Indie rockers The Kooks will play a special show for the Strummerville charity this Friday (August 21).

The gig will mark the closing of Mick Jones' Rock & Roll Public library, which runs until August 25th.

All proceeds from the event will go to Strummerville - The Joe Strummer New Music Foundation - with the event also being held on the same date as Joe Strummer's Birthday.
