Description

When The Clash played in Trinity College Dublin on 21 October 1977 they were fresh from a cancelled show and mini riot at Belfast’s Ulster Hall the night before. Bringing the white heat of UK Punk Rock to an Irish audience, The Clash played two sets of 35 minutes, inspiring attendees and kick-starting dozens of careers in the process.

Year Zero is a symposium celebrating the 40th anniversary of The Clash’s two shows at Trinity College Dublin.

On 21 October 2017, a full day symposium will take place, featuring talks, Q&As, readings and screenings by original members of The Clash’s touring party, former TCD Student Officers involved in promoting the shows, filmmakers and close associates of the band. The event will be held in the Examinations Hall, TCD – the original venue for the 1977 shows.

The day’s celebrations will culminate in a DJ Set by filmmaker, DJ and Clash associate Don Letts at The Grand Social, Dublin.

Martin Bradley, Chris Heaney and Robert Gordon McHarg III of Year Zero said “The Clash shows in Dublin in 1977 created ripples throughout the fields of music, art and film – many of those who attended went on to significant creative careers and cite this gig as a pivotal moment in understanding the possibility of following such a path. We’re delighted to be able to work with Trinity College Dublin in shining a light on this often overlooked aspect of Irish cultural history’’

Take this opportunity to attend screenings, Q&As and readings featuring Julien Temple, Don Letts, Robin Banks, Johnny Green, Ian Wilson, Paul Tipping, Brian McMahon and John Fisher and to attend the first ever performance in Dublin by legendary DJ Don Letts.
