Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello is among the artists set to play the annual Jail Guitar Doors Benefit concert

Rage Against the Machine‘s Tom Morello is set to rock a benefit concert this Friday (Sept. 5) to help Jail Guitar Doors USA, a charity with the mission to assist prisoners by giving them musical instruments. The gig will take place at the John Anson Ford Amphitheater in Hollywood, Calif.

MC5 guitarist Wayne Kramer co-founded the Jail Guitar Doors USA organization in 2009 with singer Billy Bragg, and Kramer put together this second annual benefit show. The night will also include performances by Jackson Browne, Been Harper, White Fence and Jill Sobule.

Bragg founded the original Jail Guitar Doors charity back in 2007 in the U.K. in remembrance of late Clash frontman Joe Strummer. The organization’s name is taken from a Clash tune Strummer wrote called “Jail Guitar Doors.”

Tickets for the benefit show are available via the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre’s official website, and the cost ranges from $35 for general admission tickets to $150 for reserved seats.
