KEXP Songbook Series: We are The Clash

KEXP Gathering Space

[ Facebook Event ]

Join KEXP for a special evening with Mark Andersen, author of the book We are The Clash: Reagan, Thatcher, and the Last Stand of a Band that Mattered, out now via Akashic Books. Anderson tells the story of The Clash's reinvention in the band's final years, as they faced down the specter of nuclear war and the rise of right-wing power (as personified by Ronald Reagan in the US and Margaret Thatcher in the UK). Owen Murphy will lead a conversation with Andersen, followed by a Q&A and book signing with the author. This event is free and open to the public as part of Songbook: KEXP’s Music and Storytelling Series. In partnership with Elliott Bay Book Company. Made possible in part by BECU.
