Rage Against the Machine RNC - 09.02.08
The "beyond partisan" free concert on the lawn of Minnesota's state capitol today went from mellow and laid back to a political movement. The buzz around the crowd blew up when word got out that Rage Against the Machine would be making a surprise appearance on stage .RATM also played at the DNC and are scheduled to play another show at the RNC today (Sept 3).
Things got heated in the crowd when the Minnesota State Police would not let the band play despite the chanting of the thousands of people.
The music had to stop by 7:00 p.m. and when Rage figured they wouldn't be allowed on stage they took to the crowd to make their voices heard. The video above shot by Above the Fold's Joshua Sidney explains the rest. [Above the Fold]
