The indie acts [Clifton’s] assembled for this ambitious fundraiser aren’t — with the exception of S— From Hell, which features Canadian punk pioneer Warren Kinsella — strictly punk, but they all share the do-your-own-thing spirit that defined The Clash.
“Maybe adolescence is by nature punkish. You’re defying authority, because authority is by nature bound with tradition. There’s an emerging consciousness. You’re defining all that’s gone wrong and what should being going right. The basic moral principle is you should care about people.”
The festival will also present Joe Strummer: The Future Is Unwritten, an ’07 musical doc, at Waterloo’s Princess Cinema (6:45 p.m. Thursday) and are staging an online art and collectibles charity auction.
