Our good friends at the Oh Yeah Centre in Belfast raised funds for the Joe Strummer Foundation at their London Calling celebration last month!
The fine folks at Belfast’s Oh Yeah Centre have raised £773 for the Joe Strummer Foundation through a special event celebrating the legacy of The Clash and the 40th anniversary of London Calling. The evening featured tributes and original music from a line-up of revolutionary rabble-rousers from the Belfast music community.
Punk Is Alive & Well In Belfast
“The Joe Strummer Foundation was an early champion of the Oh Yeah Music Centre. Thanks to them we were able to build two rehearsal spaces back in 2009. Ten years later and the rooms are as busy as ever, hundreds of bands have used the facility and it’s provided countless musicians with inspiration and a space to create. We wanted to give a little back while celebrating the 40th anniversary of London Calling. Punk is still very much alive in Belfast and we share the ethos of Joe Strummer. Keep up the amazing work and thank you for believing in us.”
– Charlotte Dryden, Chief Executive, Oh Yeah Centre
We’d like to thank everyone involved with this cracking event. The funds raised will help us with our mission to create empowerment through music.
