A benefit show celebrating the life of Clash frontman Joe Strummer is to take place in London this month, on the eve of the annivesary of the icon’s death, December 21.

The show will see live performances from The Rotten Hill Gang, The Riff-Raff, Dan Smith and The Savage Nomads as well as DJs.

The fundraiser at The Tabernacle venue in West London will raise money for the Strummerville Foundation, a charity that “aims to create new opportunities for aspiring musicians” and which was set up by Strummer’s widow Lucinda
shortly after his death in 2002.

The foundation currently runs The Roundhouse Studios in Camden and funds musical projects for those who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford to. For more details about their work and the benefit show, see www.strummerville.com
