international clash day kexp

Observed February 7th, International Clash Day is an annual celebration of one of the UK’s most seminal bands. Despite exploding onto the punk scene with their self titled debut in 1977, The Clash are as much celebrated for reaching across musical and cultural divisions, together with their promotion of equality and human rights around the globe.

With their landmark third album London Calling reaching its 40th Anniversary this year, Seattle’s KEXP have a stellar line up of programming to celebrate the event. KEXP will broadcast live from London for a 4-day event, including live performances from Avalanche Party, IDLES, Heavy Lungs and Goat Girl. Together with exclusive interviews and a special focus on the music and message of London Calling. 

KEXP will celebrate ICD this side of the Atlantic on Thursday, February 7th with a Clash Covers Night at Seattle’s Washington Hall at 7:00 PM, featuring Hotels, Mirrorgloss, Guayaba, and Dark Smith. Tickets are available via KEXP here.
