Early warnings for Joe Strummer 10th anniversary events

25 October 2012 Under: Clash Memories, Clash News, Events, Joe Strummer

Good evening fine people and welcome back to the blog, hope all is well at your end. I don’t want to overstate the enjoyable responses by The Baker to questions raised by his guest appearance on the blog a short while back, but if you haven’t kept an eye on each of his guest posts (under the comments section) I really encourage you to do so. Loads of interesting moments of Clash history are examined in depth from a man who was right there after all. Links to the post are here – part one and part two.

Tonight I wanted to give a very abbreviated overview of the Joe Strummer memorial events coming up between now and the end of the year, I will do my very best to preview each one in more detail as the dates draw nearer but I felt that an early warning might be beneficial in many cases. Brief details with clickable links to each events page (if they have one) are below, if you know of any that I have missed please let me know so I can get them included on the site. Right then, off we go – alphabetical by each city seems to make the most sense:

Buenos Aires, Argentina: La Plata Calling – 15 December 2012.

Newark, Notts, England: Strummernight 22 December 2012. The Horse and Jockey

Naturally each of these events have flyers and a list of guest acts which I’ll be sure and preview before each date with the probable exception of the Milan festival which is this weekend but importantly I wanted to direct you towards each event and get tickets if one happens to be in your city. Australia was represented by the 4 city Revolution Rock this month which went really well but I hope we’ll see something pop up in Spain, Germany, Japan (?) and perhaps Mexico. Of course as I see them I’ll add them back to this update and cover via the blog, facebook and twitter.  Sorry for the mad scramble but I didn’t want the Milan event to pass us by and suddenly I realised we’re in late October. Plus don’t forget there is always the ‘upcoming events’ over on the the right of each page —-> if you want to see what is on the horizon. I’m happy to add other things to that calendar if they have a relevancy to Clash fans. All good? Have a great night, Tim

    RE: StrummerJam 2012 / Stone Pony, Asbury Park NJ

    I have an event page for this on my facebook page (clashophile)

    THANK YOU TIM for posting this!!! We are hoping to get a full house to really rock and celebrate the life of a man who has influenced all the bands who are performing at this gig. And also to raise needed funds for Strummerville who do such great work in Joe's name.

    Anyone who has any questions related to the gig can contact me on my facebook page (clashophile).

    Thanks again, Tim.
