Strummerville Benefit Concert at Bowery Electric

In honor of the late Joe Strummer of the Clash, more than a dozen local rockers staged a benefit tonight at Bowery Electric for Strummerville, the charity that was formed by his friends and family in the year after his death to offer support, resources and performance opportunities to artists who would not normally have access to them. I was not present for the entire concert, but the artists who were scheduled to appear included H.R. of Bad Brains, Brian Fallon (pictured right) of Gaslight Anthem, Jesse Malin, Willie Nile, Tad Kubler of the Hold Steady, Walter Lure of the Waldos and the Heartbreakers, the So So Glos and many more New York favorites.
