Hey Friends, if you are in the Vancouver area come and join me Friday August 10th as I return to my north Burnaby roots. I’ll be playing a whole stack of DOA classics along with my good friends and ex DOA members Ford Pier and Floor Tom Jones. You will also be entertained by the deep reggae of Secret ’77 led by Greg “Two Shirts” Hathaway (Roots Roundup).
What also makes this a really special evening is the location: we will play the 100 capacity Lochdale Hall, which where I attended my first rock concert when I was 15 years old. Lochdale Hall is a block from my old high school: Burnaby North High. This return to my stomping grounds is also where DOA played in 1980 and in the front of the hall is where we shot the front cover of DOA first album: Something Better Change.
The event is from 7 PM to 11 PM and it is a “fun-raiser” for the Burnaby Green Party. I am running for city council in Burnaby, our goal is to give the boot to our “Trump” like mayor Derek Corrigan and his do nothing BCA council. Our goal is to elect enough Greens to make Burnaby a fair and sustainable city for all of our citizens
Tickets are cheap: $20, we will be serving refreshments of all sorts and there will be a chance to bid on some Vancouver punk rock memorabilia. Lochdale Hall 490 Sperling Ave (at Hastings St) in north Burnaby.
Tickets are $20 Tickets available at Eventbrite, Red Cat Records, Neptoon Records, and BurnabyGreenParty.com. Get tickets here https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/fun-raiser-for-burnaby-civic-green-party-tickets-48160482299
If you can’t attend you can donate to the cause at: BurnabyGreenParty.com, we need help against our opponents who have received huge amounts of dough from developers. You can also help out by volunteering or just taking an apartment or lawn sign.
D.O.A. new album Fight Back out now on red and black vinyl
Our new album Fight Back, is out now on regular black vinyl and limited edition red vinyl. Paddy, Corkscrew and I have been touring all summer long in the USA and it feels great to be back home. The Fight Back tour was really exciting and people were picking up on the new songs from Fight Back we were playing live. We do have the album in stock on regular black vinyl and we have about 150 copies of the limited edition 12″ red vinyl still left. http://suddendeath.com/store/vinyl
