4.5 superbdub sean | February 28th 08

Over 100,000 fans gather around a small makeshift stage set up in the Hatch Shell in the local Boston area. Traffic is set to a stand-still, roads are completely blocked off by fans, and the reverb of Dispatch's farewell concert resounds throughout the city. This would be the biggest concert for any indie band to date, and who are the men behind all this madness? Just three Bostonian jammers, Braddigan, Chetro, and Pete. The band that started as three college friends playing guitar with one another has morphed into the largely celebrated Dispatch, and All Points Bulletin superbly marks the end of the band's career. Classic songs like The General, Bats in the Belfry, Two Coins, Elias, and Bang Bang are performed to perfection, often with the addition of saxophones, horns, pianos, and bongos. The band offers an array of different music. Guitar solos are brought to the spotlight by Pete Francis, African tribal tunes are sought out by Braddigan, and reggae jams are put forth by Chetro; all melding into the spotlight of the band's final concert...and the crowd is singing along with every minute.
