coming to The Grog Shop. The tour has been named “The Justice Tour,” and there are only two other dates at the moment, one in Madison, Wis. and the other in Flint, Mich.
All profits from these shows will be going to The Nation Institute. The description on their website states, “A nonprofit media center, The Nation Institute was established to extend the reach of progressive ideas and strengthen the independent press.”
Morello had this to say about the tour:
“This year’s Justice Tour aims to support independent media which is battling the mountain of disinformation and propaganda foisted on the public by right wing media barons. We will also return to the union battlegrounds of the Midwest to help steel the backbone of workers under siege.”
Morello’s Nightwatchman project is a pretty far cry from what you may expect of the Rage Against The Machine and Audioslave guitarist. It presents a folky, acoustic side of Morello, but with his strong political leanings still intact. So come out, hear some good music and support a good cause.
