Tom Morello, the living legend guitarist from Rage Against the Machine, released his solo project's debut album on Tuesday. Following an in-store appearance at Amoeba Records, Morello packed out the Hotel Cafe and assembled a show that could most accurately be described as something between a spectacle and a true extravaganza. If you would have told me that one day I would see Tom Morello, Alanis Morissette, Ben Harper, Jill Sobule, John Sinclair, members of Alice In Chains, Extreme, Motor City 5, Motley Crue, and Cypress Hill sharing a stage in a tiny club, I would have thought you were nuts. Because you are reading this, you can probably guess what happened on Tuesday night.
