D.O.A.: To Hell N’ Back: DVD

Jun 13, 2014

This brand new video documents the farewell tour of these Canadian punk legends. Two shows at the Rickshaw Theatre in Vancouver, BC bookend this release. Both of these seemed fairly well-attended, this being their hometown and all. For contrast, the band includes a far more intimate show, shot in Calgary, Alberta. This set is really fun to watch. There’s also a pair of songs from a show in Canmore, Alberta. These are not full shows in these segments, so you get the benefit of not getting a ton of repeat songs. Randy Rampage sings back-ups on a couple songs at one of the Vancouver shows. So does “Floor Tom” Jones, who, after Chuck Biscuits, is my favorite D.O.A. drummer. A fitting end to an incredible band. R.I.P Dave Gregg but long live the legacy of D.O.A.! –Sean Koepenick (MVD PO Box 280, Oaks, PA 19456)
