Occupy Wall Street to be graced by Tom Morello performance as The Nightwatchman

Audioslave/Rage Against the Machine axeman Tom Morello certainly doesn’t pull any political punches.

Tomorrow, at 9 a.m. our time, he’ll once again be chiming in with the blue-collar masses when he performs acoustically as his alter ego The Nightwatchman at Occupy Wall Street in New York, at Liberty Plaza/Zuccotti Park.

This follows his free concert for Occupy Los Angeles last weekend. And if you’re wondering exactly why all these hardworking Americans are so frustrated, read Michael Lewis’ insightful “Boomerang” book for the full, incredibly grim worldview/picture.

The Nightwatchman plays San Francisco on Oct. 21 at Great American Music Hall, backing his new album “World Wide Rebel Songs” and charity EP, “Union Town,” inspired by his performance in Madison, Wis., this year in protest of Gov. Scott Walker’s anti-union bill (profits go to the America Votes Labor Unity Fund via www.saveworkers.org).

In addition to running the Axis Of Justice he formed with Serj Tankian, Morello also has — believe it or not — a comic book coming out: “Orchid,” a “revolutionary fantasy,” with art by Scott Hepburn and new Morello music in every issue.
