March 8, 1980. The Clash comes to Boston in support of London Calling and turns in an all-time set at the Orpheum Theatre.


This is vintage Clash: they open with “Clash City Rockers,” close the 20-song set with “Complete Control,” and encore with “London Calling” b-side “Armagideon Time.” Hop in the wayback machine with a full-show bootleg of the performance below, and marvel at the rest of the setlist.
