The Chats bring their outrageously hilarious pub rock to Newcastle’s Boiler Shop on Saturday 25th March. The Aussie punks’ tunes are simple yet addictive, and to some degree incredibly hard to explain. Expect lyrics about getting the clap, going for pub grub and taking your ‘smoko’ break on the graft. The humour is working class, full of Australian slang and unapologetically fun, creating a listening experience which veers between creative genius and easy-going rock ‘n’ roll.

The trio, who notoriously “love beer”, formed in a bong shed, and describe themselves as pioneering the ‘shed rock’ genre. They don’t hold back with their unruly style, and they’re supported at the Newcastle show by fellow rebellious rockers Chubby And The Gang, who beautifully blend modern punk with preppy pop beats. Perth rock band Dennis Cometti also support, an Aussie trio whose style is punky and DIY.

This event has been rescheduled a couple of times, with many gig goers having held tickets since 2020 to watch the band tour their High Risk Behaviour album, which debuted in March 2020. Following recent sell-outs in other UK cities, act fast to experience a Saturday night of exciting and entertaining Aussie punk.

The Chats, Chubby And The Gang and Dennis Cometti play Boiler Shop, Newcastle on Saturday 25th March.
