Mick Jones Plays Three Classics by The Clash at the Public Library

The venue isn’t as large. The head of hair isn’t as full. The beat does­n’t dri­ve as hard. But the song remains the same. Above, Mick Jones revis­its a Clash clas­sic, “Train in Vain,” at the open­ing of The Rock and Roll Pub­lic Library in 2009. If you want to see vin­tage Clash, then check out some of the clas­sic Clash con­certs we’ve high­light­ed below. Oth­er charm­ing songs played that day at the library include:

Should I Stay or Should I Go?

Stay Free

Note: We orig­i­nal­ly post­ed Mick­’s library gig in March of 2012. I’m repost­ing it today to see if we’ve got some tech bugs worked out and because I love these endear­ing clips so much. Hope you enjoy.
