Flier of the Week: Joe Strummer Benefit & Memorial


This one comes from the "leave your number at the beginning of any voice mail you leave me" file: I got a call from the front man of Glass Heroes yesterday about the Joe Strummer benefit and memorial the band is hosting this Saturday at George and Dragon downtown. His message got cut off before I got all the relevant details, or a way to track him down, but it sounds like a cool $5 show.

The bands on the bill are my kind of punk: True believers in touch with the spirit of '77. We've written nice things about the Heroes live shows here before, and all proceeds go to the former Clash frontman's foundation, so it sounds like it's worth checking out. It's also a pretty cool poster. --Martin Cizmar
