*NO PERFORMANCE* JUST A FUN PARTY WITH THE DISHRAGS CELEBRATING THEIR LP RELEASE !!
A new 12″ vinyl LP of the original Dishrags power trio, entitled Three, features 14 previously unreleased live recordings, plus their first 3-song single, 2 songs recorded for Vancouver Complication, and 1 live bonus track from their 1997 CD. The LP comes packaged with a 16-page booklet that contains a detailed history and tons of photos!
Formed in 1976 in Victoria and later relocating to Vancouver, The Dishrags were the first group to perform at Vancouver’s first ever punk rock gig, and may very well be the first all women punk rock group in North America. They performed numerous times in Western Canada and the US, including gigs with The Clash and Ramones, and produced three sets of studio recordings.
