This just in.... announcing, “This is Radio Clash” - a tribute to the words, music, and attitude of the pioneering and political rock band, the Clash.
To celebrate their legacy and musical diversity, WMNF is presenting over 17 bands and solo performers ranging in style from Rock to Reggae, Cajun to Folk and almost everything in between. All the bands and solo performers will interpret their favorite Clash classics in their own style. Doors open at 4 pm, with music from 5 pm until midnight.
Aspiring artists are welcome to perform their version of a Clash song at the open-mic portion of the program, from 5 to 6pm.
The definitive British rockers, The Clash was fiery and idealistic, charged with righteousness and a vocal political ideology. They were blessed with two exceptional songwriters in Joe Strummer and Mick Jones and from the outset. Musically adventurous, the band was constantly experimenting and complemented hard rock & roll with reggae, dub, ska , New Orleans R&B, rockabilly and other roots music.
WMNF 88.5 FM is listener-sponsored, commercial-free community radio in Tampa and an organization dedicated to the promotion of peace, equality, and social and economic justice. The Clash advocated for these ideals in songs such as "The Call Up,” “White Man,” “Know Your Rights,” and “Washington Bullets.”
The Bay Area Arts and Music Organization (BAAMO) is a non- profit, volunteer- powered group of music lovers with a commitment to promoting local artists in the Tampa Bay area and the world.

THIS IS RADIO CLASH: Performer Bios
The Beauvilles (Rock/Alternative) With influences from Hendrix to Stravinsky, The Beauvilles have wowed audiences from the Nemo Music Festival in Boston to the NARAS/Grammy showcase in Miami. “The Beauvilles have an uncanny knack for creating music that is passionate, moody, and nothing short of brilliant.”(RagMagazine) www.thebeauvilles.net
Blind Buddy Moody (Blues) “Blind Buddy Moody is the finest roots performer to emerge on the local scene this year” (Creative Loafing). A native Floridian and veteran of the southern juke joint circuit, Moody once appeared on bills with George Jones, Tammy Wynette, and Waylon Jennings but was toiling in obscurity when Mojo Guru’s Kevin Steele discovered him playing for tips at a flea market. Moody’s new live CD, “See No Evil” is getting rave reviews and he was named by tbt as one of the Top Ten acts in Tampa Bay. www.myspace.com/blindbuddymoody
Christie Lenee (Funk/Nu-Jazz/Folk-Rock) Bounding “from folk to classical, while dropping jazz, blues and jam-band-friendly funk lines along the way,” she’ll also “unleash hot, heavy licks that make classical rock fans drool." (Creative Loafing) www.myspace.com/christieleneemusic
Hat Trick Heroes (Rock/Psychedelic/Alternative) Declaring “WAR ON EMO” the loud & proud power trio are set “to bring back the real rock n roll attitude of the 60’s and 70’s when free love reigned and music had some balls.” They signed with Combustion Music Nashville last summer & are working on a new album. “[Showing] rock wisdom beyond their years…the sound is very no-frills, classic rock, but comes largely in high def (tbt) www.myspace.com/hattrickheroes
Have Gun Will Travel (Americana) Matthew Burke’s acoustic solo project, Have Gun, Will Travel, was cited by Tampa’s Creative Loafing as the critic’s pick for “Best New Band of 2007” and has garnered praise from music aficionados far and wide. As The Bradenton Herald explains, “The melodies are soothing like strong medicine. Burke's vocals are subtle yet somehow manage to grab you by the throat at the same time.” www.myspace.com/hgwt
Johnny Zoom Cheerlead Squad (Reved-up Garage Rock) Johnny Zoom Cheerlead Squad “drags rockabilly through the garage and across an alley behind CBGB where Lou Reed and The Stones did God knows what.” (Tampa Tribune) www.myspace.com/johnnyzoomcheerleadsquad
Male Order Brides (Rock/Blues) www.myspace.com/themaleorderbrides
Parson Brown (Eclectic) Parson Brown’s music has been described as 60’s inspired folk mixing introspection & humor with originality & tradition. www.myspace.com/theparsonbrownband
Scone Train (Folk Rock/Acoustic) Two women, two guitars with “a dash of mandolin, a pinch of ukulele,” plus sweet harmonies and soulful rhythms. www.myspace.com/allaboardthesconetrain
Super Secret Best Friends (Rock/Pop) St. Petersburg Times writers by day and by night, an “energetic pop trio composed of witty, pretty pop culture mavens who know how to work a crowd…The SSBF sexy charm and moxie will grab attention like a Britney Spears wardrobe malfunction.”(tbt) www.myspace.com/supersecretbestfriends
Urbane Cowboys (Americana) “If a band has designs on being a credible country rock/cow punk act, there has to be an appreciation and understanding of both genres and the many gray areas in between. Tampa's Urbane Cowboys…work the various Americana back roads that inform their twang 'n' bang with balanced assurance.” (Weekly Planet) www.myspace.com/urbanecowboys
Katherine Kelly (Electroacoustic/Folk Rock/Indie) Guitarist from Sarasota’s recently departed Nous Rapport, Katherine Kelly is sure to become a favorite solo performer given her ability to write thoughtful lyrics in unexpected, interesting compositions. www.myspace.com/katherinebarneskelly
