Strummer, best known for his work with The Clash, died in 2002, at the age of 50. His 65th birthday would have been Aug. 21 of this year.
The concert, which is being co-presented by Malin and WBJB-FM music director Jeff Raspe, will raise money for Music & Memory, a nonprofit organization that brings music to the elderly or infirmed; and the Joe Strummer Foundation, whose mission is to”provide opportunities to musicians and support to projects around the world that create empowerment through music.”
