Big Audio Dynamite are walking legends! They’re finally making their return to the states for the first time in nearly 20 years and they’re doing it at The Roxy.
BAD features ex-singer/guitarist of The Clash, Mick Jones and the original lineup (playing April 14) also includes Don Letts, Leo Williams, Greg Roberts & Dan Donovan. From 1984-1990, the band released 5 albums and by 91, now known as Big Audio Dynamite II, the band only featured Mick Jones. in 1994, they released Higher Power as Big Audio and in 95 & 97, released albums again as Big Audio Dynamite.
The band is best known for mixing hip hop, punk, reggae and funk into a new but familiar sound reminiscent of The Clash.
They had multiple singles in the UK & US and these are the ones you’ll probably remember
The Bottom Line:
Tickets for the show sold out in just an hour! If you’re lucky enough to have tickets, doors are at 10:00pm for this pre-Coachella gig with no opening acts.
