Rare flyer for a benefit show played (uncredited) by The Clash, featuring artwork from the cover of the band’s 1978 album "Give ‘Em Enough Rope." This fundraiser event grew from organizers’ efforts to open an all-ages club for the early San Francisco punk scene. Joe Strummer and Mick Jones showed up, interested in playing the benefit, but couldn’t be credited as The Clash, as they were under contract with Bill Graham. Instead they are credited as "The Best Band Ever, Direct from England!"

Thus, the day after the Clash played with Bo Diddley at the Berkeley Community Theater, they played the New Yooth Movement benefit, supported by the Zeros and Negative Trend.
