Get ready to "rock to this brand new beat"! Join us in the Performance Space for a very Clash-themed evening: a Listening Session to the double-LP of London Calling on vinyl. Get reacquainted with the landmark blend of outspoken rock & roll, roots music, and an expansive punk aesthetic that has made the album endure 40 years after its release.

"Merry and tough, passionate and large-spirited, London Calling celebrates the romance of rock & roll rebellion in grand, epic terms. It doesn’t merely reaffirm the Clash’s own commitment to rock-as-revolution. Instead, the record ranges across the whole of rock & roll’s past for its sound, and digs deeply into rock legend, history, politics and myth for its images and themes. Everything has been brought together into a single, vast, stirring story — one that, as the Clash tell it, seems not only theirs but ours." - Tom Carson, Rolling Stone, April 1980

This event is part of the Clash: Loud and Clear event series presented by 3S Artspace.
