Rage Against the Machine plays immigrants' benefit show at the Palladium on July 23 [UPDATED]

July 14, 2010 |  5:37 pm


Arizona's loss is Los Angeles' gain in live music, apparently: Rage Against the Machine and Conor Oberst have just announced a one-off show at the Hollywood Palladium on July 23 to support the Sound Strike's boycott of Arizona in the wake of the controversial SB 1070.

The concert will raise funds for a number of immigrant-activist organizations, including the community organizing group Puente, Arizona and the Florence Project, which provides legal counsel and social services to immigrant communities. The show will be Rage's first in Los Angeles proper in 10 years. An on-sale date for tickets has not been announced yet.

[UPDATE: Tickets go on-sale Monday, July 19 at 10:00 a.m.]
