Angelenos, your chance to #MakeAmericaRageAgain has come. The Prophets of Rage—a new band consisting of members of Rage Against the Machine, Public Enemy and Cypress Hill—are performing their first live show tonight at 8:30 p.m. at the Whisky A Go-Go, according to posts on the band's social media pages. Tickets are on sale now and must be bought in person at the venue's box office. Proceeds will benefit People Assisting the Homeless (PATH).

The band's name comes from Public Enemy's song of the same name, which can be found on their album It Take A Nation Of Millions to Hold Us Back. Members include RATM's Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk; Public Enemy's Chuck D; and Cypress Hill's B Real and DJ Lord.

Oh, and don't call them a supergroup.

"We're not a supergroup," Morello told Rolling Stone. "We're an elite task force of revolutionary musicians determined to confront this mountain of election year bullshit, and confront it head-on with Marshall stacks blazing."
