Rage Waging War Against the War?

On Thursday, Madison House Publicity announced that Rage Against the Machine will be added to a bill playing at Tent State University in Denver on August 27 to protest the war during the DNC along with the Flobots, The Coup, State Radio, and Wayne Kramer at the “Tent State Music Festival to End the War“.

After what happened at Lollapalooza, I hope Rage can avoid fighting with it’s own fans and it’s politically nostologic rap-rock past and push the music and the message forward. And maybe de la Rocha will debut some of his new One Day as a Lion material.

Here’s some more info if you’re in that part of the country:

Each lottery winner will get two tickets for the Festival.

WINNERS can claim their tickets at the Denver Coliseum beginning 9:30 AM on Wednesday, August 27.

ONLY the WINNER can claim the tickets on show day. Photo ID required. NO name changes will be accepted under any circumstance.

Guest MUST be present when WINNER claims the tickets. After claiming the tickets, WINNER and their guest must immediately enter the coliseum.

    Greetings,

    This is my first time on the blog.

    I wanted to jump in to the mix here and toss in a topic for discussion and invite you to continue the discussion on the SOMB, a message board many people read ,to discuss the subtext of the live concert experience via live sociological, psychological and anthropological experiments and threads of thought.

    Since I know everyone on this blog really loves music, I wanted to know how important live music is to you as fans, and why?

    Thanks and I look forward to meeting you guys!
