Over the summer I got to take pics of Prophets of Rage (who “Prophets Of Rage combines the sonic firepower of Rage Against The Machine, Public Enemy and Cypress Hill”) and one of the openers Awolnation for Japanese publication rockin’on (RO69) back on August 27th 2016 at Barclays Center. Akemi’s interview / piece went up after the election and you can find it here. The Awolnation pics weren’t to be part of the article and most of the pics of Prophets of Rage weren’t posted so I wanted to share the best of the bunch here now. I do wish Prophets of Rage had been more outspoken politically on stage, but at least I got to hear so many great Rage Against the Machine songs live. Check out a ton of photos after the jump.

I don’t know his music but Romeo Santos puts on a fun concert based up the three songs I saw and from the review that ran on the Village Voice with a few of my photos (that are not posted here). In her review, Claire Lobenfeld wrote about his awesomeness, “In the middle of Romeo Santos’s final night of his three-show run at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, the anointed king of the new generation of bachata told the crowd, “Do not bring men to my concert.” This wasn’t a comment on the many instances of girlfriend-stealing and temporary lover-dom he had been espousing for most of the evening. This was about “Dudes who hate at home.” As he went on, he said in so many words that gay fans were welcome, as well as men who were there to have a good time, but that frowning boyfriends and husbands should be left scowling on the couch. “Why do you like Romeo? I can do that shit better than him!” he joked to the crowd. “No, you can’t, motherfuckers. Or else I wouldn’t be up here.””

Well played Romeo. Check out some additional photos from the third and final night of his run at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn after the jump.
