first_imgJust over a year ago, Prophets of Rage–a politically-charged supergroup comprised of Tom Morello, Tim Commerford, and Brad Wilk of Rage Against The Machine, Chuck D and DJ Lord of Public Enemy, and B-Real of Cypress Hill–burst into existence with an angry bang. The outfit, described by Morello in 2016 as “an elite task force of revolutionary musicians determined to confront this mountain of election year bullshit,” came together for a string of summer amphitheater shows following their widely buzzed-about maiden shows in LA and Brooklyn featuring a mix of material by RATM, Public Enemy, and Cypress Hill. The band also promised that they would be recording original music.The promise was fulfilled last month with the Michael Moore-directed “Unfuck the World,” the first single from the upcoming self-titled debut LP Prophets of Rage–due out September 15. Last week, the super group released the second single, “Living on the 110.” Today, the band has released the official music video for “Living on the 110,” which features some of the wealthiest and most impoverished places in Los Angeles and New York City. Watch it below:Additionally, the band announced four surprise shows at Boston’s Paradise Rock Club on 9/7, Asbury Park’s Stone Pony on 9/9, Philadelphia’s TLA on 9/10 , and New York City’s Apollo Theatre on 9/12. Prophets Of Rage will unleash their fury at special limited club gigs to mark the upcoming release of the debut album, out September 15.More information about their tour schedule can be found here.last_img read more


first_imgKershaw mixed his pitches well and kept the Angels off balance and off base. He gave up more than one run for the first time since he gave up four runs, but didn’t earn a decision in the Dodgers’ 5-4 loss Aug. 7 to the Pittsburgh Pirates.Calhoun also singled in the third, but was stranded when Mike Trout struck out to end the inning. David Freese singled to start the fifth, but Kershaw got Shane Victorino to hit into a force play and then got Chris Iannetta to hit into an inning-ending double play.Kershaw was never in anything resembling jeopardy until the seventh, when he loaded the bases not once but twice and the Angels managed to score only once to cut the Dodgers’ lead to 6-2. Two errors by shortstop Corey Seager opened the possibility for a bigger inning.Kershaw balked home one run, but yielded no more. He struck out Calhoun with the bases loaded to end the seventh. Third base umpire Tripp Gibson rang up Calhoun on a check-swing appeal, appearing to get it wrong as indicated by TV replays available to reporters.Angels manager Mike Scioscia gave Gibson an earful from the dugout, from the field and everywhere in between, and earned an early exit for his protests. Calhoun was out, the Angels were retired and the Dodgers held a 6-2 lead entering the eighth.“I looked at the replay and it was pretty obvious,” Scioscia later said when asked his view of the play. “The ump had a different opinion and that was it.”For a while, it seemed as if Tuesday’s game might turn into a pitchers’ duel between Kershaw and Angels right-hander Andrew Heaney (6-3). Heaney gave up a leadoff homer to Justin Ruggiano and a go-ahead run on a wild pitch in the third that made it 2-1.Heaney was nowhere near as efficient as Kershaw, but the Dodgers couldn’t extend a 2-1 lead until breaking through with a four-run sixth. Heaney gave up a walk, a single and a run-scoring ground-rule double to Seager before Scioscia turned the game over to the bullpen.After a run-scoring ground out, a run-scoring force play and a run-scoring sacrifice fly, the Dodgers held a commanding 6-1 lead. And with Kershaw at the top of his game, it seemed the Angels were done for the night. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Their starting rotation lacks depth. Their bullpen is a nightly adventure. Their lineup is a patchwork.And yet the Dodgers can’t seem to lose.The sizzling Dodgers defeated the faltering Angels 6-4 on Tuesday, backed by superb pitching from left-hander Clayton Kershaw and bolstered by a four-run sixth inning that turned a potentially nerve-jangling game into a runaway in front of 41,086 at Angel Stadium. The victory was the National League West-leading Dodgers’ fifth consecutive and their eighth in a row over the Angels in what’s become a one-sided Freeway Series. Kershaw improved to 13-6 overall and 8-0 in his last 12 starts since his last defeat June 27 against the Miami Marlins.center_img • WHICKER: Corey Seager gives Dodgers a boost“It seemed like this was the best pure baseball game we’ve played, just as far as doing the little things, moving guys over, sac flies, situational hitting and things like that,” Kershaw said. “It seemed like it was so easy to score runs tonight, and not just with big hits. That was awesome to see.“We’re playing great. It’s fun to see. We’re not making too many errors, especially on the mental side. Make the errors on the physical side. You’re seeing a lot more of that. You’re starting to see more stolen bases, things like that, that good teams do. Just got to keep the foot on the gas.“Just keep going.”As has become his custom during his unbeaten streak of starts, Kershaw took the game and made it his after giving up a leadoff homer to Kole Calhoun that tied the score 1-all. He worked seven innings and gave up only two runs (one earned) and four hits, with eight strikeouts and two walks.last_img read more
