Prophets of Rage, the new supergroup with 3/4 of Rage Against the Machine (everyone except Zack de la Rocha), Chuck D of Public Enemy and B-Real of Cypress Hill, were supposed to make their NYC debut at a surprise Governors Ball appearance yesterday (6/5), until the festival's third and would-be final day was cancelled. They still managed to play NYC though, squeezing in a small Brooklyn show at Warsaw. Like at their live debut in LA last week, they played songs by RATM, PE, and Cypress Hill, a cover of the Beastie Boys' "No Sleep 'Til Brooklyn" (mashed with "Fight The Power"), and a new original song called "The Party's Over." The set included such favorites as "Bombtrack," "Take the Power back," "(Rock) Superstar)," "Testify," "Insane in the Brain," "Bring the Noise," "Bulls On Parade," "Aint Going Out," "Killing In the Name," the song the band is named after ("Prophets of Rage"), and more. The show was opened by DJ Lord. Pictures, videos, and the setlist are in this post.

Prophets of Rage also just announced a tour, which includes a MUCH larger Brooklyn show this summer: Barclays Center on August 27. It also includes big NYC-area shows at PNC Bank Arts Center on August 26 and Nikon at Jones Beach Theater on August 28. Tickets for the entire "Make America Rage Again" tour go on sale Friday (6/10) at 10 AM local time. All dates are listed HERE.
