Chris Cornell, Tom Morello, Brad Wilk, and Tim Commerford have reunited as Audioslave for the first time in over a decade at the Anti-Inaugural Ball at the Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles last night. The Soundgarden and Rage Against the Machine supergroup performed three tracks off their debut 2002 self-titled LP, including “Like a Stone”, “Cochise”, and “Show Me How to Live.”The band hadn’t performed together since November of 2005, and officially broke up in early 2007 after releasing their third LP Revelations. It’s not likely that the band will continue this reunion in any shape or form, rather, it seemed to have been a one-time thing for the anti-Trump concert.Watch the entire performance below, courtesy of YouTube user Ted Weitzman:In a previous statement the band explained, “The Anti-Inaugural Ball is a celebration of resistance. Resistance to racism. Resistance to sexism. Resistance to homophobia. Resistance to bullying. Resistance to environmental devastation. Resistance to fascism. Resistance to Donald Trump. We are staring down the barrel of a dystopian nightmare unless we act NOW, unless we fight back NOW. We intend to create ‘No Trump Zones’ across the country; in our homes, our schools, our places of work, and our concert stages. Bad Presidents make for great music. Join us as we get loud and stand together to defend our rights, our country, and our planet.”The event also featured performances from Prophets of Rage, along with special sets from Jackson Browne, Jack Black, Vic Mensa, and the Los Angeles Freedom Choir.
Christchurch Press 25 April 2012A Merivale brothel has moved out of the suburb after a public backlash. Residents near the the Capri Lounge in Papanui Rd believed it was not complying with regulations for home-operated businesses and some complained of hearing “audible noises of climax” at night. At a public meeting in February, Families and Brothels Don’t Mix spokeswoman Amanda Cooper-Davies said the brothel had turned the neighbourhood into a “seedy” and “intimidating” place. “We have seen some pretty scary people … Some very threatening people come out of the property,” she said. At the meeting, the property owner said the brothel would be moved in response to the concerns. Cooper-Davies said yesterday that the brothel had moved into an industrial area elsewhere in the city. Residents had noticed an improvement after the brothel’s departure, she said. “There’s a far more relaxed feeling when you walk out your gate. It’s made an immediate difference.”http://www.stuff.co.nz/the-press/news/6802338/Seedy-brothel-moves-on
