will perform during FM 103.9's monthly 3rd Thursday Block Party on Craftsman Court, across from Dos Gringos. The group, which also features Boots Riley, released its self-titled debut album earlier this summer and embarked on a two-month North American trek opening for Nine Inch Nails and Jane's Addiction.The 11-song disc was produced by Morello and features Riley on vocals and Stanton Moore on drums.
"It's revolutionary party jams," Morello has said of the album. "It's got huge steamroller riffs combined with depth, charge, funk, while Boots unloads clip after clip of incendiary rhymes rich with satire and venom," The all-ages, free block party, which kicks off at 8 p.m., will also include local boys Weird is the New Cool and LA indie-rock outfit Great Northern. The latter features vocalist/guitarist Solon Bixler, formerly the guitarist for the Jared Leto-fronted 30 Seconds to Mars.
The fun begins at 8 p.m.
