Tom Morello To Put On Occupy SXSW Showcase

An Occupy Austin ‘Flash Mob dance Party’ is set to take place.

Tom Morello has announced plans to team up with the Occupy Austin movement for a ‘Flash Mob Dance Party’.

The Occupy showcase is to take place this Friday night (16th March).

The Rage Against The Machine guitarist told Rolling Stone: ‘SXSW has a lot of specialty shows – record companies, vodka companies, promoters and things like that. I thought it was important that at a music gathering of that size, to have a place where the rebels, revolutionaries, rockers, rappers and the 99 percent could gather and have a mighty SXSW throw down.’

The Austin festival is now underway (it began on the 11th) and runs until the 20th March.
