Turning Rebellion into Money: A Tribute to Joe Strummer
In addition to crafting a slew of indelible socio-political anthems with the Clash and as a solo artist, Joe Strummer also left behind a legacy of defiant activism and bold self-awareness. A diverse selection of local bands will be on hand to breathe some new life into Strummer's spirited music, with all of the proceeds from the show set to be donated to Free Arts Minnesota in memory of Daniel Levy, son of the Honeydogs' Adam Levy. Levy himself will be on hand to play some of Strummer's songs, as will BNLX, Haley Bonar, Dylan Hicks, the Farewell Circuit, Jim Ruiz Set, and Rogue Valley, to name just a few, with all of them seeing to it that the musical fires Strummer lit still burn brightly today. 18+.
