Wayne Kramer & Friends – Jail Guitar Doors Rock Out 3
Venue: The Ford Theatres – City: Hollywood – Date: September, 9th 2016

Once upon a time Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello as the Nightwatchman, the MC5’s Wayne Kramer and friends from Jane’s Addiction, Alice in Chains, Cypress Hill, Public Enemy, Ben Harper and more would gather every Tuesday night at the tiny Hotel Cafe in Hollywood to deliver amazing, star-studded intimate shows which were probably the best-kept secret in town. What all these guys had in common was raising money for various charities and last night was no exception, Wayne Kramer having a benefit show, Rock Out 3,  for Jail Guitar Doors, a non-profit providing music instruments to inmate.

For this event Wayne Kramer brought a wide variety of guests to the stage including Gilby Clarke (Guns N’ Roses), Don Was, Marshall Crenshaw, Jill Sobule,Keith Morris (Black Flag), Jason Heath & the Greedy Souls, Matt “Matre” Sawaya (Street Poets), the Wild Reeds as well as comedian Bobcat Goldthwaite and MTV DJ Matt Pinfield as hosts.

Each act performed a 3-song set and some highlights included the two closers – renditions of The Clash’s “Jail Guitar Doors” and MC5’s “Kick Out the Jams” with around 30 musicians on stage – Gilby Clarke performing a Guns N’ Roses-style “Knockin on Heaven’s Door” and the Who’s “Won’t Get Fooled Again”, Wild Reeds’s charming harmonies, among others.
