The Pulse of Radio reports that RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE guitarist Tom Morello hosted an intimate fundraiser at the Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles last Wednesday night (April 9), where he was joined by ex-JANE'S ADDICTION leader Perry Farrell, FILTER frontman Richard Patrick and singer Ben Harper, along with Sen Dog and B-Real of CYPRESS HILL. According to Buzznet.com, the event was aimed at raising money and awareness for Axis of Justice, the non-profit activist organization that Morello founded with SYSTEM OF A DOWN vocalist Serj Tankian.
The venue filled quickly to capacity, with the event asking only for $10 donations. Morello and several other artists came out into the alley behind the club a number of times to play for disappointed fans who couldn't get in.
The show raised over $2,100, which will be distributed to PATH, an international non-profit organization working to improve health and global well-being.
Morello, who performed as THE NIGHTWATCHMAN, is also heading up the activism-oriented Justice Tour '08, which kicks off a two-week, seven-city run on Tuesday (April 15) in Los Angeles. The revolving cast of musicians will include several who performed on Wednesday along with members of TOOL, INCUBUS, A.F.I. and VELVET REVOLVER.
