The Last Mile + Parker + Chimers – Dublin Bohs Bar Sept 23 2022

The Last Mile are from Montreal and write songs that are rooted in melody and angst, love/hate and an unwavering hope. Their latest record “Respect The Frequency” came out on Brassneck records in the UK and Rad Girlfriend in the US (label of Leatherface amongst many others)

Parker are from Derry. They have just released their debut single Never Miss. It’s a glorious pop punk fuzzy noise.

Chimers are a couple based in New South Wales. The guitarist is originally from Kilkenny (and played in punk legends Cheapskate). They are paying a long awaited family visit and while here are going to delight us with their garage, noise hardcore sound.

Hope Collective have been involved in putting on diy events and publications since 1980’s monochrome Dublin. Previous gigs include bands like Fugazi, Babes In Toyland, Therapy?, NoMeansNo, Green Day, Jawbreaker and a legion of others listed here

This event is a benefit for Aoibhneas Domestic Support for Women and Children
