Beloved South East Queensland legends The Chats tore up Melbourne’s Forum theatre with trail blazing support from USA Mean Jeans & Melbourne locals The Prize.
The Chats smashed through 20 something, bone crunching, high voltage, punk rock classics. With barely a moment for breath, every song seemed to be pushing close to 2x speed or more compared to recorded versions, very reminiscent of early Ramones shows.
Filled with bogan mullets and sweaty flannelettes, The Forum crowd lapped up every sound screeching decibel that The Chats dished out. If you haven’t already, do yourself a favour and catch The Chats on their GET FUCKED world album tour!
