CSN To Join Tom Morello For Protest Concert In L.A.
Crosby, Stills and Nash will join Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello for a special concert at the Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles. The show is a benefit to help defeat Proposition 32 on the State of California’s November election ballot. CSN and Morello claim that the measure is deceptive and designed to mislead voters into gutting campaign transparency laws. The event will feature an evening performance by CSN, with Tom Morello opening for them with an acoustic set. The musicians will also be joined by guest speakers like actor/producer/director Edward James Olmos. These guest speakers will advocate for Propositon 32’s defeat between sets, and fire up a crowd that is expected to include thousands of members of organized labor.
“Out-of-state corporations are using Prop. 32 to tilt the playing field even more in their direction and away from real people,” Tom Morello said. “This is about oil, tobacco, banking and insurance companies gaining the power necessary to re-write laws to fit their agenda…more tax credits for shipping jobs overseas, weaker consumer protections and relaxing air quality laws.”
The event will take place on Wednesday, October 3. The reception will begin at 5pm, with music starting at 7pm.
