Canada’s Legendary Punk Kings… the Godfathers of Canadian Punk … D.O.A. … ARE COMING TO TOWN! The Okanagan’s only D.O.A. concert this year is exclusively engaged at the Firehall Brewery’s Back Alley Concert Series 2019, in Oliver, British Columbia on Saturday, July 13th. Bookings are already backed up at tattoo parlors for tats and piercings.
For nearly 25 years, D.O.A. has been happily slashing away at all manner of philosophical enemies. They’ve travelled the globe almost continuously since they formed in 1978; they released their first snarling piece of vinyl, the “Disco Sucks” EP in June of that year. That slab of plastic opened the door to international prominence, riots, rip-off record companies and three generations of fans. D.O.A.’s sound and philosophy has been held together by Canada’s Godfather of Punk, Joey “Shithead” Keithley. D.O.A. has travelled a long, tough road that has taken them around the world, and the raw energy continues. The band has never been more active, having released their second DVD, D.O.A.’s “Greatest Shits”. Mayor Larry Campbell of Vancouver declared December 21st to be “D.O.A. Day” in Vancouver. The band has also been featured in punk and political books, TV and radio documentaries around the world
There is so much we could say but, screw it! We say this. July 13th in Oliver is going to be a massive punk extravaganza. Doors fly open at 7:00pm, and Oliver’s own killer band Desert Arms will open the blast and leave you weeping. Tickets are only $20, and we only have so many, so when they’re gone they’re gone. Get ‘em at the Firehall Brewery when you’re in for a pint, or snatch ‘em here on EventBrite before they escape to quicker hands.
Come join in the power and non-compromise that is D.O.A.
