CULTURE CLASH! CELEBRATE THE CONCLUSION OF THIS GROUNDBREAKING EXHIBITION
WITH LEGENDARY 6 MUSIC DJ, FILMMAKER, REGGAE / PUNK PIONEER DON LETTS
@ ARNOLFINI BRISTOL SUNDAY 11 SEPTEMBER 2016 8PM -11PM
Arnolfini and RWA invite you to join us for a special CULTURE CLASH closing party with Don Letts. Exploring the longstanding connections and crossovers between Reggae and Punk, we are celebrating the final day of Jamaican Pulse at RWA and Moving Targets at Arnolfini.
Widely acknowledged as the man who introduced reggae to the punk crowd in the 1970s while DJing at legendary venue The Roxy, Letts will be taking over the Arnolfini’s auditorium to bring us a set that, in the spirit of the original ‘punky reggae party’ will be designed to get the crowd moving.
As well as continuing to DJ both nationally and internationally, Letts credits include: co-founding the band Big Audio Dynamite with Mick Jones of The Clash; directing over 300 music videos for artists ranging from Public Image Limited to Bob Marley; and making documentary films on, among others, Gil Scot-Heron, The Jam and Paul McCartney. Published in 2007, his autobiography is entitled Culture Clash: Dread Meets Punk Rockers.
Don will also be showing his CARNIVAL 2pm at the RWA. Arnolfini will be presenting a Docu-film double-bill exploring race and gender identities within the punk scene as part of Moving Targets from 4pm.
