Prophets of Rage have posted additional information on the Anti-Inaugural Ball which will feature the reunion of Audioslave.
“The Anti-Inaugural Ball is a celebration of resistance. Resistance to racism. Resistance to sexism. Resistance to homophobia. Resistance to bullying. Resistance to environmental devastation. Resistance to fascism. Resistance to Donald Trump. We are staring down the barrel of a dystopian nightmare unless we act NOW, unless we fight back NOW. We intend to create ‘No Trump Zones’ across the country; in our homes, our schools, our places of work, and our concert stages. Bad Presidents make for great music. Join us as we get loud and stand together to defend our rights, our country, and our planet.”
Audioslave will reunite for their first performance in over a decade on Friday at the Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles at the Anti-Inaugural Ball, protesting President Donald Trump’s inauguration.
Prophets of Rage, Vic Mensa, Jackson Browne, Jack Black, and The Los Angeles Freedom Choir will also perform.
Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan appeared on Mancow on Thursday, and defended President-elect Donald Trump from false media reports. Corgan appeared the day after fake news was reported by CNN and BuzzFeed about President-elect Donald Trump. Alternative Nation transcribed his comments. Corgan was discussing his road trip he is currently taking across America when the discussion shifted to politics.
“There’s something going on right now in America, where the American spirit or character is reasserting itself around liberty. I think it’s an important time, and I’m trying to document that as an artist. If I just filter what I read through the media, which obviously yesterday was a watershed day with the media, if I just go through what I read through the media, I’m not really in touch with the world I grew up in. I know there’s a gap there, I talk to my relatives, I talk to people I meet traveling around, and their mind is on something completely different.”
Mancow said it’s all propaganda in the media today, and Corgan followed up by trashing CNN’s Anderson Cooper.
“I once had a feud with Anderson Cooper, who ran fake news about me a few years back. I would recommend anyone to watch the clip from last night of Anderson Cooper taking on [Counselor to President Trump] Kellyanne Conway. He spent 7 minutes melting down, it’s one of the most embarrassing things I’ve ever seen from a journalist, especially someone at his level who understands the game. He absolutely is melting down trying to pin her down, and it’s amazing watching the mainstream American media melt down before our eyes. It’s something I thought I’d never see.”
