Prophets of Rage Stay Empowering (and Surprisingly Apolitical) in Brooklyn

Day three of New York City’s Governors Ball festival may have been canceled due to inclement weather, but the rabid fans who showed up to witness Rage Against the Machine/Public Enemy/Cypress Hill supergroup Prophets of Rage at Brooklyn’s Warsaw on Sunday night ended up leaving the humid venue completely soaked anyway. 

The group is making a habit of throwing together shows quickly. The group was only announced on Saturday to be performing a surprise set at Gov Ball the following day. With the fest being canceled, their gloriously sweat-stained East Coast debut was hastily awarded to Brooklyn.
