One Friday in February 2013, KEXP Morning Show host John Richards decided that one Clash song wasn’t enough, and so International Clash Day was born.
This year we also celebrate all of the world governments that have declared International Clash Day an official holiday: The City of Seattle, The State of Washington, The City of San Francisco, The City of Vancouver, BC, The City of Austin, and more!
Read Austin Mayor Steve Adler’s International Clash Day proclamation and make plans to join KUTX and KEXP at the ABGB Tuesday, February 7th starting at 6:30 p.m., with Rick Broussard’s Two Hoots and a Holler, Migrant Kids, a dub DJ set, and special guests. Below, KUTX’s Clash expert Paul Carrubba talks with KEXP’s John Richards about the celebration and the Clash’s enduring legacy.
