Guitarist plays acoustic show in Austin

Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello played an acoustic-based show tonight (March 13) at Stubb’s at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas.

The show was part of the Body Of War musical showcase, which highlighted the plight of disabled Iraq war veteran Thomas Young.

Morello joined Ben Harper on stage after Harper had played two songs acoustically. The duo played two protest songs acoustically before Morello played a short set himself to the increasingly-swelling crowd at Stubb’s.
