Dr. John Cooper Clarke

One of the UK's most stylish, political and influential poets, John Cooper Clarke has been performing since the late '70s when he first gained notoriety in the Manchester punk scene. Since then, he's toured on the same bill as the Buzzcocks, Siouxsie and the Banshees, the Sex Pistols, Joy Division and Alan Ginsburg, to name a few. To see him live is quite the experience: He's maintained a signature, old-school punk aesthetic, and renditions of his poems are usually rapid-fire, a cappella and bitingly funny. Don't miss this chance to see one of the world's leading alternative literary figures, the self-described "name behind the hairstyle."
