Tom Morello: The Nightwatchman
From Rolling Stone:
Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello has announced plans to perform at the Occupy Wall Street protest at noon tomorrow in Manhattan. Morello, who has previously performed at the Occupy Los Angeles rally, will play a solo set as the Nightwatchman.
Morello will be the third major act to perform at the protest. Neutral Milk Hotel's Jeff Mangum and rapper Talib Kweli have recently played impromptu sets at the protest site.
Earlier this week, Kanye West visited the scene, but did not perform.
Morello paused for a moment as he tuned his guitar in front of the Occupy Wall Street masses this morning at NYC's Liberty Plaza. "This is crazy out here," he said, smiling. The Rage Against the Machine guitarist went on to perform a four-song set for hundreds of onlookers, including a poignant, protester-fueled rendition of Woody Guthrie's "This Land Is Your Land."
