Rage Against the Machine’s Zack de la Rocha gave a non-stop performance with drummer Jon Theodore and keyboardist Joey Karam as the group One Day as a Lion Saturday night inside the Mojave tent at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
Rocha jumped, pumped his fists and yelled throughout his sweat-filled set with the picture-perfect sounding Theodore and Karam. Rocha has lost nothing and the group sounded tremendous live.
The group tore through the songs on their “One Day as a Lion” EP including “Wild International” and others while Rocha used an echo effect on his voice to great results. The crowd couldn’t get enough and at one point chanted for the N.W.A. song “….” Tha Police but the song wasn’t performed.
