DOA - Welcome to Chinatown Live Album Release Party
with The Ford Pier Vengence Trio, Jenny, Mr. Plow, Aging Youth Gang
D.O.A., Canada’s legendary punk pioneers have a brand new live album: Welcome to Chinatown – D.O.A. Live. The tracks were culled from three nights at Vancouver’s historic Rickshaw Theatre. The shows took place between June 2011 and January 2013, it has resulted in the definitive D.O.A. album. Welcome to Chinatown has captured the true essence of what critics have hailed as perhaps Canada’s all time most thrilling live band. The album gets right down to D.O.A’s no holds barred, frantic style that has helped them win over three generations of fans and made D.O.A. Canada’s most influential band, with the exception of Rush.
“Welcome to Chinatown is a tribute to Vancouver’s famous Chinatown district and our downtown eastside, which was the birthplace of D.O.A. in February 1978. The Rickshaw is just a couple of blocks away from our first practice place and our first shows at the Japanese Hall and The Smiling Buddha. Chinatown, the DTES, it’s residents and D.O.A. have faced a lot of tough times, but we’ve managed to pull through with perseverance and a lot of heart, so after 35 years it’s fitting that we recorded this live album at The Rickshaw.” – Joe Keithley
