International Clash Day

Two-Week Streaming Archive

“We’re anti-fascist, we’re anti-violence, we’re anti-racist, and we’re pro-creative. We’re against ignorance.” — Joe Strummer

On Tuesday, February 7th, 2023 KEXP celebrated International Clash Day!

This year, we focused on The Clash's message of "Know Your Rights." DJs Gabriel Teodros, John Richards, Albina Cabrera, Larry Mizell Jr., and Kevin Cole explored The Clash's message, legacy, and influences as well as exploring new and old artists who share the anti-racist, anti-fascist message that sits at the center of their ethos as a band.
