Event Description

Motorama, The East Vamps and Vancouver Killing Spree join Dirty and the Derelicts for their final show!

After a decade of playing the dingiest bars in Vancouver and Canada, we've decided to call it quits.

Joining us for our final show will be original lead guitarist Mike "Red" McLeod and drummer Blake "Captain Heatscore" McCandless will be rocking along with Johnny Dropout.

We've had a few line up changes over the years, and every change brought a new vibe to the songs. This time around my long time partner-in-crime Mr. Greasy Wormlips decided he'd had enough. For me, the thought of teaching a new bass player the old songs and getting the sound down again seemed more like work than a pursuit of passion. I wrote "The Party Song" when I was 23 years old. Still love that song... it's honest and fun and rockin. But it's not where I am now.

I never worried about conforming to a specific sub-genre of rock and roll... it was all about the song. My goal has always been to write the perfect pop song, and there's a few I think qualify, but I'll wait another decade or two to make a verdict. We may not have set the Vancouver music scene on fire, but I think we added a bit of colour to the proceedings.

This has been nothing but fun for me, even when it sucked. I wrote most of the lyrics for our second album "The Usual Way" while working at a landscape company and walking the length of Skytrain line picking up garbage. It occupied my thoughts in a good way. And it was exciting. Dizzy had never camped in his life until we went to California on tour and had days to kill and nowhere to go. Greasy and Red had never been east of Alberta till we toured the country. We hit 8 of the provinces, (sorry Nova Scotia and Newfoundland/Labrador). We got to visit old friends and family along the way. We made new ones. We played hundreds of shows. It's been awesome.

There's so many people I'd like to thank, but I'd miss too many. All the fans, bands, promoters, friends, families, well-wishers and enemies. Thank You all!

Hope you can make it to the show.
