Justice Tour 2008 Goes SiCKO

The Nightwatchman Tom Morello's Justice Tour 2008 is taking him across the country to rally groups working to bring about social change. In Boston, he met up with American SiCKO's Donna Smith and Adrian Campbell as they push for universal healthcare with Healthcare-NOW.
Politics aside, it has to rank as the year’s best music bargain: three hours of music from a panoply of national and local stars for $15.

But politics was the whole point of Sunday night’s Justice Tour 2008, which drew about 700 fans at the Berklee Performance Center in Boston. Each stop on the two-week tour is tied into a local community action group – Healthcare Now in Boston – and several other advocacy groups play major roles. Iraqi War Veterans Against the War had an informational booth in the lobby.

It’s all the latest project for Tom Morello, better known as the guitarist for Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave, who also performs as a crusading folk singer under the moniker The Nightwatchman. Morello, 43, has assembled an impressive cast of supporting acts, with every lineup different so local stars can be featured, and Boston’s lineup was superb.
