WATCH: Philly DA Candidate Larry Krasner Attempts to Rock The Clash’s “Clampdown”
As the Pa. Primary nears (it’s tomorrow, people – check out our guide) you’re probably seeing more and more of the Philadelphia district attorney candidates – on flyers, TV, social media, etc. But we can guarantee you haven’t seen one candidate like this.
Democrat Larry Krasner (who has no shortage of ads, thanks to a major funding boost from a George Soros-tied super PAC), performed with Philly punk band SHEER MAG at the First Unitarian Church this past Friday, May 13th.
Philly photographer Scott Troyan filmed Krasner on stage, clad in a white dress shirt and tie, somewhat awkwardly covering The Clash’s “Clampdown” with SHEER MAG’s Tina Halladay.
Maybe the performance will bring some Philly punks to the polls – or maybe not. Who knows. It wasn’t quite as enthusiastic (or memorable) as former Mayor Michael Nutter’s mic-dropping stint with the Roots in 2015 – but it’s entertaining to watch, nonetheless.
