Cleveland Calling: A Joe Strummer Tribute Band/Boys from the County Hell/All Dinosaurs 

When: Sat., July 18, 9 p.m. 2015
Price: $18
The Clash’s Joe Strummer wasn’t just a great singer and guitarist. He was also an activist. In the wake of his death in 2002, the Joe Strummer Foundation has sought to give “opportunities to aspiring musicians and support to projects around the world that create social mobility through music.” That’s the mission statement you’ll find on the organization’s website. At tonight's concert, local bands the Boys from the County Hell and All Dinosaurs will play sets of Clash covers as part of a benefit dubbed Cleveland’s Calling. Local graphic artist Derek Hess has done the poster for the show and the concert’s promoters planned to have signed copies available for purchase at the event. Proceeds go to the Joe Strummer Foundation. Note that the club will not sell tickets on the night of the gig; tickets must be purchased in advance at brownpapertickets.com. (Niesel)
