Tom Morello w/ Boots Riley in Vancouver
Saturday, November 8, 2008

If you don't know by now, this MFer can play guitar. Tom Morello has an interesting background story as well, but you'll have to read the interview in our next issue to find out about that. I was blown away by his stage hustle though. Morello practically juggles guitars, he switches it up so often. His solo pseudonym is The Nightwatchmen and his album, Fabled City, is strong effort with a global perspective to it. The transition from accoustic to electric amplifies the show's emotional arc. Tom is very passionate about his tunes and the crowd was respectful of his art. It helps when you have Boots Riley from the Coup open up for you and you are playing the almost always packed Commodore. It also helps when you can actually scratch like a DJ on your guitar too! It's no boast, this guy really is a One Man Revolution.
